given up?

Not much to report – I’m currently fighting a nasty crud, so I’m not really doing any writing. I feel as though I’ve given up. I’m not sure where to go next in my revising process so I’ve kinda stalled out. I’ll figure it out because I really really want to publish this book.


writing update

I’m busily plugging away at my Chrolli fanfic. I’m hoping to finish it tomorrow, Sunday at the latest. It’s going pretty well. Not my best writing, but it’s a piece of fanfic so I have to admit my expectations are a bit lower than with my novels. I really just hope that folks enjoy it – that’s all I really want. It’s nice to have a little freedom and just write for the sake of writing rather than worrying if it’s good enough for people to buy. Now that I’m revising my first novel, I realize how much pressure there is for writing for marketability. I’ve enjoyed writing this piece, but I’ll be glad when I’m done and it’s out there for people to enjoy. I have to stop writing now, I’m going a little cross eyed.
