Starting Over: Back to my Writing Wroots

Hard work can hurt

Good morning all.

It has been a long summer so far and I have been worked to the bone.  And that is before I have a chance to write my novel and cure cancer then get a Pulitzer Prize!

After far too long not writing, it is time to just blog about anything.  I have been ignoring the advice many give me to just write and it is only harming my skills.  When a person wants to be a writer, it is ok to write total crap.  Not every entry has to be the next great American Masterpiece.

A lot has happened.  Fish is growing by leaps and bounds and it has been almost a year since I met Chieh.  In one year I went from having a simple story that was raw and unedited to having an illustration for every page. 

Hellawes has been slowly coming into her own and is a slow work but the more I build the synopsis the more proud I am.  She is my baby that I might not be ready to share for awhile.

And life itself has been busier than ever.  My multitasking skills got put to the test because I am moving this August.  Between work and school my blog took a back seat.  That and I have a growing addiction to a certain book series written by an old friend of mine.

So now what?  Now I dedicate time to just updating my writing.  Part of that includes sending my resume to various writing gigs on Craigslist and dusting off those writing habits.  How will I do it?  By writing anything that comes to mind and by READING.  One of the best ways I have found to be a good writer is to look at what works.  And when Writer’s block comes along for an unwelcome visit, just write anything.  It may be an inspiration later on.

    I think there are a lot of things to consider about re-entering writing after taking a break for awhile. Whenever I don’t write for too long, I feel like I’ll fall into the same plot holes as before.
    Really cool posts you’ve linked here. And wow, you’re hard at work on a lot of different projects. Good luck with them all.
