Hey Heather welcome!
Let us know what you're working on! and your aims re nailing it.
I start my first draft crash tomorrow morning... and oh my... I have not finished my research (somehow, miraculously, will know what it is I will be writing about and what happens to whom by later today), my professor (in middle of low residency MFA) has just asked me to resubmit a paper, I have a volume of poetry to draft for my MFA thesis (do I know a thing about poetry?), in middle of online residency and trying to catch up on
#SFoW, in middle of deep dive on publishing and marketing and it's not pretty, and there's a professional assessment due any day on a short novel I hope to publish which no doubt will come with significant "notes" that make perfect sense and will give me another to do list. The only agent I have is in my head. Breathe K. Breathe. I know I just have to take one thing at a time. And I am damn determined to work as a writer, meaning, eventually earning an income I can live off and support my dependents before my savings run out. (And I am well aware that's a very tall high-risk aspiration). And this crash club is a railing I can hold on to. What matters is this moment. Giving it all. All power to you Heather, Victoria, Karen and Jane, and maybe Holly you are crashing too. Xx
