It's IWSG time!
Every month on the first Wednesday.... okay, this month it's a Tuesday, but even us writers aren't about to give up our 4th of July... writers come together to offer support, advice, encouragement or simply to shed our frustrations and woes with each other. Writing is a tough journey, and we don't have to do it alone.
Thanks goes to the brain behind this group, Alex J. Cavanaugh! If you want to join in or find out more (because there is so much more to this group) then head on over here.
Special thanks goes to this month's helpers: Nicki Elson, Juneta Key,Tamara Narayan, and Patricia Lynne!
This month's question is. . .
What are your ultimate writing goals, and how have they changed over time (if at all)?
Has this changed over time? Nope. Not really.
For me, my writing journey feels like steps up a ladder.
Small articles published - 1st step.
Short stories published - 2nd step.
Novella thingy published - 3rd step.
And now, I'm carefully sliding onto step number 4 with my debut novel coming next year (February 5th from Dancing Lemur Press).
It's a fantasy / darker fairy tale for ages 9 to 12.
And I have a tagline now!!!
"I only desire your talent..."
Each of these steps feels like another rung up to the main goal, and each one is just as hard if not harder than the last. Hmmm... I wonder if there ever will be a last rung or if it goes on and on and on and on.
What about you? What are your writing goals? Or do you even have any???
