So, after almost 3 months of not writing, I finally started writing last week. I wanted to go slow, no pressure, just to start getting in the daily routine again. Not writing for so long made me lose that spark that got me in front of the screen every single day. And it's a scary thing when you have come to rely on something so much and suddenly, it's gone. Suddenly, my moods were trending toward bad (on good days) and downright homicidal (on bad days). Everyone noticed this. And there was work stress I couldn't handle without writing, so I was a bag of nerves for awhile. So I said, enough's enough. I gotta start somehow. Even if it's just 100 words. Something.
After all, we've shown you some of ours.
It's been nearly three years since our intrepid quartet launched Turtleduck Press with Knight Errant, Hidden Worlds, and Life as a Moving Target. In the seven books, many free stories, and lots of blog posts since, we at Turtleduck Press have learned much and had a great time doing it. Now we're looking to take the next step: TDP is looking for new members. As Kit Campbell mentioned in her blog post, we're excited!
We're a publishing co-op and we're good friends. If you'd like to join our merry band, please have a look at our Call For Submissions.
Good luck, and may the best manuscript win!
Return with your keyboard, or on it!
Did you put your name in the Goblet of Fire?
And other moving and inspirational speeches!
I love to read. I love to curl up in an armchair with a mug of cocoa and an enjoyable book and while away the afternoon in the middle of someone else's adventure.
I'm pretty sure most writers (and bibliophiles of all sorts) do as well. ("I hate books, so I'm going to be a writer," said no one ever.)
That's why I'm so excited that we're opening up for submissions tomorrow!
