Please note that Deborah doesn't have a blog that I can link to because she hasn't opened up to it yet . . .
Are you feeling my pain?
N-E-way . . .
My word is open because that's what I need to do. I have a habit, you see, of prediction. When presented with a scenario -- say, sending out a query -- I can "see" everything that will happen, right down to the rejection -- thus "saving" myself from actually having to send out the query. It's fast and easy. Takes two seconds tops and it's no trouble at all. But it isn't getting me very far.
So 2012 is my year of opening up. To all the possibilities: the good, the bad, and the neither here nor there.
Thus far I've opened up to pitching to Entangled in the pitch event we had here recently. Which led to my project being requested.
And I opened up to seeking help with the difficulties I've been having with the writing. Which led me to reading Productive? Prolific? Sign me up! at the Waterworld Mermaids blog, which led me to buying the book The 7 Secrets of the Prolific by Hillary Rettig.
And it's slowly pushing me back on to Twitter, a slipstream if there ever was one.
You can find me there as @EV_Owens, which is the name I've used to self publish two short stories, and the name I am opening up to as I sally forth through 2012.
If you are a dreamer come in. If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar, a hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer. If youre a pretender com sit by my fire, for we have some flax golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!
