I have made an amazing discovering of the past few months. The writing community is awesome.
Some of your probably think, duh, you just are realizing that now?
But I have ventured into new territory. Before I mainly focused on this blog and trying to write for magazines, both online and print. I have gone back to my true passion – fiction. And if you know me at all, you know that I am impatient. I see people say that they are so excited that they got a book deal but the book won’t be out until October. What? Really? I mean it’s exciting that they are having a book published, but I would die waiting that long.
I also like to have control over my projects, the cover, etc. So, I am probably going to venture into the world of self-publishing. It’s scary and a lot of work, but I am excited.
In this little journey, I have started to make some awesome friends with other authors. Yesterday was one of the most productive of my writing thanks to writing sprints one author kept post on Facebook. Then I started chatting with another author that also works a day job while trying to start her writing career. Today we are cracking the whip in each other to make sure we get writing done.
I love the support. It’s amazing. And the friendships. And the laughs.
The optional prompt for today was “It’s like going to…” but I have been thinking about this since last night, so I had to get it out. For more Stream of Consciousness Sunday, head on over Jana’s Thinking Place.
