A Writer’s Support System
First of all, I apologize for not posting in a while. College has been busy… and I couldn’t think of any good ideas for posts.
As I scroll through my manuscript, I sometimes cringe at my words. I doubt myself, and I wonder if I’ll ever finish my work in progress. I go through highs and lows in motivation–on some days, some hours, I feel like I can write forever; in others, I feel like I’ll never write again.
Until I find critique partners or a critique group, I am depending on a number of writers’ blogs to give me advice and encourage me to keep writing. I will be participating in a challenge to write 100 words for 100 days, which will ensure that I have 10,000 additional words on my manuscript by Christmastime. And, hopefully, I’ll have the willpower to participate in National Novel Writing Month this November. I attended my first WriteOnCon last month and learned so, so much. I believe that challenges and opportunities such as these will push me to add words to my manuscript.
Here are some of the blogs I visit regularly:
Ultimately, I’ve decided I want to write a novel as a personal challenge and although the going may be slow, I will strive to achieve this goal before I graduate from college.
What comprises your support system? Any suggestions for additions to mine?
