Not much to report this week. A lot of writing. A lot of trying to get out of bed early--sometimes making it, sometimes falling back to sleep on the couch. I've been tackling to-do lists and projects and planning content for the blog. But I also wanted to take another moment to say thank you.… Continue reading Thank You
I've already sent off a query for this month.... And gotten the rejection letter. So how will I spend my weekend? Rewriting of course! And maybe sending another query if I feel brave. Wish me luck.
This week we were hit with a massive amount of snow and ice. I used the time to write. And to send off another query letter, and.... My manuscript was rejected within 24 hours. *Long sigh* Writing is supposed to fun, right? And it is. I love it. I have since I was in the… Continue reading Keep Writing
Good news.... after last week, I've officially sent a query letter. First time in... wow, probably at least two years. My resolution to send one each month is off to a decent start. Bad news.... here lately, I've had trouble getting out of bed. Getting the day started. Getting stuff done. My resolution to become… Continue reading Some Good News, Some Bad News… and Some New Conviction
*Deep breath* I did it. I sent out a query letter. The first one in... years. *Another deep breath* Take that, New Year's Resolution!
See, here's the thing about me: When I set a New Year's Resolution, I actually mean it. I don't always hit it, but I do, consistently throughout the year, try to reach it. So when I say that I'm working on becoming a morning person and writing more, etc., I really, really am. Because I'm… Continue reading The Hardest Resolution
Not much more to update this week--but I am still going in the right direction. Slowly, but surely, I am becoming more acquainted with the morning. Are there some days where the bed is just too warm and cozy and I remain trapped by the blankets and pillows? Yes, of course. But are there also… Continue reading Focus….
Alright, new year, new opportunities! I've been taking "baby steps" to becoming a morning person. Some days I hit the snooze a million times, and some days, I only hit it a 100,000. Of course, it doesn’t help that my body decided to not be able to sleep at night. *sigh* I've taken the time… Continue reading Baby Steps
Alright, here they are: My resolutions for 2021: (1) Actually become a morning person. (Yeah, I know that was a goal for this year. No, I did not accomplish it.) (2) Keep my blog updated. (Which will be easier if I become a morning person, and therein, have more time to write.) (3) Actually finish… Continue reading Let’s Talk Goals
So... Friday came and went. Which means I missed my “publishing update” blog post. Oops. Better late than never, I suppose. This week was focused more on work. Not much writing (and not even much reading) happened. But I have been thinking about writing priorities. Obviously, I need to keep making material for my blog.… Continue reading Writing Priorities
