I spent last week down in Lincoln City, OR, at a master publishing class. It was amazing. I learned so much. My brain was full after just a couple of days. My “To Do” list is far, far too long at this point. I need to schedule things out for a couple of years–yes, that’s how much there is for me to do, in my spare time, in addition to writing.
As y’all may or may not recall, one of my favorite reality TV shows is “So You Think You Can Dance.” Last year, Cyrus gave me one of my favorite quotes, There’s a new level of hard that I ain’t learned yet.
I feel as though this workshop gave me something similar, only it’s, There’s a whole new level of serious that I ain’t done yet.
I had a series of talks with my inner writer at the workshop, as well as during the drive home. She was pretty adamant that I need to take this shit seriously. And she gave me a few examples of places where I haven’t been.
I thought I was serious about the writing and my writing career. But there’s a whole new level of serious that I’m just starting.
I cannot tell you how excited I am about all of it.
