You may have noticed that I’ve been missing in action for a few weeks – but with good reason. I have been working almost daily on polishing my novel. I have even found some readers to provide editing and feedback before I start sending out my manuscript to publishers (with fingers crossed and a bottle of wine for good measure). Though my little baby MJ keeps me quite busy these days, I am finding a rhythm now that she is almost 6 months old…and it includes my writing, reading and even attending a writer’s festival event here in Ottawa (more on that soon).
In the meantime, I found this cute list of “Writing Rules” – since aspiring authors seem to be always looking for tips. The most important advice is always to WRITE SOMETHING. I found over time as a writer that inspiration and opportunity do not always intersect. Sometimes one must make time for an opportunity to write. Then write. And allow inspiration in.
