This year has been trying on my will-power as a writer. I know we all have our insecurities, and struggles on this journey and that is how the field is weeded out and narrowed down. IMO, anyways.
I have gotten little writing done this year-well that’s not true. I wrote a lot accumulated, just like a gazillion different projects. Two are 90% done, my goal for the first two months of the year is to finish the first draft of those.
Even though I didn't accomplished as much writing this year as I would have liked, it was a tremendous year for learning about the writing world and communities! I found a critique website, which is where i found my very first CP! I entered a contest, (didn't win,) But i did find another website dedicated to the writing community and putting writers together. http://cpseek.com/index.php
On twitter I found a bunch of new writerly types, it’s all kinds of good fun! Then I saw all these awesome critique groups that given themselves cool names and seem to have all kinds of fun and stuff. I got to thinking i want a good group of CP's! I've read somewhere there finding CP's is like dating, you go through a few to find the right ones.
I adore the one I have-which I am grateful that I found such an awesome first one. But I figure a couple more eyes one the MS wouldn't hurt. So in a long round-about way I am saying this is more of a personal ad for CP's. Here we go with the personal ad stuff.
Me- I am a mother of three kids ranging from seven to four. I'm youngish-oldish (27) I'm wife to a badass guy-he's all lovey and supportive and stuff-
I am very sarcastic- like 98% of the time.
I say what’s on my mind too often-which has caused some seriously awkward social situations.
I never say things to be mean-if they are taken that way just know that was never my intention.
I joke when I am uncomfortable. (They're usually awkward jokes that only I laugh at.)
I swear a lot more than I would like to admit to.
One of my favorite authors is Richelle Mead
I loved The Hunger Games
Twilight (Please don't throw tomatoes!)
All of V.C Andrews books
The entire One for The Money series
Anything by Janet Evanovich- seriously-she's freaking awesome!
I love movies like-
Scary Movie- all of them
Underworld (Are you seeing a theme here?)
I love all music- but lean more towards Rock on a daily bases.
Joan Jett is seriously my idol and a genuine badass. (I also like the word badass, but am picky about who i call that.)
I'm pretty infatuated with Johnny Depp. Mmmmmm.
If any of that sounds about up your alley you need help- kidding- please comment here or send along a message. We can do an interviewish chat and maybe do a sample chapter crit or something!
Happy New Years Everyone!!!
