Just a quick shout out that my newest novel, roughly titled “Still Waters” has begun! I’m so in the honeymoon stage and loving writing.
Of course, that’s a tease, but I never talk about the book I’m writing. It’s not suspicion, just realization that if I talk about what I’m writing I lose enthusiasm for what I’m writing.
Also, SO MUCH changes from the first words put down to the last revision. Why would I want to tell you such and such is X when it may turn out to be G?
I waffle a lot before I start writing, not sure if I’m ready, if I’ve done enough outlining, if the idea is solid. But Saturday night, I put those first words down.
I’ll admit part of it is because I have a deadline – there’s a particular writing contest I would like to enter in June, so I have to hurry, hurry, hurry!
But I’m tucked away writing today on my Alphasmart, and it’s a cold snow day, so you won’t hear much from me.
Stay warm, folks! *smile*
