Things are a bit topsy turvy around here this morning. Normally, my girls have late start (school starts an hour later than normal) on Mondays. This gives me an extra hour before they wake up to get things done, like writing blog posts. However, this goes away every year as school starts to wind down. No more late start until October. Sigh. I think I’ll miss that hour over the next two weeks they have left.
I’ve been thinking quite a bit lately about what I’ve learned over the last 17 months since I got my first contract. Things I wish I’d known before I submitted a single story, how to deal with both publishers and other authors, stuff like that. I’m proud of myself that I’ve been able to keep my sense of humor some days!
So, my plan for the next month or so is to do some posts that focus solely on those things I’ve learned/experienced that (I feel) are the most important to relay to anyone else out there wanting to get published. Both the good and the bad.
Also, I’ll be hosting a couple of other Solstice authors here this month. The first guest is tomorrow! Later this month, this blog will be part of a scavenger hunt for another Solstice author.
For today, though, I’ll be moving along. It seems like Monday can be a rather busy day in my world. Maybe I’ll ignore it all and just write. It’s what I’m supposed to do as a author, yes?
