Wahoo! We are well into Round 2 of Row 80, and I am proud to be one of the sponsors helping out the lovely and talented Kait Nolan on her ambitious endeavor to keep writers writing.
Today, you can find me ranting about how to get started on a new work, or how to write your way out of writer’s block over at the Row 80 site. (Just scroll down after Kait’s Wednesday check-in to see my words of wisdom) Hop on over and give a look.
As for me? Where am I?
I am struggling to keep my head above water… that’s where I am. I was hoping to have a sports-free spring, but that didn’t work out. Why do parents suffer when kids want to do sports? My goodness… I want to support my kids, but what a time suck! Don’t these other parents have writing to do after their normal workday? Blogging? Publisher’s deadlines? Critiquing? Oh… I’m the only one who does that. Ergghhhh.
I am sticking with my one goal for 2012.
And guess what? If you haven’t heard… YES! I am getting published!
See that pretty little book cover to the right? Yep, that’s my name!
But signing the contract does not mean the work is done. I’m busy editing and reworking right now, and working through my marketing plan. It’s tons of work.
I’m also playing around with a new idea in my head. I need to get it outlined so I can start the fun of exploding things writing something new. I guess that is my short-term goal… get through the outline so I can get to the fun part.
