  1. So that’s where you’ve been. I’ve been searching for you since i’ve been back online. So glad we are still connected. I’m going to post this over to a Google Plus community. I hope to see you over there too.

  2. Welcome back, Erin. Missed ya! I have to admit that short story, let alone, novel writing is one of the challenges I gave myself in 2013 that I have not been able to even scratch. I will try harder!

    • Thank you!! :) I needed some mental down-time when the semester ended. On your writing goal, you might try writing a little bit each morning when you first wake up–just fifteen minutes a day or so–and work up to more. Here’s to meeting that goal in 2014!

  3. Thanks for sharing Erin. Those are simple but yet tough lessons. It’s hard to make your self feel it all the time. Heck, it’s hard enough just to sit at the computer!

    • Ain’t that the truth, Sister. OMG. I am having panic that I won’t be able to “feel” it at all anymore without someone there to guide me. *grimace* I’m hoping to walk away from residency inspired to write, write, write. :)

  4. Hi Erin, I really like your blog. I discovered it when Google led me to your post about writing a pitch for your novel– very informative, thank you! I appreciate this post as well. I’d been toying with the idea of writing down some of the tips and strategies I’ve tried this year, and your blog gave me the motivation to finally do it. Check it out if you’re interested and have a great day!

  5. Good advice. I find I write better when I just write and not worry about mistakes or how the sentence sounds. Just go back and fix it later, but if I try to focus too much on making it perfect right then and there, I find I can’t really write what I was trying to say.
