So far, I have kept my promise to myself to keep a streak. For the past ten days, I have written at least 500 words every day. So I have a ten day streak and a one week streak. Hooray!
I’m working on a novel right now and I’m having difficulty working on it. I still manage to squeak out the minimum. I just started a new short story today. I don’t want to say too much about it as it will probably be a submission for Writers of the Future. I’m experimenting with a few things and focusing as much as possible on show, don’t tell.
Speaking of Writers of the Future. The final batch of Honorable Mentions were posted today. I was on it as a Silver HM. I know I should be happy about it, but after five or six HMs, I can only get so excited. I’m still waiting for that magical phone call. K.D., Joni? Are you reading this? I WILL GET THAT PHONE CALL. That or I’m just going to have to disqualify myself by publishing all my other stories.
One of my goals this year was to get 100 rejections. I currently sit at 22 (give or take a few). I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me. Until then, off to bed I go.
