Are you burned out? That's okay! Taking a break from your WIP is sometimes what you need to recharge. Or, are you letting your current WIP sit for the recommended 4+ weeks so you can go back to it with fresh eyes?
My part of our Writing Motivation theme is – Things to work on that still count as writing!
A – Agents and Publishers
Is your career goal to be traditionally published? Take a breather from your WIP and do some research into agents to find the ones who you believe might be a good fit for your writing and your business style. Remember, you're looking for a career, right? You need a business partner who is excited about what you write AND who you can work with successfully.
