It's time to see how I'm doing with my Writer's Rebel Creed.
This is S. A. Larsen's idea. To see what it's all about, check out her blog.
Regular Writing: I write five to six days a week. Sometimes, a whole paragraph or maybe even a page is the result.
Belief in My Abilities: That varies. I was feeling pretty down for a while. My work just wasn't progressing. Then my YA historical novel won an award, and it sure helped bolster my belief in myself.
Be Fearless to Write Something New: Haha! I'm not sure whether I'm fearless or crazy, but I've started two new stories and keep jotting down notes on another idea when this quiet voice whispered in my ear. I think what he told me is important; I'm not sure how yet.
Trust in the Beauty of Revisions: Let me see. I'm almost finished with revisions on the story I've been working on since 2010. The beauty of this is I hope, hope, hope the manuscript will be ready to go this time.
Better my Marketing Skills: Really need to work on this one.
Give Back to my Writing Community: I try to answer blog posts and comments on Face Book. Twitter still confuses me, but I'm learning. One goal is to get more involved in SCBWI.
Support Other Writers: I've reviewed a few books this past month and have several more lined up to read, and I enjoy doing cover reveals, book blasts, and tours.
Have a super weekend.
