I think it was last week when my friend sent me a text and asked if her daughter could job shadow me Thursday and Friday this week. She wanted to see what an author does. That's nice I'd like to see what an author does, I laughed.
So, yesterday she showed up ready to be educated. By the end of our day today, I felt like I had been educated on what an author was. We spent yesterday going through all the reasons why I decided this profession, how much my starting pay is (kids always laugh when I say $0), and various challenges that one might face an author.
Then today, because I had procrastinated most of the week on a submission, I suggested that we both work on our stories. We both ended our day with 2000 words (I still have 3000 to go before I can submit so I'll put in a few more hours). But the moral of the story is....write.
We talked about writer's block yesterday and today I said, "You know what, writer's block is just an excuse not to write. if you're stuck on one project move over to another, or sit outside and describe a tree but NEVER EVER walk away from a blank screen feeling defeated.
Yep. I learned something! Now to put in those 3000 more words.
A New Identity
What is this blog about? You mean, I'm supposed to have a purpose? Ok, if that's required then my purpose is life.
Better with age...
