I am waiting as patiently as I can for some feedback about my manuscript. I have handed it out to several family members and a couple of friends, but as yet......nothing!

Should I worry? Are they not emailing with critique because it is so bad that they don't want to upset me? Or are they just really busy and have not yet fully looked at it? I like the second option the best!

Well, with my first finished manuscript waiting for some critique, I am beginning to write another book. The only thing is, I write the first few pages and then either get bored, or have no idea where to go from there. So what ends up happening is I save it and move onto another one. I have done this three times since I finished my manuscript, and I have to say, I am angry with myself about it.

The reason behind starting this blog was for motivation and accountability while writing a book....this I have accomplished, but now I am back to my old habits.  So, as I am waiting for valuable suggestions, I am going to pick up one of the recently started books and will keep going until it is finished.  I, again, will write down my penned pages, and give you a run down of my week in writing.  We, or more I, will start again and complete a manuscript.  I just have to pick which one to go with!!

Maybe I should blame all of my anxiety over critiques, and my lack of motivation while writing on the 'End of the world'.....'Armageddon'.....'Judgement Day'?  However, since May 21st 2011 6pm came and went without a hitch, I really can't blame life as we know it ending, so, here I am safe and sound, and ready to write....again!!

Happy Penning!!
