Hi all! I just want to check if anyone is interested in guest posting on the Fridays after June. The dates are wide open, but no-one seems to be biting. I'd love to have some more guests, so if you want to write a guest post about anything related to writing and/or the literary world, plug your book, anything, please follow my blog and let me know that you're interested in booking a slot. My e-mail address is mishagericke(AT)gmail(DOT) com.
So yeah... I am about to enter the last week before my break from writing is over and, while it was lots of fun to do nothing for a while, I'm now starting to feel the stirrings of that old, annoying niggle.
Very bored. My mind has already started working on new ideas as well as for ways to improve Doorways. Now my hands are itching to get back to writing.
To me that means that now is a good time to do nothing.
Yep, you heard me. Nothing. It's just stirring. I don't care for stirrings. They wane and fade almost as soon as I start to address them.
No, I want to feel a rush when I touch my work. I want to feel that I can't wait until I spend some time on ideas both old and new. So... more word fasting for me, at least until the end of the month.
In the mean time I've picked up two writing books, one about writing in general, the other about revising. I'm thinking about starting in on the latter. After all, Doorways is my priority.
So that's me, feeling the urge to return to my writing, but resisting and distracting myself with other shiny things.
What are you up to? How's your writing going? Have you ever taken a break after finishing a draft?
Also, I'd love to know if you guys want for me to share some of the things I learned from the two books I mentioned?
Dying to know.
