There is nothing more annoying than discovering a blog you love only to find it is never updated. I am trying not to be that blogger, so when I hit a dry spell I will post a “checking in” piece.
Last week I spoke with Courtney Carver at Be More With Less. I was struggling with finding time for my writing and the confidence to label it as a job since it isn’t currently paying any bills. Courtney gave me a fantastic pep talk and even used our conversation for a wonderful post about the importance of making time for our creative work.
After Courtney got me revved up and raring to go, I put my nose to the novel grindstone. I have been moving forward on a new piece in a genre I never saw myself writing. YA Fantasy. However, the words have been pouring out of me, so I think I’m on the right track. I will share more about this story in another post.
I have also been devoting more time to reading. Awesome books have always driven my desire to write. The more I read, the more inspired I become. I have realized that reading is essential to my work as a writer. Stay tuned for more book reviews.
Until next time…
