Happy Friday, writers! Today is a good day and I’m thankful. I’ve been working on proofreading and editing a bunch of my formerly rejected fiction stories and fine tuning selected poems for upcoming contest submissions.
Most of these contests are non fee based and open to those of us who appreciate a financial boost from time to time, on this freelance writing road to acceptance. I hope you find something of interest:
There’s something here for every writer and I know the writer in you can appreciate a good challenge as well as I do. So go at it. Flex your creative writing muscle and take a break from the mind suck that comes from writing your huge book projects.
“Or, is it just me?” 🙂
Here’s your writing inspiration for today:
“If you ever get stuck, ask yourself what happens next, then next, then next. Don’t get an idea for a situation; develop the arc for your story. Pretty much every story goes like this: Someone is complacent, they face a challenge, the challenge nearly beats them, they find a way to conquer the challenge, then emerge changed at the other end.” — Sean Platt
Do you pencil in small writings projects to take a brief hiatus from your huge projects or do you soldier on to completion?
