writers share

Let’s Get Published is community of writers, and we’d love to get a conversation going. That’s why we’ll be posting a Writers Share every now and then to keep a pulse on the writers working their wordly magic all over the world.

Today we want to know about what you’re working on right now.

Tell us about yourself and your work-in-progress by responding by email, leaving a comment, or posting on our Facebook page.

Tag or share with your writing friends so they can join too.

5. What are you struggling with?

As for me, I’m in the middle of Richard Thomas’s Contemporary Dark Fiction Class. Since the beginning of September, I have finished 8 short pieces of fiction, two 3,500-word short stories, and 2 essays analyzing books we read for the class. I have crammed more short fiction writing in the last two months than I can believe.

Yes, my brain hurts, but I’ve realized that I can make things happen even when I’m pressed for time and feeling uninspired.

I also feel empowered. I used to wonder why my work is not getting accepted. Rejection letters rarely come with an in-depth report about what’s not working in a manuscript. It’s a writer’s job to know that themselves. This class is teaching me the secret language of good writing (there is a language under the language).

Of course, now I want to take down everything I’ve ever written and rewrite it.

Ah, the writer’s life!
