Day 7 – WIPtember 2020

Day Seven – Publishing Path

After many conversations with writers of all stages, I feel comfortable saying that most writers who want to get published believe that they want to be traditionally published. This is also true for me, to a point.

I am currently not in receipt of a project that I would consider finished enough to publish on any forum, much less to ship off to a publisher’s office. Additionally, it is (currently) enough for me to just say “I wrote something!” And then move on to the next project.

I have investigated self-publishing via several types of modes but not having breathing work to share is a deterrent. I know that when I get to a good place, I will probably self-publish initially. I have done enough poking around to know that traditional publishing isn’t really what it seems. With that in mind, I’m keeping my options open. Who knows what will be available when I get any of these dozen semi-close projects polished?

#WIPtember v.2020

Welcome to WIPtember. If you’re new to this concept, I’ll give you a little lowdown: prompts, daily ones.

I started this endeavor last year, but never finished. I got completely overrun by NaNo Prep and abandoned ship. But this year, nay nay I say. We shall finish.

So, let’s go. Day One. Seems a little odd to do an intro on *my* blog, when you clearly could click my Bio link, but for the sake of continuity…

WRITER INTRO: Aging punk rocker with two adult kids and a toddler, living in rural New York. I used to write to fight the patriarchy. Now, I write to keep my sanity. My style is paranormal voyeurism.
