IWSG December Looking Ahead
HAPPY IWSG DAY!
my writing fears? they come and go and come again, but that’s life,isn’t it? the important thing is we must keep moving forward despite them, until they disappear. this has been a rough year, personally and with my writing, because the personal aspects shadowed my overall outlook about life in general. its hard to write, when you are struggling to find a reason to hope and believe things will get better, especially when it is drawn out longer than expected through time. that is probably my microwave thinking hanging me up there too. working on that. the good news is i have more good days lately than bad days. today i am hopeful.
i did not do november nano this year. i did prep for writing just in case i felt up to it. the surprise is the last day of nano, which was also my birthday, i had a bit of a story epiphany on a story i have been working on all year. i am hoping 2016 will be my writing year.
revision, revision, revision
if you did november nanowrimo and have a novel to revise, i highly recommend trying this free 3 day mini-revision workshop with no obligation. i own the big course and i can say it was one of the best investments in my writing i have ever made. you can learn about it here, free 3 day mini-revision workshop here
heads up, i am a holly lisle affiliate, so if you go through my link and then decide to purchase something i may receive compensation. this workshop is free. you can only get it in the next 7 days. i have posted some promotion post, before iwsg’s post, if you want to check those out. anyway, i thought the free workshop worth mentioning to anyone trying to revise a novel for the first time or twentieth time. holly has many working writer’s as students too, and they have said that this course helped them really tighten up their revision and taught them some new tricks. most students go through her courses more than once, because they do help that much. i know i have, lol. they are not overly simple or easy per say, but they are so worth the effort.
looking forward to 2016
my plans for 2016. finish a novel, write several short stories, publish. read more fiction and writing craft books. i did the goodreads 2015 reading challenge. i pledge to read 60 for the year. i have read 114 books and still reading. what are your writing plans for 2016? how many books have you read this year?
may the force be with you
my birthday was november 30th. i was given star war tickets for december 17th showing in the theaters opening day. yes, one day earlier then predicted. can’t wait, i am so there!
