On spring break and it's a whopping thirty degrees. #springbreakinmichiganfail
I took the last few days and had fun. Driving back home tonight, and then back to the grindstone tomorrow (homework, cleaning, and writing).
I think I find a way to get back into writing accountability (since hemorrhaging $$$ toward my charity hasn't been motivating me). Visiting with my hometown besties this weekend made me realize they are the perfect readers for me since they continuously asked about my writing and dreams and hopes and yeah. One of the friends is a copy editor/news-writer and the other is a Kindle toting YA and fresh adult fiction fanatic. How perfect is that? And the funniest part of all of this is I never thought of asking them before this weekend.
When you're looking for an outside perspective on your writing, do not look so far away. And I think it's important to have IRL friends reading your writing.
The news writer friend made the best comment ever after I said my CP's tell me I go on rants. She said, "Yeah, I remember that from high school. If you paid attention to the first sentence, you'd be able to follow along. But by the end, Jon was ten feet from the original topic." Talk about a freaking epiphany!!!
Let's see how long this mode of motivation pans out.
