Yes, we are midway through the year and I have a few stories that I really like. A few that needs a LOT of help and a few more still rattling around in my brain waiting to get a chance to shine. Problem is, I'm having a hard time finding the time to sit down and let them out :( But I'm not going to let that stop me from participating in Julie Hedlund's wonderful challenge of creating 12 stories in 12 months this year of 2012!
Time may be making it hard to keep up with my monthly manuscript, missed the month of May :( but it has not all been bad!
The time that I have had has been well worth it. :D :D :D My eleven year old niece has taken an interest in writing! :D Her mother said she was inspired from watching me always sitting at the computer typing away on my stories that she decided to sit down and write her own! I'm so excited. I want to keep her enthusiastic about writing. I am thinking of helping her start a story blog to encourage her to keep writing.
So yes, I will keep on keeping on. I will FIND time to sit at my computer or in a chair with a pen in hand and write, write, write. And if there is nothing excitingly creative going on up stairs, I will edit, edit, edit until inspiration comes knocking on my door :D and I will continue to encourage my niece to keep writing too :D
