Update: I’m soooo relieved that I finished my latest WIP. It’s SUCH a great feeling to at least have the story all on paper and have it off to my first beta reader.
Thoughts: The process doesn’t necessarily get easier every time I write a book, but I have come to be okay with the process. I’ve accepted the down moments and have learned that they will pass. In fact, I even embrace those moments—instead of letting them paralyze me, I let them happen, knowing that there’s an up moment just around the corner.
I’ve also learned to not feel pressure. It doesn’t matter who’s doing what/writing what around you—it’s SO important to write what makes your soul happy—to remember why you started writing in the first place and keep that as your sole motivation.

Inspiration: This past week, I got to hang with the fabulous Jolene Perry AND Cortney Pearson. They both came to town for Storymakers here in Utah (a conference I did not attend, wanting to save up for SCBW LA)—but from the pics I’ve seen, it was a blast!
It’s so refreshing speaking face to face with writer friends—there’s nothing better than writer talk. I think hanging with these gals was the reason I was able to push myself and get those last words of my WIP done!
