Off Like a Herd of Speeding Turtles plus June #writemotivation update
Yes, that is how June has started. Despite my desire to move faster, I am being lapped by turtles...specifically the turtles resting on the on in the picture above. I would be more frustrated except that I know that other authors out there have the same problem. It happens. You get over it, you move on.
My goal for May was to finish my WIP. This didn't happen. However, in my defense, I was writing a short story for my Creative Writing class that I ultimately submitted to the college literary journal. Feedback from various writerly friends and students from my class was really positive. So, we'll wait...and wait...and wait...and maybe hear back.
On other good news, poetry.com has risen from the dead. Spent some time on there and it looks really nice. I finally found my old poems that I posted on there. I've included links in my Publications and WIPs page. Check them out and leave me a comment if you want.
Also on that page, you'll see that I have retired "The Forgotten Arch". I did that because I was incorporating it into WIP#1 and have decided to alter it significantly to fit better into the plot (and because I have some ideas to make it sound cooler).
So, my goal for June? Well, I would like to finish the first draft of WIP#1 so I can get it out to Crit/Betas for review. Almost done, but like I said, I'm running a little slow right now. So, we'll see what happens. June isn't a #writemotivation check-in month, but I'll still be posting updates via Twitter and this blog. I also plan on cheering for all of my writer friends out there in the Tweet-verse. You guys are an inspiration and a joy to talk to.
'Till next time.
