How many of us, in whatever it is we want to do: write, sing, act, dance, study law, start our own business, travel the world, or whatever… never actually do what it is we crave to do?
Not me anymore. I think part of me was afraid others would not like my work. I don’t think my writing is like anyone else. I used to send it off to competitions, but really, I never thought anyone would care for my work.
I went into it with NEGATIVE feelings, so of course I got NEGATIVE results. I probably did not put enough work into each piece. Clearly I am the queen at cranking out work (I finished “Millionaire playboy” story this weekend), but the editing process will be long and hard.
I have been stalling sending All That It Seems out too. No more!! It will see the light of day soon. I don’t know how much more editing I need to do on that thing! My computer is on the fritz, which is the main reason I had to put a pause on that. BUT THAT’S AN EXCUSE!! I need to take to computer to get fixed because sending out my work is TOP PRIORITY. Just like I put myself on a schedule to write, I need to put myself on a schedule to send this out.
Writing out a schedule now….
Oh, and I will start my screenplay soon. I need to work out my characters a bit more. I have a general outline of the plot, but it needs work. I’m actually nervous writing my first screenplay in over a decade. Fingers crossed I write to the best of my ability and someone reads this and actually thinks it makes a great movie.
