So far we have five people in for lunch and the reading on April 8.
Or dinner. It might be dinner.
I’m not sure when we are meeting yet. Waiting to hear from the boss. But we do have our venue!
So how has the writing gone for you all?
We are nearly done with our marathon. We have just Friday (today), Saturday, Sunday (if you write on Easter) and Monday.
Will you reach your goal?
Will you reach your secret goal?
It’s a for sure that I will not reach my secret goal, which was start a new book.
But I will finish this novel, and I will do the rewriting of another. And maybe even another one, maybe, if my writing partner can come over and work with me.
That’s what I think right now.
Now, a note to Sue–I saw on Facebook that you are a little nervous about learning more and more and more about writing and how to put all you learn into action.
Remember what John Steinbeck said: “When I face the desolate impossibility of writing 500 pages, a sick sense of failure falls on me, and I know I can never do it. Then gradually, I write one page and then another. One day’s work is all that I can permit myself to contemplate.”
Just one day at a time is what you have to do. One day at a time of learning something new and then seeing how to implement what you have learned, one day at a time of rewriting, one day at a time of whatever you are doing to make yourself the best writer possible.
This really goes to all of us.
One day. ‘Cause that’s how life is, huh?
