Where I am in the writing process: I've finished one manuscript and am working on my 2nd one. I've put manuscript #1 to the side after no takers, but will be taking another look later on this year.
My current problems: Having the energy to write after a hard day at work, or when I'm too tired and pooped to write. Or sometimes, I'm too wrapped up in life's problems, that I'm not thinking about writing, which is weird cos writing's usually my therapy. Honestly, I've been feeling really blah lately, you know? All of my writing have suffered this week, even my blog writing. Never fear, tho. I'm determined to get back on track!
Question this week: Would you be disappointed if 5 years from now you still wrote 500 words everyday and weren't published? What then?
My Answer: I love writing and will keep doing it, whether I'm published or not, for as long as I can. BUT, I think, if 5 years passed and I still wasn't published, I'd be a little disappointed. Not enough to stop writing and give up, tho. I mean, I've been writing, as a career, for a little over 5 years now and I'm still not published. Yes, I'm a little disappointed, but I don't let that keep me from writing. It's like I have to write, published or not. My world's not right if I don't write (hence this week being a difficult week for me).
What about you?
