Sharing my good days and bad days

OK! Time to tell you why I procrastinate!

It’s true that I have always wanted to write…

Not only write a novel, but to be a published author! To see my name on the cover (and spine) of a book at the public library, Christian bookstores, and on Amazon!

When I began writing, sure it was hectic, and nerve-wracking at times, but it was also fun! I had so much fun making up characters and giving them speech… I even had a character conk another character on the head… hee hee

And when the 30 days were past and I had actually finished… well, that’s when the fear really hit me.

Sure, I could write a book — but I wanted to write a book everyone would want to read, and that’s much more difficult than just sitting down and writing a story. I knew my book needed editing; this is when I began putting it off — some days I never opened the document, other days I started reading through it, but didn’t know where to begin – to make it better.

I sent three chapters to an online friend, who cheerfully sent it back with thousands of words – IN RED – trying to advise me on how to make it better.

I knew she was sincere, but it just threw me into a depression… and my book lay dormant for months.



So now what…

Let me think about it… I’ll get back with you

– tomorrow.


God bless!
