Ready. . . Set . . . Write!

Summer is over. I know, I know, “The sadness is upon us,” as my sister would say. (Use Eeyore’s voice when you read that line for dramatic effect.) You know, Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. However, it’s time to get back into the swing of things and settle down into a routine. The kids are in school, some of us are back in school (I’m in “comma” school) and even the weather is changing.
Let’s blow the dust of the proverbial typewriters, (sounds better than computers) polish up our manuscripts, and query letters until they shine. Let’s find a “good” crit group — you know you need the feedback. You know you want it.
Decide that now is the time for you to take the plunge and enter a writer’s contest. You can do it. You can’t win if you don’t enter. Let us vow to be unafraid when it comes to tackling that synopsis and one-line sentence that explains our entire 80,000-word manuscript and whatever else our editors and publishers need from us.
Let’s stand together, look this enemy in the eye, and declare — I will not be defeated. I will not go down without a fight. I will not back down or give up. I will eat, sleep and breathe the craft. Words will swirl throughout my dreams and consume my every waking thought. I will become a walking, living, breathing, thesaurus. And if I shed a tear, may my tears fill pages that would inspire the masses. And if I be wounded in the battle, I will bleed words until . . . the last edit is complete.
Sooo? Are you with me? Too much? (Sigh) Do I have to take off my writers Captain Encourager super-hero cape now and give back the silver bracelets? Fine. The point is . . . dun, dun, dun, dun; WE are in this together. (Hum, did a semicolon belong in that last sentence?) Writing is a lonely business. But be encouraged. There are a lot of resources out there. We should find them. Utilize them. Then share them. And if anyone has seen my other silver bracelet let me know, I lost one in a battle against the colon versus the semicolon.
Oh, and speaking of writers contests — I found a few. We should enter. No really, we should. Check out the list see if anything interests you. Let me know if you enter. I plan on it.
Keep on doing the write thing children,
