Good Effort, Misdirected


This morning I have egg on my face. It’s not like I can secretly wipe it off, slink away, and act like it never happened. Noooo. I actively solicited some of you to vote for a story segment I wrote.

After I started my writing campaign, I heard from JK Bradley. It seems I misunderstood his intention, though he admits that his description was subject to interpretation. He corrected the part that I misinterpreted. To make me feel better, I think, he gave me some positive feedback about the piece I wrote. (As did some of you — thanks from the bottom of my heart. x0x0)

It’s like I said in my bio: “Sometimes I’ll trip up. Other times I’ll make a big splash..” This time I tripped up, making a big splash — a whopping belly flop.

So, with that said, let me point you, especially if you have hit a dry spot in your writing, to The Bradley Chronicles, where JK Bradley is hosting a writing exercise to help stagnant writers to get back on track with writing. Check yesterday’s post for the link.

Thanks for loving me in spite of myself. The good news: my mistake yielded about 450 written words. Why is it, then,  I am having such trouble buckling down to real work on the novel?

  1. Just saw your comment on my blog from yesterday. Not sure if you still need me to vote? But as you say, getting 450 words written is a good thing, mistake or not. 🙂
