Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I've given myself a self imposed deadline on the first draft of my book... July 31st. I haven't been writing much, so I decided I needed a deadline. I've been trying to write every night and it's been going pretty good. I've written over 3,000 words in the past two weeks which is more than I've written in a while. I'm just under 40,000 words now. Which I think is a major accomplishment. I never dreamt that I would get this far. Even though I know I have a ways to go, I feel like the end is in sight and I'm super excited.
Saturday, I went to my first writer/author conference. It was a small one. It had a bunch of local authors and they had panels on all different subjects. It was very informative and also very exciting for me. I was worried about going alone, but once I got there I had a great time. I learned a few new things, but it was really neat to hear the authors talk about the things that they have gone through and their road to publication. When they asked who in the audience were also writers or aspiring authors, I even raised my hand. (Only half way, but I did raise it.)
Well, I think that's it for now. I have to get to my MS. I hope your week is going great. Anything new or exciting in your life?
