This last November, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend Austin’s Comic Convention. Gosh, I love that place. Anyway, one of the artists in attendance was Peter S. Beagle. Now, some of you may not know who that is. He is one of the authors that piqued my interest in fantasy books. That particular day, I got to the Con fairly early and was able to have a good chat with him about several things that I’ve always wanted to ask authors I admire. He gave me a lot of good advice and was extremely conversational and easy to talk to. I’m going to share with you something he told me.
With this sage advice in mind, we come to my Pre-New-Year’s Resolution. I really need to get back into the habit of writing. I have written anything (besides blogs) in a long, long time. So, my goal is to write 1,000 words a day. This doesn’t include my blog entries which will let you know how horribly I am doing at this endeavor. For the record, this is a lot harder than I thought it would be. I’ve written a lot, and I feel like the thoughts in my head are finally coming together in a way that makes sense. At the moment, I am struggling at 963 words. That’s mostly because I was supposed to be in bed 3 hours ago. Fail.
Alright, I made it to 1,014 words. Need to go to bed. We’ll see how tomorrow goes. Wish me luck in my insanity!
