So I had a bit of a downer feeling towards my writing yesterday. My weekends are always tough, but setting myself up with a goal to each over the weekend might have been my downfall. I think I will go back to my “weekly” goals, so to not chastise myself if I don’t make a smaller one. So here I go, back to 10K works a week.
So far I’m at 741. The week is young my friends, and I’m feeling very inspired right now.
I just read Tips for the First-Time Backspacers – a post by the lovely Laura Lee Anderson – and I am fueled with a desire to write until my fingers fall off (well, preferably not, I will need them in the future). I want to attend a writers conference, but I feel like I should have a novel behind me, or at least a huge bulk of it. there is another Backspace Writers Conference in November. I think that wont give me enough time to get my novel in the condition I want it to be in before querying it. And since I’m new to the whole “let’s get serious about my writing” I don’t know of many other conferences to attend. Any suggestions?
Anyways, I plan on attacking my goal with a vengeance this week. And how about if I reach my goal I give a bit of a sneak peak at where I’m going with this novel? What do you guys think of that? I’m very proud of my idea and the direction my words are going in. So I cannot wait to take you guys through my novel’s journey with me!
Happy Monday everyone!
