(Note to self: Do not talk to your mother when you’re frustrated about writing stuff. Because being asked, “So why aren’t you published yet?” does not help.)
I feel like I’m stuck. Like I’m just a little bit away from starting to break through with my writing and I don’t know where to go to get the information I need to make that last little leap.
I’ve had a lot of discussions the last few days where I feel like I actually know as much as I need to know to move forward with this thing. But there’s something possibly missing with my writing itself that I can’t see and I don’t know who to trust to see it.
Or maybe there isn’t anything missing with my writing and it’s ready to go and I’m just not sending it to the right people to get it published.
Maybe those people don’t exist on the traditional paths and I need to step off of them and go direct to readers.
But maybe I suck and if I do go direct I’ll find that out in a very public and very painful way.
I don’t know.
It’s very frustrating.
