Keep Writing

Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing.
--Bonnie Friedman

I didn't do any writing this weekend, but I talked with a coworker at lunch today and told her about a new idea I have. We talked some more, and I ended up starting a new story tonight. I'm trying not to be so critical during the process. I'm going to write now and analyze later.

I'm rethinking the Barclay Sterling Contest. The contest itself is good, but my goal was to get my work in front of an editor. I will be ready for that someday, but I don't think now is the right time. The other critiques might be nice, but right now I know where I need to improve, so I'm going to focus on writing and strengthening my description. Then I'll reevaluate.

I've read a few chapters of Monica Wood's Description, and I think it's already helpful. I'm noticing things about my writing that I hadn't realized before. It's a start. :)
