A Writer's Path

Well kids, I finally did it, but I'm not sure where to go from here. I've had a short story published. Yay! But what do I do now? Blog about it perhaps. Of course, spread the word! But really, now what? I submitted my middle grade novel to a publisher a few months back and am awaiting to hear news on that front. I've been writing a little, but not nearly as much as I should be. I think maybe the way for me to go is to keep writing short stories and submitting them where ever I can. Something's bound to pan out eventually, right? There's no certainty in that, but for me, maybe it's the best option. I loved, and at times hated, writing my novel and I'm hesitant to continue with book two of the series until I know what's happening with book one. The truth is, I will keep writing, because I can't not write and whatever direction it takes me in, I will follow, pencil in hand. Here are the links to purchase "Scarlet Whispers".
My short story "Adagio" can be found within its pages. It is a horse-themed anthology whose proceeds will benefit Hilltop Haven Equine Rescue and Rehabilitation. Please visit their site as well. "Adagio" was based on a true story. My heartfelt thanks go out to Jo-Anne Russell and Ryan Cady and all of the fine folks at Scarlett River Press. Your comments are always welcome. Yours, Joanie
