If I were to write a series of stories about my childhood on the farm, what would you like to hear about?
There are so many stories competing to be told... I just don't know where to start!
Some of you are here because you relate, in some way, to my way of looking at life, and my rural upbringing. Some of you, though, are here because it's totally different from your life, which makes it interesting and new.
I haven't been the best blogger lately. My posts are pretty short, and I haven't made time to go read the brilliant offerings from my fellow bloggers. (Sorry!!!) I don't think my blog's been up to the quality I'd like it to be.
I'm at a slightly uncomfortable place in my fledgling writing career. I've proven that I am capable of writing a whole novel from beginning to end, as well as rewriting and editing that novel until it's as close to perfect as I can get it. I've learned how to put in the research needed to learn how the publishing world works. I wrote the query letter and the synopsis and then rewrote them both over and over. I sent out over a hundred queries. I'm still here wondering what to do next.
The query letter once thought to be polished to perfection has not done its job. I plan to start it from scratch and get it right, then start the process again.
Big problem: I'm not writing enough! The new novel that had me fired up is becoming a chore and that is Not Good. I want to love writing again.
I think I could love writing about the kid I was, with the braided hair and "I love horses" T shirt. And the Shaun Cassidy T shirt.
Can you tell me what you'd like to read?
