I've been a bad blogger--and writer--lately. I admit it, I've been a real disappointment. But I"m trying to turn all that around by getting back into the groove of things.
First, I've been working on Nightlings, moving some chapters around and getting it all beautiful for my new critique group members at CritiqueThisWIP.
Secondly, I've been trying to get some good blog posts going. Okay, so I haven't been so successful at that second part, but, like I said, I'm trying. I blog over at CritiqueThisWIP once a week (which, for a while, was more than enough). But this week, I'm branching out even further and wrote guest blog post for Kayleigh's Kaleidoscope! What's it about, you ask? How I Write (do you see the irony?). What have I realized? That I really love blogging--not to mention writing--so I'm going to make it a point to get my butt back in "the zone".
It hasn't all been easy. I've been feeling down about my writing for a few months now. Nothing comes out right, my grammar skills are annoying me to no end, and my "voice" has been hiding out in a very dark, very quiet place. How are you supposed to write when the cursor just sits there, blinking that irritating I on an otherwise blank screen?! Don't tell me just do it, because I've been tryin' and it just ain't workin'. But that will all be coming to an end. No more putting it off. You may be reading a bunch of crap, but at least I'll be posting again, right?
Don't forget to swing by Kayleigh's Kaleidoscope to see just how crazy a writer I am!
