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.

Today is the day.

No, really!

Today is the day I'm going to buckle down and really get to work. I've been tiptoeing aroung the writing for long enough. I'm gonna have some breakfast, drag Rocky's a/c cord upstairs, and settle in for some serious writing.

Mailman brought me a lovely surprise yesterday. FIRST DRAFT IN 30 DAYS by Karen S. Weisner, a fellow FTH member. In simple terms, the book is supposed to teach a 30-day method that produces an outline so complete it's considered a first draft. I sure hope this method works for me because I could certainly use a fire lit under my behind.

So now I'm comfy, Rocky's in my lap, the laundry's started, my breakfast is next to me, and I'm ready to go. I'm going to log off the Internet, quit procrastinating, and start writing.

Really. I am.


MOOD: Rarin' to go!
PROGRESS: 2 pages yesterday. I'm hopeful for today.


  • Let me know if the book is any good, Lynn! *g* And have a great day writing!

  • Holy Cow! I can comment!

    Anyway, since I managed to get in, I just wanted to say good luck with the writing! Kick some butt! (Maybe a wiggle every now and then will work wonders too!)

  • Silma, so far, the book's pretty good. At least it's got me thinking. Once I finish reading it, I'll go back and try the technique. Fingers crossed I won't feel the need to pull my hair out when I do.

  • Hey, Bob! Glad you managed to get in to comment. Thanks for the good luck wish. And just for you:

    *insert happy butt wiggle here*
