It’s been such a busy week that I haven’t had much time to think about something unique for a blog post.
I sent a short story (1500 words) out to four magazine publishers to see if I can get a ‘nibble’, and hopefully one of them likes it enough to want to publish it.
I’ve done quite a few critiques this week for other writers, some in the writing group and some outside of the writing group.
I wrote three stories (1500 words each) for the October writing challenge and the third one was my favorite and I’ve submitted it for the challenge. At first, writing about the topics seemed difficult, but by the third piece, the ideas were flowing easily, and I’m happy with the way the last one turned out.
I’ve got to get my butt moving and re-write chapter 3 of my wip, and start revising chapter 4. Since outlining, I’ve changed much of the sequence of events in my story, so re-writing has to occur. I think I’ll have some time after today to start working on it again.
With all the other things that go on in our daily lives, I think I’ve made some good progress this week.
I look back at my writing from 6 months ago and I can clearly see improvement in my writing, and I owe it all to my writing group and crit partners in the OWG. 🙂
