Back In Town

The title is a bit misleading, since I really haven't traveled anywhere.   But I was on a leave of absence of sorts from blogging.  I don't know exactly how much I got accomplished, but do we ever get everything done we'd like to?   Probably not.

In any event, you can expect regular posts from me once more.  Thanks to Cassandra Jade, I had the opportunity yesterday to be a guest on her blog and she on mine.  That's a first for me, and to be honest it was both fun and daunting.  Let's face it - blogging on the page of a published author is awesome, but it also left me hoping that my words would be good enough.  Cassandra has a pretty big following (for good reason), and I was hoping to do her page justice.  Judging from the comments though, I guess I didn't do too bad.

I have a four day weekend coming up, and I'm hoping to take at least one of those days and spend it working on revising my short story.   It actually felt good to do some revisions a little while back, because I could see the story becoming clearer.  It's pretty cool when I feel like I'm making good progress on my skills as writer as opposed to feeling completely lost (like how the classes in my Masters degree program have me feeling lately LOL).

This is a short post, but I'll try to put up something more fun tomorrow in celebration of Friday.  As Michelle McLean shows each week, each Friday should be filled with fun.

What writerly things are you going to do this weekend?  Think you can squeeze in a paragraph or two, revise a passage here or there?

My university has a spring break coming up next week, so hopefully I'll get a bit more than a paragraph done. I can never be sure, but optimism is a good thing, right?

Matthew Rush said...

I missed it. I'll have to check out your guest post. Love Michelle's blog!

Today's guest blogger is Emilia Plater!

Eric said...

Misha - Yep, optimism is a great thing. It's what keeps me going all the time.

Matthew - Hope you enjoy it dude. And heck yeah, Michelle is awesome beyond words. I never miss her Friday fun.

You did great on Cassandra's blog!
I intend to write at least two chapters this weekend. Oh, and finish all my guest posts for my blog tour.
