    The best advice I've every gotten about writing is to do it every day so... I do! I have a journal (Dapper Foxes from Peter Pauper Press. I highly recommend them because their notebooks are all really cute and very high qulity for decent prices. My awesome fox one is almost full so I just ordered a new one from them for 13 dollars, which is one of their more expensive books! Dapper Foxes and others like that one are 8 or 9 dollars, I think!) that I've written at least a few sentences in every day since November 19th or 20th of last year and I can tell you honestly that my writing has gotten so much better in just these few months! My ability to write on-demand has improved the most, but my critical writing and essay writing skills have developed as well! I definitely recommend setting aside 5 or 10 minutes every day just to write in a journal or to type out a paragraph or two about your day. After about a month it'll turn into a habit!

    I am working on two novel manuscripts at the moment, and thinking of pursuing traditional publishing if I can. Pitching to an agent would be first on that list once I have something I can share at all. Self-publishing would be a possibility... provided I'm up for being able to handle all the demands involved - marketing, editing, revising, sensitivity readers as needed, book cover, back cover summary, etc. The marketing itself is what intimidates me.
