Progress Report -- 9/10/12

Just got back from the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers conference, which was terrific. I was a finalist for their annual novel contest in the Young Adult category... didn't win, but making it to the finals is pretty good stuff. Even better, I made some excellent connections with agents and some other writers.

Most of all, I was inspired. Which was really what I needed most. Life has been crazy, busy, and generally hostile towards writing lately, so I was really jonesing for a powerful injection of creative inspiration. And I got it. I'm still buzzing.

The obstacles are still there, both internal and external, but I've now got quite a few ideas about how to blast through them. I'm shaping the charges and getting the fuses lit. Cover your ears...
