1. Checked on submission status and was told the manuscript is still under consideration. Yess!
2. Entered the Golden Heart and actually submitted the ms. Yess!
3. Started new ms. and passed first chapter to critique partner. Yess!
4. Joined Jennifer Echols' Public Shame Writing Challenge. Yess!
I know it doesn't look like much, but to go from writing NOTHING to writing SOMETHING has energized and encouraged me.
Is it time for you to take stock too?
