I'm having a bit of a 'what on earth am I doing and is there really any point?' day today. They do tend to come around at least once a month (funny that!) or more frequently if something pops up as a knock back on the writing front (in which case I wallow for a while and then decide to get over myself and get back on with it).
Until it passes I've decided to take a step back from the ms I'm editing to send off the RNA's New Writers' Scheme
http://www.rna-uk.org/index.php?page=nws In case my current mood leads me to press delete just a little too much (like the whole ms!)
Instead I shall get on with all the boring stuff I've been putting off and come back when I'm able to be a little more objective.
To perk myself up I typed 'Don't give up writing' into google and read some really nice articles. I've put the link to one below:
Jill Smolinski "Don't Give Up On Writing That Novel" http://www.articlecity.com/articles/writing/article_1370.shtml
Right, now I'm off to do the ironing ;-)
