November has been a rough month of writer's insecurity. Worse than I've had in a long time. The doubts and depression knocked me down more times than I can count.
I had two manuscripts being edited by different people. While one was newly written, it wasn't horrific, because my writing has improved a little. But the other manuscript I'd written years and years ago, and the editor threw it back to me with comments, and she was right to do so. I'd spent weeks of self-editing it and recently sent it back to her. I pray its somewhat decent so the editor can do her job and polish it up.
Writing and rewriting sentences, paragraphs, and wanting to scrap the entire project, except, I signed a contract. After pulling out my hair, thoughts of quitting crossed my mind.
I believe a break is in order.
December 7 Question: In terms of your writing career, where do you see yourself five years from now, and what’s your plan to get there?
I have to chuckle at that question because I don't know where I see myself next year.
If a story pops into my head and God willing, I'd be thrilled to have at least one book published every year.
