Lately, I've been hearing a challenge from various sources--ya know, one of those times where everyone you turn, someone is basically saying the same thing? So, I've been trying to take the hint to heart to relax, enjoy the writing life, and give myself some room and time to breathe. I realized I'd sort of lost myself in the journey to and through publication, so my mission this fall is to reclaim myself (sounds mildly psychotic, but let's go with it, okay?).
Earlier this week on Facebook, Tyndale editor Karen Watson promoted a blog post by my fellow 7 Hours co-author TRAVIS THRASHER (and seriously--if you haven't read his books, START NOW!). He's been wildly successful with his YA series, SOLITARY TALES.I confess I'd been working on a "Learning to Be" post, but when I read this, I begged Travis to let me share it with you here on NovelRocket!
I hope it will both inspire and challenge you to keep going, to do what you do best--WRITE!
