Looking at my writer's submission calendar for this year, and with only 31 days left, I realize I'd better get growing. Not just going, but growing in the literary sense.
At quick glance I notice I am slacking: only one submission in September, and four this month.
Although I have submitted 83 pieces, I am unmotivated, and discouraged by the lack of paying markets, especially for personal essays.
It is a busy time of year, and people don't have time for blogging, but when I receive a comment it is as exciting as discovering a seashell on a beach walk.
My blog is more or less a personal journal, so I know if I want to direct traffic my way, I have to offer readers tips and provide info, and freebies... not just cute pictures of my great grandsons Liam and Alex. But I am going to end this month with Liam and the snow family.
Look at how HE has grown.
Well, there are at least 15 hours left in this day, so I'm off to write. Enjoy the photos.
