This has been my week and weekend: editing. I’m a little behind in finishing this, but for awhile I’ve felt like the book was missing a little something and I finally figured out what that little something is, so I’ve been working that into the novel.
I took a break from editing on Tuesday to attend writer’s group. They critiqued the beginning of the novel that I started during NaNoWriMo 2011. It was my first critique with the group so I was nervous going into it, but I was very pleased with how it went. It was actually hard to work on a different novel than the one critiqued afterward. Critiques inspire me and I always want to work on what was discussed right away! Before writer’s group, I also had a great conversation with Heather regarding Minnesota Mermaids. We’ve been meeting on an almost weekly basis to discuss the business and where we’d like to see it go/what we’d like to see it do. We’re both incredibly excited for what’s to come!
Recently, I’ve been so energized by the writing and art that I’ve been doing. I’m so excited to see what happens with it all! What is energizing you these days?
I think what's been energizing me lately is that I've been doing a lot of nature hiking. I love this time of year because it's perfect hiking weather!
I bet! It's warming up but it's not too hot yet. Hiking sounds wonderful!
