Oh Me, Oh My...

Today, as I was organizing my writing folders, I discovered that I have eight unfinished WIPs. Yes count them eight! Holy crap what is a girl to do? When I first began this writing journey I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to come up with enough ideas but now it seems as if I have so many they are overflowing...I'm not complaining about this BTW just sayin. ;)

Anyway, this prompted me to organize my files so that I could get a better understanding of how I wanted to proceed. I made a folder for the all of the unfinished stuff and then updated my submissions spreadsheet. I have subbed three works for publication so far this year. This really amazes me because when I was first starting out I couldn't finish anything. Now I have reached the point where I have enough confidence in something to send it off to be considered for publication. Yay! Yes this excites me.

This is part of the reason I love to write so much. There are so many surprises around every corner and every one of them is essential to my journey. *happy sigh*

Well, I think I've gone on long enough about my revelations in writing. It's time to work on my WIP so I can decrease the number of files in my unfinished folder.


Thanks for stopping by.

And may the surprises continue to come your way. Discovering what you have to work with and the things you have accomplished is always a motivator. Keep Going!

I know the feeling. I currently have 12 unfinished WIPS, 7 in various stages of editing, 2 subbed, and one sale this year. I never know whether to feel excited or overwhelmed by looking at my spreadsheet!

8??? Ouch. That is ummm...a lot. Keep going though. You will get through them eventually and it will feel great when you finally do! I think I only have about 3 I am actively working on now...I can't handle too many more or I begin to act shizo...
