Getting Back on Track


Posted by Jodi | Posted in Some spare thoughts from a writer | Posted on 18-01-2018

I have been letting my writing slide lately. With this Flu/Cough that ‘s going around, many times I just want to curl up on the couch. Now that I’m feeling much better, I need to start putting more effort back into my writing. I signed up for and need to follow through on Writers Digest University webinar, “How to Hook an Agent” by Katie Shea Boutillier. So far, what I’ve listened to is fascinating.

As I work through the webinar and rework my query, I will concentrate on getting something I can really work with. I have  been feeling a little negative about the prospect of ever getting published. Part of this may be the Flu, however a lot of it might just be the feedback, or lack there of, that I’ve received over the years. One of my goals this year is to just put time and effort into my writing. The thing that I need to concentrate on is what my writing has given to me. Over the years, in my day jobs, there is always someone else in control. That cannot be said about my writing. When I sit down at the computer, I feel an energy that fills me. The power of becoming a scribe for characters that grow in my imagination has always given me a sense of power and worth.

I’m not sure that I have a great talent for description, although some have told me that I do. There are still so many things that I need to prove to myself about my writing abilities.

Well, feeling better now, I intend on put the effort back into my writing. I have more than a few stories that need work and building. About five of these stories already have a world that makes a most definite bulge in the side of my head.

In my family I have always been the “weird one”. I guess I just need to keep working and building on that.

Time to get back to work on my writing.

Keep the coffee flowing.
