I took a leap this week and submitted my first article to Mormon Mommy Blogs!
I feel rather rejuvenated when it comes to writing. I have been around the old blog for a while reading a bunch of wonderful blogs and thinking to myself, "I can write too. I should start submitting articles instead of just blogging." Not that anything is wrong with blogging, blogging is a great outlet for me to allow my creative juices to start flowing.
I am not going to be complacent anymore when it comes to writing. Like the tweets I see from authors every now and then that say, "Don't bother me, #amwriting" That's where I am right now. I am not going to work on novel type stuff--well from time to time I might, but I am going to focus more on the short stories and article submissions. It is easier for me right now to edit the short story and articles I am going to be turning into magazines and other successful publishers that are interested in my writing.
This decade will be a different decade for me as a writer. I will submit. I will probably get some rejection letters. I will probably get a few acceptances. But overall, for me as a writer, it will be a good experience for me I think.
How do you as a writer get through life? How do you go about challenging yourself?
