It's been two weeks longer than I proposed, but my blog holiday is over. Why the break? I was too busy. I know, shocker, and not a great way to build a social media platform. But for me it was the right thing to do.
I was stressing myself out about blogging, so much that I wasn't writing good non-fiction or fiction...which is really bad for a full-time writer like me.
What have I been doing? I did keep up with my once-per-week group blog (we've been interviewing published authors...check out the interviews here), catching up with non-fiction - and making more non-fiction contacts. In fact, I sold an article to a new-to-me magazine. Yay! I've also taken a hard look at my fiction writing, and I think I'm moving in the right direction there, too.
Agent Scott Eagan has a good post today about making changes as a writer - not changing your writing area or schedule, but making solid changes to your work post-rejection. It's a good post, check it out here. What I took from the post is what I mentioned above - I'm moving in the right direction.
During my self-imposed blog holiday I've still been writing, but I've also been editing the just-finished WIP. Through those edits, I've seen how my writing has improved over the past couple of years and I've also seen where it hasn't. So I made a list of comments I've gotten from contests and other submissions and made a conscious effort to change those problem areas.
The first two weeks were brutal. The last two? Not easy by any stretch of the imagination, but doable. I like what I'm seeing in my writing now, and I like the changes I've made.
What have you been doing these past few weeks to improve your writing, yourself or your circumstances?
