It’s Wednesday check in for ROW80. How’s everyone doing so far?
I am on “vacation” from the EDJ for a week. Thank the stars. Gives me time to work on my projects and get them on the right track.
I’ve tweaked a few chapters of my novel and started my submission for the End of World call with Samhain. I figured out a tricky plot point so it’s flowing rather well.
I took a look around writing bloglandia and came away discouraged. It seems there is a battle cry of despair and it’s spreading like a virus all over the net. I’m a realist…always have been. If I want to be published, I do the work. I can’t rely on someone else to pick up my torch and write those words for me. During ROW80 I’ve seen some wonderful encouragement and that’s what puts me at ease.
You’ve got to find positives every day. Mine today is this: I have two wonderful writing friends who have given me their current works in progress to beta read. I got to spend several hours today just enjoying two great stories. THAT is my positive moment.
What about you?
