writing's been slow, but life has not!
In this installment of the series, I'll be talking about first lines and how important they are to starting the writing process.
I may be a pantser, but I still have a process. This first part in the series focuses on my starting point: inspiration.
Back in June 2018, I began posting a fanfiction-turned-original story called Waiting Room to Wattpad. Since then, it has reached over 1 million reads and as of today is part of Wattpad's Paid Stories program!
Here's how two years of writing fanfiction both helped and hindered my writing.
Recently I wrote a synopsis, and the whole process reminded me of how much work writing is. It was so much work, no wonder I needed some self-care.
It's been a little while since my last progress check, so let's see where I'm at with those 2019 goals!
I've gotten back into the swing of submitting recently, and my experiences now have felt a little different than back when I tried for a year of 100 rejections. So I decided to look at the numbers to see - are things different?
Because I can't just have one...
Whoa, I'm halfway there... Whoa-oh, livin' on a prayer!
