Blog Post 14
Where my work stands.
Being a writer of any kind will have its ups and downs. As with many writers, the thought of quitting likes to come and go as things become difficult. This year I focused mainly on putting content on my site, slowly improving with each post, be it blogging, short stories, or adding chapters to my ongoing story. Though I can’t be sure how many people thoroughly read my content, I hope the ones that do enjoy what I post.
My most significant setback this year was my decision not to move forward with a manuscript I submitted for editing in early January of this year. Once the report got back to me on how the story needed to be fixed for it to work, I realized I needed to move forward. Therefore, I made a difficult decision. I know I’m not the first writer to drop a manuscript consisting of tens of thousands of words, and I surely won’t be the last. Choosing where to invest your time and energy carefully is part of the craft. Of course, I’m saying nothing new; I’m sure any writer that may read this can relate.
I have hope for my next project. Though I’m only 15,000 words into my first draft at the time of this blog post, I feel good about the new project and have gotten good feedback from my inner circle. However, I still have a long way to go in completing it. Nevertheless, I get a step closer with each word I type.
