OPTIONAL Question: What are your favorite and least favorite questions people ask you about your writing?
My favorite question: Can I read your work?
It’s exciting and frightening (even now) and a leap of faith into the abyss. I get mixed reactions which can be hurtful, helpful and depend completely on the reader’s ability to share their thoughts constructively.
Wattpad has helped with this—a lot.
Worst question: Why do you keep going?
The answer is I don’t know.
I’m in the dumps when it comes to my writing. It’s hard to stay positive when the rejections keep coming. All my fault. I’m the one submitting. Anyway, so things have been tough. I keep writing though and that is good.
I’m struggling with my next project big time and don’t expect what I’m working on to go anywhere, but still keep going.
I’m like the mule that sees the carrot and knows it’s a trick. I don’t have the heart to stop. It would make it all too real. And the worst part is then I won’t move forward.
Sorry for being a downer this round. I just can’t help it.
