A while back, I made a decision to be a writer. Not "in a few years," not "when I'm published," not "someday."
But I knew I needed a swift boot to the backside to get me moving. Last year, I entered contests, and that was great. Only problem: The first 25 pages of my manuscript are absolutely pristene. The remaining 225 pages suck.
So I'm trying something different this year and ramping it up a couple of notches. I've joined the our chapter's Pot-O-Magic Challenge (see Barb Curry for more info if you want to join us!), I'm taking online classes, and I'm considering a personal pledge of "100/100" (100 words a day for 100 days).
Do you need a kick in the pants? What would do the trick?
