I’m not going to lie. Things are looking bleak.
What’s your outlook on life? How was your upbringing? Can you give me a comprehensive list of your moral standards by noon? I want to read through them on my lunch break.
I once said something to a friend that rang true for me at the time: “My life may be falling apart around me, but my writing has never been better.”
You did it. You wrote a book. You didn’t just write a good book. You wrote a great book! You had it read by your friends, and they loved it. Your second draft was even better than the first. You had it edited, and the final version is perfection.
So what do you do next? You query literary agents, of course.
It’s not strong enough in either direction to be called “love/hate”. I see the merit to #NaNoWriMo, or “National Novel Writing Month”, but I also see it as a hindrance.
I wasn’t gone too long, but I’m back.
I took a trip to the moral wasteland that is Disney World. It was fun, but I learned nothing from my misadventures.
