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.

*happy butt wiggle*

WOO HOO! I'm floating on air right now. In LA Banks' workshop over at Romance Divas, Writing with the Senses, I posted a piece of a dialogue scene from BMO. My CPs had never looked at this scene, so it was all me. And let me tell you, I was a little more than nervous. I was shaking in my boots. (Yes, I do wear boots, mostly of the cowboy variety.)

Here are her comments:

Oooohhhh…. Lynn, this is excellent! Yeah! Fast, quick/hot, you can feel what’s going on, there’s a hint of the sensory, this scene doesn’t need any more to bog it down. You get the tension and mood between them right away. Her stomping, etc, nicely done! Hugs, Les!

I feel vindicated! I'd been worried I couldn't write a decent scene without input from my CPs, but Leslie just told me it's not true. My butt's wiggling like mad.

Two of my CPs, who are also taking this workshop, received similar comments from Leslie, so now I'm triply excited. ^5 Sheri and Cynthia!

AND THEN, to top it off, I got five good pages written on SR yesterday.

Yup. Feeling pretty darn good today.


MOOD: It's in the title, but it bears repeating. *insert happy butt wiggle here*
PROGRESS: 5 pages on SR yesterday


  • Oh, I read her comments to your dialogue last night! She loved it! Congrats!
