Wednesday, December 01
Hello everyone. Sorry for the silence and for today’s late start. I was having trouble trying to figure out what I wanted to write about. One thing I want to talk about is that I will be returning to the Sunday and Wednesday writing days. I know there is no way I can write something every day.
As a topic, I thought to do a recap of my NaNoWriMo results but then that would leave a small post. As for those stats, I pushed above 61k words before quitting last night. I will continue to work on my various projects and hope to complete them.
As for the other subject, it came to me today after I met a fellow writer for lunch. The word ‘networking’ came to mind. As a writer, I know I benefit from meeting with fellow writers. It gives me the ‘umpph’ to keep going. Friends may be encouraging but sometimes they do not understand what writing is about.
The looks one gets when s/he talks about the conversations with one’s characters. The eyebrows that rise when one mentions a scene being hijacked by a secondary character.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes, I see that they are looking around to seek out those men in white lab coats carrying a jacket with extra long sleeves that buckle in the back. This tends to stifle my enthusiasm.
Friends sometimes do not have the same enthusiasm about writing as one’s fellow writers do. That is why when I get a chance, I will meet with a fellow writer to talk because they will understand what I am talking about. I always feel pumped up after meeting them.
This is why belonging to a writers’ group can be important for writers. I hope you have someone you can call and talk to, email or chat about your writing that is a fellow writer.
