X is for xcitement. I know I am cheating, but there was no emotion starting with the alphabet X. So, I tweaked the spelling a little by dropping off the E.
Shiny New Ideas always xcite us writers. I am a ball of nervous xcitement whenever I start working on any new project. I am like a small child with a shiny new toy.
This xcitement sustains me through the first draft. Good news xcites me. My cheques xcite me (not that they are very big, nevertheless, I am happy with them). When I hear about a new agent or a new publisher I am xcited.
Do you get xcited when you start a new project? Does good news xcite you?
Note: this is my post for the A to Z Challenge. My theme is Emotions and Feelings writers experience.
