Break’s over

Ok, I’ve not been writing, or posting on my blog, or even thinking much in the last month.  I was able to get some advice from a former editor, an insider in the business.  I’m so grateful for the wake up call.  

 

I realize that a lot of the work I’ve done has been nothing more than me spinning my wheels in the mud.  I’ve learned a lot about the process of writing, and I’ve done some good work.  That being said, I’ve done nothing that I can sell.  I’ve been trying to climb Everest as a first summit attempt.  I need to dial back my goals while dialing up my commitment.  

 

I have written and edited the first draft of a novel.  Someday I may be able to come back to that.  But for now it is being laid to rest.  I intend to concentrate on shorter works.  Don’t think you can run a marathon when you can’t even walk yet.
