I have 54 pages left to read from Zizkov, before I sit down for the POV re-write.
I sound like I’m going to be in some monster truck rally. GET REEEEADY FOR THE POV RE-WRITE- IT”S PURE MAYHEM! MONSTER RE-WRITE MADNESS. God. Anyway, before I loose track on this post, where was I? Yes, 54 pages of Zizkov left to read and then draft number 4, I think. I’m pretty excited to write the new perspective. I mean, I’ve only mentioned it in three different blog posts. Right now as I read it and imagine the new perspective the words hilarious genius keep coming to mind.
I’ve been so good lately at dedicating my time to writing. I’ve worked on the other 2 blogs and everyday I read some of Zizkov. This doesn’t mean my mind has stopped arguing with me and saying things like, “I don’t feel like writing,” or “but I’ve been sitting all day, i don’t want to write.” I do a little yoga first to bring my energy back so I can sit my butt in a chair-again. I do think I want to just do the 2 day thing with the re-write. Its all about keeping the flow. Oh what a crazy weekend I’m going to have, all written an’shit. I know I want to be a writer, but sometimes I think my life may be just a tad boring. Ah, well. I don’t care, it will go up again. Its always up and down up and down.
Couple of other things. I checked out LUV YA‘s latest post as I haven’t visited her in some time. She posted the first chapter of a line by line contest. I think she blogged on some earlier pages before I started reading her about the contest, but it sounds like it was fun. You can check out her first chapter on her blog. Bria does a weekly publishing round up which links to many other people in the writing world. Two of my favorite so far are Nathan Bransford and Janet Reid. I especially like the way Nathan comes across in his posts. One thing that gets me is how much these people read. Not just queries and books, but blogs and articles and journals, essays, my god. I get so overwhelmed when I think of the other side of the coin. I don’t really want to do it, but I want to be published so I have to do it right? E-gads, this is the stuff that made me leave theatre, I suck at the audition. Nathan and Janet are good sources in the sense that they really seem to want to help writers. (I think I forgot to mention that they are agents.) I haven’t been in the “business’ so I don’t know what’s good or bad or what people are being so negative or positive about, and I’m not sure if I ever will, but those two seem to know what they are talking about, and like I said, they have the kind of voices that seem genuine, and that they really do care about writing as a craft, and the writers as artist, craftspeople or however you want to compliment.
I was always lucky in my bad luck.
