How I Spent Hurricane Sandy

When my Internet went out, I looked at it as two days to catch up on reading and editing.  New York City was absolutely closed, and I was safe in my perch 18 floors above the Hudson.  All of the publishing houses were closed and I imagined that every editor I knew was doing the same thing I was - reading. No phone calls and no reason to set foot out the door. A golden time to write, edit and/or read.

I had an enormous amount of reading to do for work.  A partial from an author I adore who is looking to change agents.  A rocker bio. Two or three pieces of post-50 SHADES OF GREY erotica I had asked to see. An anthology call to edit (and maybe post here). A handful of erotic memoir proposals that interested me.

And, as a reward for my diligence, I also dipped into a published novel that I had started two months ago.  What pleasure!

I want to point out that Hurricane Sandy could be good news for writers.  Even if you get a rejection on Wednesday, you will know where you stand.  It means that you can start NANOWRIMO with a clean slate.

You could certainly see your skills in the work you write.

The sector hopes for more passionate writers like you
who aren't afraid to mention how they believe. All the time follow your heart.
