Road to Writing
When I first started, I thought all you had to do is write a book. Can you say *naive*, boys and girls? Join me on my journey as a pre- published writer looking to see my name on the cover of a book. I'll talk about all the bumps, bruises, joys and frustrations I encounter along the way.

Me? Avoid? Never!

I'm not avoiding writing. Not at all. Matter of fact, when I blog, I'm writing. So even if I'm not working on one of my WIPs, I'm writing. Right?

Sounded good.

How can I concentrated on my writing when I've got this wonderful new toy to play with?

Honestly, my critique group had recently discussed blogging, and my opinion was that although I thought it was a useful tool for published authors and soon-to-be pulished authors, I didn't see the need to do it for myself right now.

And I didn't.

But for some reason, this morning I got a wild bug up my . . . well, let's just say I had an itch. And I wanted to try it. Part of me justified it by saying that if I started it now, I'd be more familiar with the nuances and such.

How could I have known it would be so freeing?

Now I can ramble to my heart's content.

Now on to the writing stuff. After I finish this entry I'm going to do my crits. Really. I swear. I have three in the hopper waiting to be finished.

Somewhere along the line, I need to come up with a pen name. Not that I don't like my legal name -- I do. But it's not very melodic. Or authorly. I'll keep my first name. Lynn. But I need a last name to go with it. Something melodic and authorly.

Maybe I'll read the phone book.


  • Yay, you blogger you! Three in one day. Prolific. Especially since you're not avoiding your other writing ...snicker. It is fun to read, and I can see where it would be fun to write. I like this one better (if we're voting) but I like the "faces" of the other.

  • I'm posting anon too.

    Great site. I think I like the look of this one better too. But I do like the moods on the other. So have you found anything useful in the phone book yet? How far have you gotten?

I'm a wife, a mom, an operating room nurse, a writer, a hobby photographer, and a music lover who knits and crochets. And I'm fairly certain I've lost my mind.
