Today is Fiction Friday, but I’ll be honest, I’m not ready to share any more of my fiction. It’s just not where it should be. It’s riddled with mistakes and I don’t have the time to fix it right now. I haven’t written anything on my work in progress (WIP) in almost a month. Isn’t that terrible?
I’m trying not to freak out over it. There will be other times to write, but currently life is getting in the way a bit. It has a little to do with the kids not having any schoolwork to do and a lot to do with the sunshine. I just want to be outside and feel the warmth of the sun burn freckles into my skin.
I want to enjoy my summer.
I also want to be more disciplined and get my book finished. I already have another idea in the making and it’s killing me not to multi-task. I just do not think my pea-brain can handle writing two completely different stories at the same time.
So today I offer you some encouragement.
Here’s Stephanie Meyer’s advice for writers. If you’ve been living in a cave without media for the last couple of years, she’s the author of the Twilight Series.
If you know you want to write, but don’t know what to write about, here’s some advice from Mary Higgins Clark.
If you’re wondering how to write a novel, watch this.
Ok, so I think I’ll take her advice and just go write.
Happy weekend lovelies!
