My journey through the world of writing and everything that lies in between…


So, I was sick for about a week and a half and that pretty much zapped any desire to do anything. I’ve also been so caught up reading; I haven’t done that in forever and I’ve read six books in the last two weeks so that took me away from writing. Now I have to get back into the swing of things and it’s HARD. It always is…

But then once I jump that initial hurdle, I realize how much I’ve missed it. So…I’m back again, after yet another absence 😛 Today I’m working on making my chapter summary somewhat readable for my crit partners (which shouldn’t take that long–it’s only a basic summary after all) and then I need to jump back into actually writing the story. I need to also work on editing the 2nd chapter since I’m up again at my local crit group in another week and half. But I have to get this thing done, at least the first draft, before June.

And I still need to start that story for the Writer’s  Digest Contest. I’m nervous about it though because my MC is coming out a lot more…um, deranged…than I thought and I’ve never written a character like that before. I guess the only thing I can do is throw myself into it right?

I hope everyone’s writing ventures are going well!

    I have so little time these days to read just to read (most of my reading is for work) that sometimes it’s hard to stop when I do get some time to just read a book for the sake of enjoying it! 🙂

  2. Glad to hear you’re feeling better. I definitely say just throw yourself into it… some of my best writing comes out of that!

  3. Being sick will do that that to you. So far I’ve been pretty healthy this year – knock on wood. Good luck with your writing ventures.

  4. One saying keeps running through my mind in regards to my writing: “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” It’s a Wayne Gretzky quote. Every time I’m in doubt as to whether or not to go for something, I think of that and it inspires me forward.

  5. I’m sorry you were sick but it’s kind of interesting that your character is coming out deranged. Very interesting.
