It's been a little while since I last posted. I haven't really been feeling in the zone of late, I was full of cold last week and couldn't concentrate on anything. Coupled with my increasing unhappiness in my job, I really haven't been feeling particularly creative.
Still, I've come out the other side of the germs with a renewed determination to get some work done. I made a promise to myself at the beginning of the year that I would start taking my writing seriously, and that I would get at least one thing published in the next twelve months. I have entered a couple of competitions so I've already made some progress.
For some reason I had it in my head that once I'd submitted a story to a competition that story was then useless in terms of submission. But of course, unless it wins anything, after a certain period I am free to do something else with it.
So, I plan to rework a ghost story I sent off in October and look for somewhere else to send it. I also sent a love story to a competition earlier this month, which didn't get anywhere, but there is to be some feedback on all entries. Once I've had this I can rework it and resubmit it as well.
So all in all, I actually have started making gradual process. Now I have realised this my motivation and confidence has boosted enough for me to pick up and carry on in earnest.
Watch this space, I could be bringing you news of a success at some point in the future. Fingers crossed!
Until next time,
