Well Hell!

From deep in my writing cave (which is really my kitchen table-cum-desk-cum breakfast bar).

I'm hard at work and deep in self doubt. Most people have no idea just what it takes to write a novel. The plotting the research. The actual putting of words together so that they not only make sense but convey emotion, description and move the story along. Don't get me started on character development.

But as I sit here completely rewriting Psychokinesis I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. My wrist ache my eyes beg for mercy but Darcelle and Caden are now characters that people can relate too. The story richer and fuller and making a hell of  a lot more sense.So back to the grindstone go I.

Here are a few post I've enjoyed in the last few days.

I found this one through Janet Reid. This is Myra McEntire

Then there was Nathan Bransford explaining what was wrong with me. Just in case you're wondering I lack confidence.

And I do so love a man in uniform. Find an interview of one here at Dancing Branflakes

I'm sure you were cursing my name as you did rewrites. Hey, don't ask me for an opinion if you aren't prepared for me to give suggestions. LOL

You know you're doing awesome! Keep at it.

Hey Blue

Don't ever feel like you're not good enough. Believe in yourself as others (me) do and you'll achieve whatever you put your mind to. You'll not be lacking for effort or brains, so belive in yourself and make those dreams happen! Remember, I want my dedication on your best-seller! :) :) :)
