Sorry, but I have nothing new to report on getting a literary agent to represent my first novel, Art and Soul. I’m still waiting for further responses to my first round of submissions.
In the meantime I am facing down the blank page, adding words to my second novel in smaller bursts that I would like. This week has been unusually busy, but I did want to write more. Damn the procrastination monsters. When they team up with the exhaustion monsters they are formidable opponents.
I’m still fighting to hit my JuNoWriMo 2015 challenge target. I knew I’d never complete 50,000 words in a month (unless my toddler decided to become fully independent!), so I set myself a more realistic goal of 30,000 words in 30 days.
And though I’m a couple of thousand words behind, I’m all for celebrating small victories, preferably with a badge and a large piece of cake:
If you’re writing and/or taking part in a writing challenge, I hope it’s going well and you’re winning the good fight against your procrastination monsters.
