I'm still taking baby steps, as far as getting back into writing is going. There are moments when I feel highly
what I'm dealing with.
It doesn't help that my writing group dissolved in all the chaos last fall. They had helped keep me on track and inspired. I haven't had it in me to try to scrape together enough interested members to try again.
I signed up to be matched up with a crit partner through the Authoress's blog (current submissions are closed, but she writes there will be another such event), and found not one, but two interested parties. Both of them had very similar feedback, and I bounced some ideas off them, and they were very helpful. I've been working on returning the favor, but it's going slowly. Not because of poor writing; I've been blessed with two gifted writers having found me. My motivation is just all over the place.
I had thought the feedback would lead me to work on book one, which is what I submitted to my crit partners. Instead, it got me thinking about book two, and I've been tapping away at that. Right now, I have 9960 words, and another five handwritten pages, waiting to be transcribed.
It's a bizarre way of approaching it, but, whatever can get me back to writing on a regular basis, I'll take.
Hopefully this time next month, I'll have tens of thousands of words more.
I've caught up on book reviews, for the time being, but I keep falling behind, in addition to my weekly blog posts. If you have an idea for a guest post, or if you have a request for a concept you'd like me to dig deeper into, please feel free to drop me an email or a comment.
Always feel free to drop me a comment. Yes, I do screen comments, in addition to putting it behind word verification. If you had any idea the flood of spam I was stemming before I added those steps, you'd know it's worth never getting another legitimate comment again.
But, I would like to hear from you. How are your projects? What are you working on now?
