In October of 2011, I wrote a short story untitled but about a "creepy circus."
And one of the parts of writing I devoted myself to working on this year was rewriting and editing my already written stories. And you know? I have quite the collection I want to conquer this year.
And today I took a step in the right direction!
I have written draft number two of my "creepy circus" story (inspired by a suggestion my mom made to write a story with that theme!) and instead of being saved as "creepy circus" it's now saved in my files with the title, "Smoke and Mirrors." I can now venture into the deeper editing and strengthening the story.
I have more stories to go, but I feel good already about the strides towards writing success this year.
What are your writing weaknesses? What work are you doing to strengthen these weaknesses?
