I'm not exactly new to writing since it's what I've wanted to do since I was little, but I find now that the more determined I get to get published...the further away the actual goal feels. I'm not sure if anyone else has felt that way, but I feel lost inside my writing at times. I know I have talent but I also know that I need to hone and work that talent into something wonderful and brilliant.
I could deffinitly use some respectful critisism and I am open to helpful suggestions. If anyone would like to take a look at my works, it would be greatly apprieciated!
I've been working on a couple books now for collectively over a year and a half. I have finished one book and now I am tearing it to peices editing everything that just does not feel right. New plot ideas, characters and all around adventures are being added to the book and though I only have the unedited version up on here, I would love to see some feedback.
I've realized that like alot of other writers I've met, I have an issue with sticking to one specific project. I will start a book, get a new idea and start another right away. I don't consider it unhealthy for my writing because I just assume I need to get all of my ideas out or I will lose them. A gloomy feeling but at least it's progress.
After going to school for what I thought I would love, I've realized that there is nothing that I want more than to be a writer. Nothing will stop me from reaching that goal. Even if I'm terrible at it.10/24/2009 #1
Okay...hard work DOES pay off. You cannot give up. There have been days when I have just flopped on the couch in tears wondering why I even bother anymore. I can wall paper my walls with rejection letters but that only made me try harder and try everything I could think of. after TEN years of writing to agents I FINALLY got accepted and you know what? The hard work is NOT over. It never is. Now I am trying everything in my power to market and up my sales. The hard work pays off and is ALWAYS worth it. Chin up. Don't give up!10/29/2012 #2
