Getting things in order.

When I started this blog (a little more than a week ago) I had planned on having some time to tinker with it and then slowy make my way into having people read it and so on.  But then I won The Speed Date 2 Contest with The Knight Agency (yay!) and that sped up the process a little bit.  And quickly, can I just say how awesome The Knight Agency is for having contests like that? Amazing.

Anyway, I've finally gotten around to getting things how I like them, and I'm sure I'm not done yet.  I feel better though... it feels like it's mine now.  Oh and I have a blog title!  I picked Just Write because that's kind of my motto.  A lot goes into trying to get published but the most important (in my humble, unpublished opinion) thing is to make sure you're writing.  Also, it's what I yell at myself when I get stuck staring at my computer.

This week has been a little hectic in the writing department, mainly because of the contest which took up a lot of my time.  And by "took up a lot of my time" I mean checking and re-checking my e-mail, asking everyone who knows me if they thought I was good enough and then re-checking my e-mail... serious stuff.  So now I'm diving into a few small projects and continuing the work on my current WIP.

I can see the end in sight for my WIP and that's really exciting.  I'm only half way done but I have a clear path now, which is always nice.  I'm a bit of a pantser when I write but around a quarter to a half way in, I can see the path I'm going to take to the end pretty clearly.  If that doesn't happen, I know I have a problem.  Luckily I didn't run into that with this project and I'm hoping to finish the rough draft around the first week in May.

Fingers crossed.

Anyway, I hope everyone (yes, all four of you) enjoy the new look!
