Whew! Now that we've gotten that out of the way, onto the real reason for this post! A few days ago (September 17th, to be exact) I was hit with an idea. Not just any idea, oh no, this idea hit me with a bang! So forceful was the power of this idea that as soon as I got it I immediately e-mailed my critique group to see what they thought about it.
My hands were shaking the entire time I was writing the e-mail, whether from excitement over having finally had a breakthrough after weeks of a writing dry spell, or from fear that my group would hate the idea (in reality, they've been really enthusiastic and supportive, yay for fabulous critique groups!) I have no idea, all I knew was, I hadn't felt that charged up about an idea, or writing, in far too long, so I went with and today, to make it more official and as a way to try and hold myself accountable for my crazy goals, I've created a new page on our blog, dedicated to my journey of writing this new WIP called 45 Days to Done! Here's a description of what DTD is all about:
From September 17-October 31, I will chronicle my journey of writing my current WIP-in 45 days! My goal is to have a 25,000-50,000 word rough draft written by October 31, 2010-Halloween! So wish me luck and hold on tight, spider monkey, it's going to be a bumpy (but fun) ride! :)
So, that said, I hope you all will join me in my crazy pursuit of: A FINISHED ROUGH DRAFT! 'Cause I'm gonna need all the help-and support-I can get! :)
