It's a very good feeling to take the time to write, and then have my writing accepted.
I'm now used to working to deadlines, which I love, but I need to write each day and find it difficult to do. It simply doesn't occur to me to write! I haven't developed the habit of writing each day, except online in my Yahoo groups and here on my blog.
I will admit that has helped to hone my writing, but I still need to focus and get my novel written. I think if I take it a chapter at a time, and concentrate on a chapter for my goal, that I will be successful.
