The whole writing thing...

Just a hodgepodge because I feel like venting and don't want to put this on my xanga.

I started reading a great little book called Pen on Fire. The first assignment is to write a letter to a friend who thinks she's not a writer. Surprise, surprise, the next assignment is to write a letter to yourself for the same reason. Guess what? I encourage one of my best friends ALL THE TIME to write, yet when it all goes down, I feel the same as she does. I need the encouragement that I wrote to myself.

I've been spending this evening looking at websites of freelance writers, wondering what the heck my problem is that I am not doing it too.

Also, here on Blogger I have gotten into the 13 Journals Project. The link is: http://13travelingjournalsproject.blogspot.com/ I am excited about this and the hamster is running on the wheel in my brain to gather ideas.

I had a writer's group meeting today. Got an "eh" response on my piece. I know why. It was unfocused and random. A draft, certainly, but not that great.
