I’m getting a lot of writing done this year, which is great.
I’m also putting a lot of it out into the world, which is…anxiety-inducing, to say the least. I’m sending out the novel I’ve been working on since 2011 to another batch of agents at the moment. This is sort of its final chance – if I don’t have any success with it this time, I’ll be putting it on the back burner for a couple of years while I focus on pitching my more recent projects.
I’m also going out to perform poetry again tonight. I was really hoping that it would get easier but I still find I’m horribly nervous beforehand!
There’s also a lot of interesting writing competitions with autumn deadlines that I’m excited about, so I’m going to be fairly busy with writing over the next few months. I don’t mind, though, ’cause it’s the only kind of busy I like.
Today I’ve finished yet another draft of my 1970s-set rock star novel and written half the prologue for a competition story, so it’s been a productive day. Tomorrow, on the other hand, will be fairly light on writing as Geth and I have Slimming World in the morning and then a 10k in the evening!
