Thanks for so many great ideas! I'll be working on trying to implement some of them in the future. Jeanette Levellie offered an excellent reminder: the more bells and whistles we have the longer our pages take to load, especially for those with dial-up.
To sum up our week talking about contest results, check out this article Making Sense of Contest Results on Keli Gwyn's blog.
And finally, I really enjoyed reading Janna Qualman's blog post this week It's My Path. I loved the simple way she summed up the writing journey by saying that we have to step back and look at what's best for each of us individually without comparing our steps to others.
No matter where we're at on the writing journey, we'll be tempted to compare. Whether we're a young aspiring writer, newly agented, or even a published author, we all struggle with the comparison game. Believe it or not, even though I had one of my best weeks yet as a writer, I still found myself comparing and consequently feeling discouraged!
I have to remind myself that I'm on this writing path because ultimately I love writing, that I'd still write even if I was the only one.
Let's encourage one another today. Ultimately why do you write? And do you have anything to share that might encourage us all to keep on persevering?
Have a great Memorial Weekend! See you next Tuesday!
