My total for the month now stands at 22,052 words. Had a good day today so hopefully tomorrow will be to and I can get a few more chapters completed.
Number 19 stands out to me as the best one and how true it is. I may only be a blogger and trying to be writer but the people I have met on my journey have been absolutely amazing. There is like an instant connection and the support is amazing, I have never known anything like it anywhere I have worked over the years.
My first ‘meeting‘ of authors was at The Writers Holiday in Wales nearly two years ago, a welcome that was rich in friendship which was to last. I learnt a lot and was given so much advice, enthusiasm and courage to keep going and to never give up. I heard all their stories as no one is as lucky as JK Rowling or can write a book and get publicity like 50 Shades of grey. The struggle and determination definitely makes for a good author even if you do have to publish yourself. Everything is worth it in the end and you just have to keep going, that is what I am now telling myself. It is hard to not fall into a rut or bad habits and sometimes to even keep going but then you have your FaceBook friends, how amazing are they! Apart from my friends and family my Nanny Cool FaceBook friends are all authors most I have never met but will comment, support, give advice and are always there for you. I think writers are the best people on earth and I love all of them.
These flowers are for all the writers out there wherever you are. Xx
I have been thinking today about the writers holiday I am going on at the end of July, I am looking forward to it and meeting more authors. Then I thought about how many authors I am now friends with on FaceBook,Twitter and even on here. That’s a lot of authors and only a very small percentage of the amount that there are out there. I wonder how many there actually are?
I find it a very supporting group of people, I guess that’s because we are all in the same boat, just trying to write a best seller.
So Newport, South Wales is where it is being held, I have never been to that part of Wales before so looking forward to seeing part of it.
I think about writing, stories, plots, characters and poems where ever I am now it’s like my brain never turns off, It then gets frustrating when you cannot just get your pen or computer and just get on with it. Lol. I am now off to do some writing before I forget this character I am piecing together from about five people I know.
