THE THING I HATE MOST ABOUT WRITING...

Editing – in a word. The writing part is all fun and games and then comes the real big job. Currently, I have a one hundred and thirty-four thousand word whopper that needs a lot of snipping. I had a whale of a time writing this romantic suspense novel, but now I’m a third of the way in and I... Sign in to see full entry.

TRYING TO MOVE AHEAD

To follow up on that post half a year ago (see below), so much has happened. The publisher went bust, but wouldn’t admit what was happening. First their site went missing and their name started popping up on the Absolute Write forums. Other writers got burned and were not paid royalty on books... Sign in to see full entry.

SOMETIMES I THINK I’M A WITCH…

A nd I bet you thought I’d disappeared again. Well, what I predicted in my last post Following Through on Commitments came through. I completed a young adult novel in March of last year. I put it up on another site and got extremely valuable feedback, which at the time, put it into the top 10 on... Sign in to see full entry.

FOLLOWING THROUGH ON COMMITMENTS

Have you ever wondered why it’s possible for one person to get things done in a timely and organized fashion, but it’s near impossible for someone else? In my personal life, I’ve decided to do lots of stuff that never get past a certain point because I don’t follow through. It’s not only a simple... Sign in to see full entry.

FOOT DRAGGING...

I n my last post, I talked about my next round of writing drawing nearer, but from what I can tell, it seems that I am putting it off. I have some stuff posted on another site for critiquing and I haven't gone there in months. That's where I should go now to see if any critiques have been given, but... Sign in to see full entry.

AND WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME...

I actually sat down and wrote something? Months! I'm tempted to start the next sentence with 'currently', but a few months ago cannot be considered current. However, I'm in the middle of one novel and near the end of another with literally no end in sight if I don't get back to the business of... Sign in to see full entry.

SEEKING...SEEKING...SEEKING

A s per usual, I choose to do the easiest tasks first. I've sent out nearly twenty query letters so far for my novel. I sent those by email to agents who accept them that way. Already, I have some rejections rolling in, two requests to send the entire manuscript (Dorrance Publishing & Children's... Sign in to see full entry.

MOVING...EVEN IF IT'S AT A SNAIL'S PACE

I ’ts slump time again. Last week I was full of energy, reading and editing chapters from my completed novel. I even went as far as querying a few agents and inviting them to review my manuscript. This week, I seem to have fallen asleep. I have done nothing since Monday, well except browse through... Sign in to see full entry.

WASTING TIME

I'm sure that some of us have wasted time pursuing useless tasks when the time could have been better spent writing. I spent most of today fooling with this blog and wondering why the colours would not wor.k. I should have been continuing with my search for an agent, but no, I preferred to fool with...

WHERE DO I GO NEXT?

T he novel I wrote is about an eleven-year-old girl growing up in a turbulent household. Her father was murdered by her mother. She goes to her aunt's home and her siblings go to a home. I'm not writing a sequel about her brother and I have got to a certain point, but I am stuck. How do I finish off... Sign in to see full entry.
