A very simple IWSG
Happy March! Wow, didn't that one come quick this year?
With a brand new month comes the awesome IWSG!!! For those of you who don't know, this is a writer's support group. A HUGE one with all sorts of possibilities. And this is the monthly post, where us writers get together and share our woes or offer encouragement to those who need it.
Want to know more? Then head on over to the super Alex J. Cavanaugh, the guy who started this whole thing and join in.
Special thanks also goes to this month's co-hosts: Tamara Narayan, Patsy Collins, M.J. Fifield, and Nicohle Christopherson!
This month. . .
I'm simply typing away. Without work, there's no gain.
Isn't that an easy sum up?
As to this month's question:
Have you ever pulled out a really old story and reworked it? Did it work out?
I've pulled out an old story before, but it wasn't 'really' old. It's more of a story that I'd like to get published someday but realize that it still needs work. It's gone through many edits. Gone through querying years ago and got full requests but ended there.
My gut's telling me that it's still missing something, and I've noticed that the gut is often right. Since I'm in no hurry (this isn't a race), I'm letting this particular MS steam and will wait for the right ideas to hit.
It's not like there aren't other. . .tons. . .mountains worth of stories waiting in line.
What about you? Ready to tear up a MS, jump on it and set it on fire? Doing a happy dance about a good story? Wondering if this whole writing thing is worth the time and trouble? Or are you on the edge of your seat, no longer able to take the suspense?
How's the writing world treating you?
