Congratulations to us all and most especially to our Ninja Captain for starting the IWSG blog for us insecure types. Today marks it’s one year anniversary!! Toddling steps and now look at us, contributing to a guide we can all use! Thank you Alex for all that you do for us… and to all your co-hosts throughout the year.
I have much to write about this month, but won’t make this post long, I promise. I’m nervous, excited, hesitant and jubilant because I’ve finished my “former” work in progress. Now I’m getting the book formatted, getting the cover tweaked, hoping against hope all will be done before I go to the writer’s conference I’m attending on the 24 of this month. Arg! Still, if I must choose something to be nervous or concerned about, this is it. The first draft of the next novel is already on my computer, thanks to NaNoWriMo last year and I can’t wait to get started on it. But before I can indulge one thing must come first, the “dreadful” —and I do dread it—marketing of the finished product. I so wish I could just hire someone to do it all for me.
Oh well. The trials of the writer’s life. Like I said before, if I have to choose something to be upset over, this is it. Because it all comes back to writing, doesn’t it? This novel has taken SO LONG for me to get right or at least as right as I can make it. I’m glad it’s done, and I'm glad to move on. But I don’t want to go too fast and overlook something important that I will regret later. So, I’m staying in low gear. This novel obviously listened to the Pointer Sisters when it came to needing a “slow hand!” Thanks for dropping by.
