I almost forgot to do AYWN this month. Well, I did forget. The past couple of weeks my motivation to write has been in the gutter. My problem is I'm feeling down about my writing. I'm trying to figure out what to do to get noticed and nothing seems to be working. Very depressing. I do have some good news though. I achieved all of last months goals. Snapshots is published, I finished rewriting the second Path of Angels book, read through Being Vampire and even started editing it, and I read three books for Marie's Canadian Reading Challenge. Now I need new goals.
First goal: Stay positive. Writing takes time and so does selling books. Maybe I need a mantra.
Second goal is work on rewriting Being Vampire. I rewrote part one already. Three more parts to go. I also need to title the parts. Titling stuff is so hard too. You'd think I could come up with a dozen title ideas, but nope.
Third goal: Get second Influence short, Balance of Love, published and listed as free. Just waiting on some thoughts from MB and maybe a couple more read throughs to spot typos. I also need to do a cover for it. If I don't get it published by the end of the month I at least want it 99% ready to be published.
Fourth goal is new. MB linked me up to requests for submissions for an anthology called Defy the Dark. It looks interesting and I have an idea for it so I'm going to attempt it. I have a few months before the deadline, so this goal will probably roll over a couple of times. **Edit** Defy the Dark deadline is Sept 1st. Oops. Better get cracking.
