Hello fellow writers and readers! I hope you are all keeping safe out there and writing up a storm!
Today I made a huge decision to remove my short stories from my blog. The reason for this is I’ve been reading about publishing, and some publishers won’t consider your work if you’ve published it online. They apparently consider that as “published”, even if it’s on your own blog.
I also decided to take it down because I want to rework Milly’s story to see if I can fit in parts of Ethan’s story into hers, so I have one story instead of two. I did think about this when I was finishing NANOWRIMO and wondered if I could edit both parts and combine them into one book. That would certainly give me enough material for one book. It would be completely reworked, so very different from the version I had written before and during NANOWRIMO last year.
So this will also tick off one of my goals to continue working on Tales of the West, just not in the way I expected. But sometimes, that is what being a writer is, at least for me – part of the excitement of being a writer is not knowing where the road will take you. I guess that’s why I love it so much!
So here’s to the unknown wonders that await us all in our fictional worlds. I hope you are all having fun with your writing. I think that is also a significant part of being a writer and loving what you do.
How are you getting on with your own writing or projects? Do let me know in the comments, dear writers. I’d love to hear about your journey!
