Good morning, lovely people! Can you believe it's the end of August? Where did the month go? I've enjoyed hosting #WipMadness this month and talking about nurturing our creativity.
*Don't forget to check in on Twitter with the #WipMadness hashtag to find out who the September host will be. :D
I don't know about y'all, but after August, I'm calm, focused, balanced, and refreshed. I've pampered my writer's soul in ways I've always dreamed of, this month. I hope you feel some sense of balance and rejuvenation as well.
There's only one thing to do from this point on. It's the heart of what we are as writers. It's what we do. It's the physical act of what #WipMadness is all about.
It's time to get busy, folks! There's no time like the present. Our stories won't write themselves. Pull a chair up to the computer. Break out a notebook. Sit in your big comfy chair with your laptop. All you have to do is write. Fill the blank page before you. And as Natasha Bedingfield so wisely sings, "Today is where your book begins."
I'm so thrilled to be in the beginning stages of a brand new picture book project! (#amwriting while the other one is in the hands of my fabulous agent.) I adore the exhilarating rush of drafting the first words. Developing quirky,yet lovable characters. I love the challenge of creating fun & fresh verbs, chosing spots to mix in a bit of alliteration and similes. For me, those are the joys of writing a PB.
In the comment section, tell us what you're working on. Do you have a new project? If so, what are you most excited about? Read any fantastic books recently? I'd love to hear all your news!
Have a WIP-tabulous week, y'all~
