It’s Begun


Well, I started blogging my novel out of sheer desperation. I got the first scene down, so that’s a good start. I can’t comment on quality other than to say it’s a first draft, and obviously needs work. I can edit one of these freaking blog posts all day if I let myself, which is why I’ve made it a rule [possibly a bad one, but it’s the only way I can get anything done] that I don’t go back and read a post once it’s up.

There’s always something that needs tweaking, fixing, or deleting. I’m a perfectionist [probably need a freaking twelve step program for it] and I’ll never be satisfied with it. Editing is a good and necessary thing, but not on a first draft.

So, you’re welcome to read it, but please be kind if you comment, and remember it’s not finished. [Link is here]

Oh yeah, if you have time and are so inclined, pray for me, wish me luck, send positive thoughts, or whatever it is you do. I’m gonna need all the help I can get!

Did I mention it was fun? It was. If I end up being good enough at this to make money at it, I’m gonna love my job!

Work-at-home wife, mom of three kids, and caregiver for my brother, who has Cerebral Palsy. Never a dull moment, in other words. No idea how much I'll post, since I'm super busy these days, but maybe I'll get over here once in a while.
