Just keep writing...

Well, I'm still struggling, but at least my web serial was updated. Late, but it was updated. I'm trying to get myself to plot and plan but man, its rough. I do need to, at least, know where everything is and what races I'm dealing with. Oh, and where there are dragons.

I know I need all of that, but I find this part hard. I like to just get in there and write. But, as the class from AutoCrit has shown me, that's why I have issues with endings. I'm hoping that this time, I can end things well if I at least try plotting it out.

I got another couple of rejections on Dark Ember. Man, this is so rough. I really like this book, I love the story. I just don't know that anyone else does. At what point do I need to give up or self-publish? I don't really have the time to promote and all of that, not with a full time day job. Not to mention finding an editor, a copy editor, and a cover designer. I'm not sure I can afford it.

I don't know. I'm still kind of on the fence about the whole thing. I just want to keep writing. The self-doubt I was so free of for a few weeks has totally returned. Ugh. I was having such a good time without it.

Well, hopefully I'll get some writing done this weekend. Taking a short break today. Vacation is coming up and I'm stooooked for some time off of work. Hoping I can get my worldbuilding done! We're resting at home and doing some fun things nearby like the zoo, Crayola Experience, Sea Life, ya know. Stuff we never get to do as a young family with two incomes.

I also want to write. Yes. Hopefully that'll happen. I intend to continue getting up at 4am during my vacation, so we'll see what happens.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
