I think that this winter was the winter of inspiration.
I’ve been working in a copy & print shop for over four years now and I do see the odd manuscript from time to time. Most of the things I’ve seen have been memoirs (note to self: someday, rant about memoirs) but for some reason, last month, I saw three different manuscripts. All originally came through in the same week. And one of them? It’s really getting published*.
As a writer I love seeing the manuscripts come through the shop. Granted, even when I skim them, I spend a great deal of time scoffing at them (I’m a bad person) but that doesn’t mean I’m any less happy for the writer. I’ve finished manuscripts before, and I know how magical it is to finally have that story finished and it a physical form.
I’ve written one manuscript so far this year and I intend to write another in November. What about y’all finish any manuscripts that you’ll be dropping by a print shop like mine to copy? Or any other projects?
*By a small indie published, it is my understanding, so it’s not exactly well-advertised. Too bad.
