So what’s going on with me this month?
Well, I’ve decided that although my blogging break is over I’ll continue posting once a month. Don’t know when I’ll revert to posting twice a month so until then I’ll only post every IWSG.
I only have a vague notion of the storyline for my urban fantasy sequel. But my MC’s racked with guilt. And finds herself entangled in an underground railroad-esque conspiracy. NaNoWriMo 2021 is some time away. In the meantime I will focus on editing the first book. Besides, I can always be a rebel again. And continue to edit book 1 for NaNo then put it on the backburner while starting book 2 next year.
September 1 question – How do you define success as a writer? Is it holding your book in your hand? Having a short story published? Making a certain amount of income from your writing?
Hmmm…success is subjective. Success can be anywhere from finally completing a story. Or getting a multi-book/film adaptation deal. Personally, success as a writer is achieving everything between. It’s holding your book in your hand. Having a work published, read and touched your reader’s mind or heart. Of course, who wouldn’t love to make an income from their writing too. But any of these successes can’t be achieved without first putting butt in a chair and start writing.
What’s going on with you this month? Will you be participating in #PitMad tomorrow? Will you be taking part in NaNoWriMo 2021? Decided on what your 2021 NaNo novel will be? How do you define success as a writer?
