I did go ahead and submit the story I finished recently for publication, but I got a pretty quick rejection. Which means I should just submit it again somewhere else, but I’m not really sure where that story might fit, so I have to research places to submit since I haven’t been submitting stories very much at all in the last couple years. Mostly because I haven’t been writing them.
I haven’t been writing much in the last couple weeks either. After all that energy on the one story, I fell off, even though I’ve got one more to finish and another that I just barely started. I need to figure out a better way to get myself sitting and writing. It isn’t that writing is difficult, it’s more the getting myself in the position to actually do it.
If I didn’t have this blog streak alive, I probably wouldn’t get much writing done at all. I mean, it’s good that I’m at least getting blogs written, that keeps me going. But I need to figure out a way to leverage that habit into writing stories.
And I need to figure out the best way to set myself up for success. My home desk isn’t very ergonomic, so I end up getting pretty sore trying to float my wrists in space over the keyboard. I think if I get a little bit of a lift under the keyboard I could do it standing pretty comfortably. I’ll experiment.
And I will try to use this blog to push myself. I’m going to finish one story by next week.
