WIP Day - or the lack off...

Happy WIP day. 
Ok, happy maybe "happy" isn't the best choice.

I know many of you fellow bloggers out there also have WIP days.  And I know, just like myself, you have too many WIP days when you have nothing WIP-ish to update.  Today is that day for me.  I know how you feel.  It makes you feel horrible.  Like you aren't doing your work as hard as you should be.  Or aren't showing your WIP as much love as it deserves.  Like you, some how, are letting down your many blogging friends with the fact that you didn't rock the awesome this last week.

Never fear.  It happens to the best of us.  Life does happen, as much as we wish we had control over it like we do our make-believe worlds.  Children call, work demands, sleep eludes.  We can't always ignore life.  And so, our WIP takes the brunt of it and gets pushed to the side.

Poor WIP.
Its ok though.  WIP will never leave.  WIP loves you.  WIP needs you. 
You are not a horrible writer.  You should not give up.  You should not go back to only your day job and put aside this crazy dream of yours.

So if you, like myself, found that this last week you sorely neglected your needy WIP, don't fret or feel guilty.  Just make a point to give it a little extra love in the days to come.  Soon we will all be at the point where we will have this amazing piece of work in hand, finished and polished.  A true novel.  And the days of WIP love/hate/guilt/joy will be all but a memory.

So, again I say:  Happy WIP day.
