Writers and their WIP's
This blog covers many things. Society, culture, parenting, love... but at the heart of it, as it is a public journal (web log=blog) , it is about writing. It is a writing exercise, it helps me to connect with writers on the same journey, and it's also a great tool for procrastination. At least for me. :)
In the writing blogesphere, Wednesday is a day where many writers give an update on their WIP's (Works in Progress). Those WIP's taunt us, they haunt us, they nag us and needle us, but we love them.
Today I am taking advantage of this practice. Here is my update. I am finally taking out the first draft of my current work, dusting it off (or thawing it out if you want to use the freezer analogy) so that I can add some things that have been lingering in my brain, and give it a read through before I send it of to my amazing critique people.
This is a scary thing. It wasn't with my first novel. I threw it out into the world like confetti. This one is harder. See, I can't even stop typing this post because I know I have to open it back up now.
Anyway, I am going to be gone for a few days. Working on it, working on it, working on it.
That is my story. And I'm sticking to it, :)
