Sometimes writing is two steps backward, one step sideways, and it's often never in the right direction. But I know I will get to the end of the story if I write every day. And I know I have a critique partner Pam Mantovani who will help along the way.
I'm a crapper-pantser-fixer-upper. A moniker I forever immortalized accidentally during a Southern Magic meeting when I learned I was the 2012 Linda Howard Award of Excellence triple finalist.
My CP can attest to my process. It is kind of scary. However, I do appreciate her sticking with me.
How do you face down your manuscript demons? Got any suggestions to make my writing journey less messy?
