Finally, my “new” Chapter 1 for Scarlet Daughter is done. It’s rough and needs a lot of editing, but it’s done. And close enough to being reviewed by critique group (though not in time for my spot next week…oops).
Perhaps I need to lament about being a poor writer more often. It seems I was able to write almost 3K more after that little woe-is-me diatribe.
I also think I need to spend time writing the “old fashioned” way. You know, with pen and paper. 😛 And I think it’s time for me to go through my old portfolio of stories and read them. Then it will show me how far I’ve come…and that I started writing at an early age (first novel was completed at age 11). Maybe it will help me rediscover my writerly side.
Anyway, just wanted to thank everyone for all the encouraging comments a few posts back. I think the support aspect of writing is what actually keeps me going much of the time.
