It’s been two weeks since the start of Camp NaNoWriMo, and I’m exhausted and excited (again). It’s had it’s ups and downs, and I’m excited to see what’s to come!
There’s been something weighing on me lately, and I finally decided to do something about it. New Adult is a genre that is beginning to flourish, but the writers are a bit scattered, and the resources for those writers aren’t as great as they could be. When looking at other genres and audiences, there are a plethora of places for those writers to go for resources, help, announcements, and more. So, I would like to introduce you to something I am excited to start: New Adult Writers Union.
I think one of the biggest things I struggle with as a writer is first writing for myself before anyone else! When you want to make a career out of writing, sometimes even writing the first draft will become consumed with thoughts like, will this be good enough? While every piece of writing advice is subjective, and no two writers are the same, perhaps if you’re floating along in the same boat as I am, you’ll find some comfort in my words ahead!
With the incoming of a new year, many people are writing down their goals for 2018. Goals can be a beautiful thing, as long as we make sure they’re reasonable. I want you, my followers and readers, to hold me accountable for my writing goals. I’ve always made it goal to be transparent about my aspirations.
