At least I think so.
I'd like to get back into writing, but I think I need someone for a couple of things:
- to nudge me when I'm stuck, or maybe just on the wrong path. I usually have ideas to start a story, but sometimes I am not sure on the branch to take next. Or maybe I even need to back up a bit. Or trash it all!
- to critique my work with more caring than a stranger might
have, but more honesty than someone close.
I think this will be my Round 4 wrap-up. I've been running out of steam, off and on, this year, and now have little more than a small puddle of enthusiasm. I still enjoy writing, and sharing it, but need to figure out some new ways to express myself and get motivated and gather feedback and improve.
We had a nice day yesterday - maybe the last until spring. It was 20C in the sun. We trimmed the perennials and raked up the leaves in the garden - ready for snow now. Not that there is any in the forecast for here, but it will come within a week or so. Along with freezing rain. We have a new LRT system that manages to break down almost every day, in good weather. Commuters will not be happy. Me? I work from home and can walk pretty well anywhere I need to be.
Oh,and we had an election.
FYI - I'll be posting my stories on my Mike Young blog, from now on. Here's a link to this week's story.
