It’s been a month since my last post and I wanted to share with you my writer’s journey over the past month. After my last post, I decided to take a week-long trip to the coast to recharge my batteries and gather inspiration from the sea.
While I was there, I was able to make significant progress on my novel by going through most of the revisions. I’m happy to report that from chapter 28, there is very little left to do to reach the end. Additionally, I’ve been focusing all of my attention on my first short story collection, which is in the final stages of revisions before I self-publish.
My goal for this year is to finish my short story collection, and anything else that comes after that will be a bonus. However, I want to be transparent with my readers and let you know that I’ve been lacking in my weekly short story posts. The truth is, blogging is not a sustainable way for me to make a living with my words. That’s why I’ve decided to take a break from fiction blogging until I can afford my basic needs through my writing.
I want to take a moment to express my appreciation for all of the authors out there who are sharing their work online. Your words are a constant source of inspiration for me. I’m always reading and I hope to continue commenting on other bloggers’ work in the future.
As we enter into a new year, I hope that all of our dreams come true and that I’ll finally be able to make a living with my words. Because for a writer, there’s no better way to live than by writing.
