So I signed up for the fall PPWC Writers Workshop today…it’s on November 3rd.
Here’s my brain, totally fried and running in circles. “Big step! Big step! Are you ready for this? Are you able to handle this? Do you deserve this?”
Well, you know, if writers were totally secure people, we wouldn’t need to get published, wouldn’t need attention, wouldn’t need to show off in front of other people, wouldn’t need to be writers…which means a continuous state of seppuku* for not being a good enough writer, for not having more blog hits, for stacking up rejections, etc.
The truth of November and NaNoWriMo has sunk in; I am now totally slacking off, which has the added benefit of being able to toss aside the Alien Blue revisions, which I didn’t mind as much as the YA revisions, but still, they’re revisions. Ha! I begin your revisions so I may gleefully avoid them!
Hm…I say slacking off, but what I mean is coping with Ray’s birthday and Halloween and parent-teacher conferences and eleventy bajillion documents and and and…
