Always after a rousing writers meeting, I feel the need to take status of where I'm at with my writing.
Right now, I'm doing some line edits for a friend's book --she writes looooong ones so it will take awhile but I wanted to set some time aside to do it. So that's my first priority.
But it's hard not to write for myself in the meantime, so I also started a new WIP. YAY! At 1000 words but this time, I'm trying to do something different--- make myself outline the plot. A twist for me as I usually just write from the seat of my pants.
I've found that to get a good plot, I better plan it out. I have fought against doing it this way but am finding that the great story gets the attention--not the good structure. I just read a blog about it thanks to another blogger's post(Cindy) and thought--yup--that's me. Craft is okay but my story ideas need work.
Other than that, I've submitted a few short stories and I'm finally reading a book--Pecoult's newest one.
But you what I enjoy more than anything? Blogging. Wouldn't it be nice if we got paid for it?
There's my this and that report. Would love to hear yours!
