Ladies and Gentlemen!
I have been in a funk. Like a am I happy with my career I just want to sit in bed and read everyone's life is going better than mine right now funk. And I don't really have a reason for it.
I give to you my Happy Writer Moments.
Last week, thanks in large part to the IWSG, I passed 100 followers on my blog. This happened in just three months, and still blows me away when I think about it.
I wrote a scene that has been hanging out in my head for MONTHS, just waiting for me to get all the framework in place and be in the right frame of mind to write it. I have re-read it three or four times, and haven't made a change to it yet. That rarely happens for me.
And, I added myself to the first chapter competition at LDStorymakers. That means that at that conference, I'm attending the publication primer, participating in a pitch session and entering a competition. It's really putting myself out there as a writer, but I decided I had hid this in my own closet for too long, put it off, which meant putting off my dreams, and I was not okay with that.
Also, I'm thinking about making this a regular feature on my blog - maybe once or twice a month with a little linky-loo so lots of others can play - thoughts?
It's your turn - what have been your recent Happy Writer Moments? What keeps you coming back to this, even when everything else is crashing and your are peaking at the good stuff on the other side of the fence?
