What am I doing tomorrow?
My friend asked me as one writer to another, what am I doing tomorrow? Writing J
Yeah, I say it with a smile. Even with the rejections, the long nights and longer weekends at my home computer, I am a writer. I catch myself at times saying I’m ‘aspiring’, and then I get mad. Aspiring my arse, I’ve spent serious time plotting, killing off characters, making sweet love, and connecting the dots to bring forth a document of joy. While I realize some early stuff was a bit on the crappy side, I look at what I’m writing now and feel proud. I know I am a writer. I know each day I put words down, I’m improving my craft.
This week marked the return to my job, and even though each night I was too tired to write more than 100 words, I attempted. Some of it was a little out there, but at least I worked on it without pushing myself too hard. 29,199 words is the current count on my paranormal romance WIP that I’m working on NaNoWriMo with. Even though I enjoy the chart feature, the plateau from 13th until today is a little embarrassing.
You know though, I’m keeping my head up and a smile on my face while thinking of all the havoc I will throw at my characters. I perhaps won’t finish the 50,000 goal in time, but rest assured I will keep working on this book. My blog plans for the near future will attempt another Six Sentence Sunday in just a few weeks. I have more writing links to add in the left hand side ‘Writing Links of Interest’, as well as selecting a snippet for ‘The What She Wrote’ section. Another 13 days of writing, then I’ll be able to dedicate a day to the blog goodness.
Break is over, now to head back to my document and allow some words to make magic on the page.
