Hit me or something

I need a big kick in the rear! I've got to get some more queries out, and I'm just not doing it.

I've had encouraging responses to my earlier submissions, and need to keep trying!

There's no reason not to, so what's keeping me from it?

  • Fear.

  • Insecurity.

  • The fact that submitting seems to severely hamper my ability to do new writing.

Okay, I guess I do have a few reasons. But they're pretty lame reasons; they shouldn't stop me.

I've used this blog before to get my act in gear. Something about declaring my intentions publically seems to make a difference. So I'm going to see if it helps with the query process.

I will send out more queries. Oh yes. I will send out more queries.*

*Picture Wayne Campbell saying this as he rubs his hands together intently, and you'll know the tone I'm going for here.

Congratulations on finishing your book! I think if a sequel is calling you need to write it! ;)

I am recommitting myself to writing regularly too. Every day. No word count/time/page count just to write every day. Maybe one day I'll finally be where you are.

Be proud of yourself...many people have a dream but are too afraid to work toward it. You are reaching for your dreams. Just keep on reaching and writing. It's meant to be.

Thanks, Penny! Good to hear from you! The best of luck to you with your writing goals.

Doing little bits, regularly, can get you far--I know! :o)
