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.

Rollin', rollin', rollin'

Finally got moving on that troublesome scene in SR this morning. Just switched from Rebecca's POV to Jackson's, and we're good to go! It's still a little slow in coming--I've only written two pages thus far--but at least it's moving.

Today is the first day of the Dialogue That Works: Less is More workshop presented by New York Times Bestselling Author Elizabeth Lowell through RWAOL. We've already had our first assignment: to post 15 lines from the first conversation between our hero and heroine. And wouldn't you know it, I think I've already messed up. *sigh*

I understood that we were supposed to post up to 15 lines from the first conversation. Which is what I did. Posted 15 lines from the first conversation between Jackson and Rebecca, including dialogue, reaction, and introspection.

After I posted my assignment, the workshop coordinator posted a blanket admonition saying we were supposed to post 15 lines of dialogue.

Pardon me while I bang my head on the keyboard.


MOOD:Confuzzled, frustrated
PROGRESS: 2 pages so far this morning on SR
WHAT I'M READING:"Midnight in Ruby Bayou" by Elizabeth Lowell


  • I thought it was 15 lines regardless of it being dialogue (that thingy between quotes). I'm frustrated too about it 'coz the moderator said one thing and Elizabeth responded with something else.

  • I'd definitely go by what Elizabeth said. Besides, she didn't complain about what I posted.
