In my last post, I laid out a scary truth. Writers should be networking. And while many of you already knew this, it’s still scary. And it’s tough to figure out where to start. Writing is a whole different ballgame than say sales or marketing.
I am mentally preparing for the NYC Midnight Short Story Challenge that I recently entered. And, by mentally preparing, I actually mean silently praying that I didn’t make a huge mistake and that I don’t get assigned a genre I know absolutely nothing about. And, hyperventilating a little.
So, I have a question.
I want to know the most intense writing challenge you’ve ever entered and how you got through it. Or, just how you get through any sort of intense writing deadline. How do you make your brain work under pressure? Where do you get your ideas when you don’t have time to brainstorm or ponder. I need tips. I need encouragement. I want to hear your story.
