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.

Back to Hades

Once again, I'm forced to question my sanity. This is happening entirely to often for my tastes.

I'm in the process of reading Pam McCutcheon's Writing the Fiction Synopsis: A step by step approach and trying, once again, to write the synopsis for IH using the method outlined in the book.

And of course, on top of that, I'm in the process of writing two, count 'em, two stories. One the romantic comedy with the hairy toothless drummer, and the other is Jackson's story, the follow-up to IH. They both have very different tones to them: BMO has my sarcastic heroine and the thong-wearing old lady, while SR is more . . . I hesitate to call it angsty, so I'll just say it's much less comedic and has my arrogant, yet hunky drummer, Jackson. How do I choose which ms to work on? Depends on my mood.

If I'm feeling particularly snarky, or if I've just watched an episode of the WB's Gilmore Girls, I go for BMO. But if I'm feeling more serious and/or melancholy, it's SR all the way.

But right now, as I type this blog entry, I'm actually avoiding working on the synopsis for IH, and remembering why I hate synopses so much.


  • Lynn, part of being a writer is being insane. *lol* After all, don't we see "people acting before us"? Don't we write what the "voices" tell us to? So, DON'T STOP THE INSANITY!!! Keep up the good work! You're having a wet spell. The Muses are working overtime. Enjoy it! =)

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.
