On November 9th I went to N E Crime Bake 2018. I had a great time, met some wonderful authors and took some interesting Master Classes. Each year I come home so enthused about my writing and determined to get things accomplished. Toward that end I am currently reading “Write Smart Write Happy” by Cheryl St John and I think it will help me. I’m learning some great techniques to get organized and set goals. I am determined to get published within the next 12 months!
I just submitted “Light of the Sun” to another anthology. Wish me luck!
When I went to Crimebake I heard about an intensive one day writing course provided by Mystery Writers of America-MWA University 2.0-that will be held in Boston on February 14. I immediately searched for it but it wasn’t open for registration.
Well, I was able to register on 12/30, so I am good to go! I’m really looking forward to it. I love these types of events, not only for the educational meat of the classes and panels, but for the chance to network with other writers.
I’ve been slacking. Though I hadn’t realized just how bad until I looked at the date of my last post-4/14/14-Yikes!
I have done some writing in that time, but to be honest, not a lot. I have let my time get taken up by other things. Things like (in order): gum surgery (never want to do that again!), a new grandson and all that entails (baby shower, birth, baby sitting, learning how to feed a baby again, etc), which I would do again in a heartbeat, and wrist surgery (both wrists) which I wouldn’t want to do again, but am definitely glad I did do it-no more wrist pain!
Now that I don’t have the excuse of wrist pain, I have to get going again and get my story written. I have some great things in mind for the story and I have actually gotten my characters on the literal road. I also have one or two ideas bouncing around in my head that I want to get written – a horror short story that I have recently found a publishing possibility for (so now I have to write it) and a supernatural/romance/mystery that I have had in the back of my mind for a couple years.
So no more slacking!
