I joined a challenge to write everyday for the month of May. So far, on day 3, I have written once – twice if you count this very moment. During the midst of signing up for the challenge, I was accepted to write for a company called Chanillo . I submitted a query for a novel that’s been brewing in my head for over 5 years. I did not think they would accept it and I was certain I was right after waiting over a month to hear back. I was wrong. Now, I have promised to write a chapter each month, and now my novel, which would have never happened, and seemed more like fun time, is now work.
That’s good, right? I have such anxiety over the entire thing. I have started writing and had written previously for the novel (*for* as if I work for it – haha), so I am trying to organize those thoughts and write my beginning preface.
I am excited to have been accepted. Especially since I do not always think I am any good at writing as a whole. Sometimes I think I am amazing, and sometimes I think I stink. I suppose all writers feel the same way at some point.
So today marks the beginning of something that could be great. I am excited, scared, and might take up drinking copious amounts of wine to cope. (That’s like two drinks a week for me – watch out, I’m a wild one).
If you would like to check out my future endeavor, as I cannot post any writing to my blog related to the novel, you can check it out HERE. It’s upcoming, so I have not posted my first piece yet. I still have some details to work out.
Thank you all so much. This counts as my 10 minutes, right?
