IWSG: Real Life is SO Distracting!
"The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs."
YIKES. If ever I've fit the definition of an insecure writer, it's this month, and last month!!!
As you may have noticed, I've been distracted lately by my "real life" - - - it's been so busy; I've not kept up with my blog posts or my WIP.
I bought a book on time management, but I've haven't found the time to read it yet. *sigh*
So ... here's a quote to get you by for the next couple of days:
"Shift your thinking to the less-sophisticated teen sensibility, phrasing the text so it focuses more on how the events are affecting the protagonist than the other characters involved ... use quick judgment and action, letting the chips fall where they may" - - Deborah Halverson (WRITING YA FICTION FOR DUMMIES, p. 161).
Friday, I will feature an exerpt from:
Victoria Jackson and Ali Guthy, authors of Saving Each Other: A Mystery Illness, A Search for the Cure, A Mother-Daughter Love Story
