Heyday, from dictionary.com, is the stage or period of greatest vigor, strength, success; prime.
Let’s approach this first heyday with all of those, looking toward our individual goals with excitement and a willingness to tackle them!
I went ahead and got to work on a few things this weekend and in turn put two of my writing cohorts to work to critique a couple of first drafts. I worked one day on my contemporary story and one day on the historical. Both were 3-5 pages each, pages I had written a while back. I made some additional changes, trying hard to develop the scenes more and make sure I was showing and not telling. But let me tell you, I love to tell! I wonder, if writing, as compared to fashion, would ever make telling “IN”
I would be so good at that, as I’m sure many of you would be, too.
While working on these stories, I realized two things: 1) I need to do more character development and 2) confirm my plots.
Can I get a big sigh?
Push forward, is the best advice I’ve been given and I pass that along to you. Okay, now it’s your turn. What do you want to accomplish today? What have you already accomplished? Feel free to share anything in between….
