Day 1…

…and where writing is like a 12-step program.

I met my goal and sort of feel like the leader of a 12-step group. I’m instigating daily writing chat sessions on Romance Divas as well as a couple of encouragement threads and more and more people want to jump onto the bandwagon.

That’s all good. Now I feel like I can’t let them down and I have to keep my end up as well as do some cheerleading and whip-wielding. Something I learned from teaching — good lesson plans and browbeating will only get you so far. The rest is peer pressure. Now I’m sure to have the bulk of this draft done in two weeks.

Gone is the day of the lonely typist in the night. Would Poe and Salinger laugh at us? Aren’t we such together-together monkeys? 🙂
