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.

My work is never done...

BIAW is finished, and I finished out the week making 133% of my goal. Yup, I'm proud of myself. I completed a tremendous amount of my free-written summary, and now have a great groove going. I'm pretty damn pleased.

But, of course, since BIAW is done, I now need to spend time catching up on everything I neglected last week. Housework, e-mails, bulletin boards, blog-hopping, crits... *swiping my hand across my forehead* Part of me wonders if I'll ever get caught up.

I did manage to get through a bunch of e-mail today, got some laundry out of the way, and my husband and I took my truck down to have the oil changed. At this rate, I figure I'll be caught up by sometime in October.

Tonight, instead of tackling those crits that are waiting patiently for my attention, I spent time listening to music clips and listing the next group of CDs I'll be ordering at the end of the week. I think my husband's still shaking his head. After that, I started writing again. Like I said, I've got a good groove going, and I would really hate to lose momentum. So now the headphones are on, and as soon as I finish blogging, I'll be immersing myself in Chad and Dakota's world again.

And did I mention my husband decided this weekend that our family vacation this year will be a trip to Disney World in Florida? I can't wait!

Enough rambling...back to work!


MOOD: Smug satisfaction (I don't get to say that often!)
MUSIC: "My Sanctuary" by Soul SirkUS
PROGRESS: 3 hours yesterday for a total of 133% of my BIAW goal
WHAT I'M READING: The Pleasure Slave by Gena Showalter


  • Lynn,

    Congrats on more than meeting your goal for BIAW!!! That's fantastic.

    My copy of FDin30D is waiting for me at the bookstore. Will let you know what I think after I've picked it up and had time to read through some of it. It certainly sounds like it's helped you :-)

    Have fun at Disney World!

  • Thanks, Tess!

    Everybody I've talked to who've read (or are reading) FDi30D has had good things to say about it, so my fingers are crossed for you, too. Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

    And I always have fun at Disney. When it comes to that place, I'm more a kid than my kids are. My husband finds it very amusing.

  • Vacations in Disney? Darn you're the second person who's going to Disney. I'm jealous! *g* Have fun!

    Oh, and congrats on meeting your BIAW's goal! You kicked some serious butt!
