I just stumbled on this forum, and it looks pretty neat so far. I thought I'd hang up my coat and linger awhile. I've been writing all my life, but only started taking it seriously a few years ago (in the sense that I started a regular routine of practice and study). I'm looking to finish my first novel revision soon, but I've been having trouble keeping up my motivation during the lengthy revision process. I'm hoping that checking in here with other people going through the same thing will help keep me fired up. Anyway, I'm looking forward to hanging out and getting to know everyone. Happy holidays!
