“One must first write badly in order to write good”
I’ve been taking that to heart this month as I prep for NaNoWriMo in the upcoming weeks.
I’ve also been sitting aside a reasonable amount of funds to help network myself as a writer and novelist. Granted, the most important thing needed to be a successful writer is plenty of “material” for people to want to read and to purchase. So me sitting here with only one published novel so far isn’t really helping my cause any… But things are in the works (shh).
But along with building my personal shelf of written works, I’m also taking the initiative to find a few writing classes and plan on getting a little more serious about all that is involved in the writing business. Besides making up interesting stories of course 😉
And I’m working on getting a few short stories completed and ready to start submitting to magazines 🙂
Yes, your girl has taken to promising herself one short story submission a month to a magazine or newspaper. Something little and simple, for when my novel is getting to cluttered and confusing, and I’m in need of a mental break from that world.
The tale end of this year is starting to shape up rather nicely for me, I’m both eager and excited for what the next few months has to bring.
