Writing the beginning if fun. Writing the middle is hard.
I have amazing Crit partners who offer advice, listen to whining and send care packages.
Also, they write beautiful words like these.
Some days are easier than others.
Some days are impossible.
The people in the rest of my life have no concept of what I’m doing, nor do they want to hear about it (excepting, of course, my husband and kids).
I draft well with music. (I think it mostly drowns out the noise of the kids)
I wore a hole in the butt of my favorite jeans. Yep. And I’m not ashamed.
After this month is over I’m going to:
Buy new jeans. Go to dinner to celebrate. Go to a movie. Not write on the weekends. And try to keep the momentum going!
How are you doing? What have you learned?
