I've been so wrapped up in two major projects (one long-term, one short-term) I forgot to come congratulate everyone! (Plus, I wanted to see my woohoo from Joanne.
I'm thrilled this week. Funny story how this entry came to be written. One day last week, when I was hating the story I really wanted write, I jotted the first two lines of a poem, thinking I'd do something else. Three days later, I looked at them again, turned them into a sentence and just started writing. The voice of "summer" kept interrupting, seriously, like a little demon on my shoulder. So I wrote him in. It was just play, practice, free thought. I had no idea, no plot, no characters. That's what I meant when I said it "wrote itself".
I should just free-think-write more often. They tend to EC.
Anyway, I've procrastinated from my projects too long, but I've missed you.
Big huge CONGRATULATIONS to EVERYONE!!! I wish I would have had time to read more, but I got behind as it is reading the few I managed. I'm humbled to be considered your peer.
