Megan and me, getting photos taken for our marketing package for our anthology.
There is a list of things that give me satisfaction. Last night, as our new family member, Artemis the kitten, cuddled up to me and purred … I was content to just hold her and listen to her.
Getting an acceptance is another form of satisfaction. (Or even an encouraging rejection with helpful advice.)
Finding the exact word I’ve been seeking.
Spending time with my friends and family.
Meeting my writing goals.
What brings satisfaction to your life?
My writing has taken an about turn. For the next month or so, I am going to work hard at freelancing, to see if I can generate an income stream that way. The WiP novels will be going on the backburner for a while. However, short stories and articles will be pouring out of Lynne’s fingertips.
I was inspired to this by John Birmingham‘s ‘How to Be a Writer: Who smashes deadlines, crushes editors and lives in a solid gold hovercraft’ and by some articles I’ve been reading in back copies of the Queensland Writers Magazine. After all, I’ve been looking for work for years now. Time to take more control of my writing career.
The novels will be finished. I promise. But for a month, I won’t be touching them. After that, they will be delegated time depending on what else is happening.
So tonight, I am working on a nonfiction article for The School Magazine.
Cogpunk Steamscribe – in her alter ego of Lynne Lumsden Green, will be attending CapriCon to discuss Australian Steampunk Authors.
