It's been fun trying my hand at writing everyday for #MarchMadness. Unfortunately though, life has taken over and I have fallen behind.
I am happy about where I got to. It gave me a new understanding of my abilities as a writer and this is invaluable. Nevertheless, it has shown me that true preparation for a marathon of this kind does require a certain level of training.
I jumped in at the last minute. I didn't have an idea or any sort of direction. Now I have a strong female character that, with time, I can explore.
For now though, I am going to stop. I'll let the other writers continue in the race and I will cheer from the sidelines. I think by watching them, reading their stories, I will learn even more.
And most importantly, I can stop feeling the pressure and get back to feeling the pleasure of writing. That is, after all, my number one reason for writing. I do it to light myself up.
Here are the other March Madness writers. They are still in the race. :)
