In my writing world, I'm mainly focusing on a new MG fantasy novel lately. After finishing up my more established series, I have to admit it has been fun sort of writing in secret. Nobody knows anything about the manuscripts I'm writing or expects them to come out any time soon. It's been very freeing. I have found myself completely okay with writing something that might be complete crap, and just pushing forward anyway. I actually completed a contemporary YA novel about a month ago, and it's floating out there in agents' hands (eeeeek!) but at least nobody is hanging on the edge of book 2 to read it...
Anyway, I guess the point of this post is that it's nice to be pushing forward fearlessly with my writing. I hope you can find that kind of freedom, too! Who cares if the first draft is crap. Get it out.
I'll leave you with an amazingly eye-opening tweet by author Anna Banks that I've been reminding myself of every night:
"Writers, if you commit to writing just 1k words a day this year, you could write four 80k word books by December 31st."
Even one page a day would get you a 365 page book by the end of the year. Let's do this!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
