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.

Blue skies . . .

I'm feeling a bit better today. Got some ambition back. Even pulled out those synopsis crits and read through them without feeling like crying. I'd say that's progress. Definitely progress.

Haven't done any work on BMO, but I did make some changes to my notes for Jackson's story, and actually wrote the first five pages. They turned out a bit darker than I would have liked, and I'm debating whether I should rework them with a lighter hand, or just lighten up from there.


No matter. I'm just excited to have done something.


  • Don't sweat the synopsis, Hon. You can do it!

  • Sometimes characters don't behave like we want them to. It's an annoying thing, and we, like parents, try our characters, like children, to do what we want them to do. Something I learned is that characters have a mind of their own. Let them do 'their thing.' It's what seems natural to them. If you try to force them to do something different, the outcome won't be that good.

Location: Atlanta-ish, Georgia, United States

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.
