Bloody hell, it's been a while since I've posted with the Insecure Writers Support Group, founded by Mr. Alex J. Cavanaugh the incorrigible supporter of all things bloggery and writery.
Since my last literary selfie, I've finally put WIP #1 (a memoir) to bed. There may be some late-night terrors (editing) in the next few months, but I. Am. Done. (in a happy way.)
I've now switched to fiction. WIP #2 is a thriller (the writing is very, very scary), but I'm having so much fun figuring out what's supposed to happen next.
(One of my sub-heroes won't tell me what he's supposed to do next, so yes, mister, you ARE in a timeout for two chapters.)
It's also helped me realize I'm not so much a Pantser, but more, shall we say, like a Boxers-er.
My goal *was* to have a full, first draft by St. Patrick's Day (any excuse for a celebratory drink... hmmm, not that I need an excuse on Paddy's Day... #Score, but still.)
I won't make that deadline, but hope to finish by the end of summer!! (Come back to visit next month when I choose the exact year :)
|I know!! Let's Dig Our Way to the Mainland!|
My current insecurities revolve around moving next month.
After nearly four years, we're moving to Fairfax Co., VA, and while I know life on the East Coast is going to be a lot of fun (if not a lot of sun), it's going to be hard moving from Hawaii, where field trips to the beach are only complicated by having to choose which beach to visit.
|"Hang on son, we'll boogie-board to Virginia!"|
My blog name will obviously change, and I hope to be able to offer visitors a brand new look later in the spring (of this year!)
All in all, it's going to be an interesting few months!
Sincere THANKS to those who continue to comment and support me through wise words and cheap laughs.
I bow down to your generous and giving spirit, and please know I'm a better writer because of the confidence you bestow -- and the inspiration you offer.
