Why do you do what you do? It sounds like a complicated question, but it’s simple. I write because I love it.
Every time I submit a manuscript and on both of my release days, I seem to ask why I keep putting myself through this, lol There were some things that were easier on this release day simply because I had a better idea of what to expect, but many others went just the same.
I still don’t really know what I’m doing and I seem to be moving forward one stumble at at time. But, with each step on this lonely writing journey, I solidify one fact.
I love to write.
At this point in my career, it’s the very thing I must posses to keep me going. I love my characters. I’m proud of my stories and I desperately want to put more of them out there.
So, that’s it. I’ve passed the latest test and it’s my good reason why I put myself through this crazy train.
The Goals – week-9 results
- Spend at least 1-hour a day with my characters- not done.
- Daily progress in writing craft, word count, editing, and/or plotting- half done. The only writing I did this week was guest post writing. I also did all kinds of marketing or attempted to for my release. These activities kind of sucked all the life out of me.
- Take care of and be kind to myself- half done. The week started out with a few workouts, but quickly deteriorated into release day haze.
