I got my edits for my next book last night so I'm under the gun to get them done and sent in. Add to that, I'm going out with my writing friends today for a get together. This has been planned for some time and deadline or no deadline, I'm going. We chat every day online, but seeing them is so much better. We gab and eat and talk writing - and come away with renewed spirit and determination.
In view of the edit deadline, I scrambled last night to get some other work done. So...
Progress: 104 pages critted for writer friend, 2 new pages of my own written, 2 chapters of review book read.
Birthdays: Alfred Lord Tennyson, Paul Claudel, Scott Nearing, Norma Farber, Janet Asimov, Piers Anthony
Tips and Teasers: “What time of day are you at your most creative? Is this when you write? Why or why not? What can you do to make this your writing time?”
Thought for the day: “Read, read, read. Read everything – trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it is good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out the window.” – William Faulkner
