I came across this comment in my computer. I obviously meant to start something with it. Please forgive the typos. They are ferocious. (If this information is redundant please forgive me. I Just have a lot to say about it.) 🙂 Have a piece of cake, please and read on.
“I haven’t come up with that problem but have to get going on a big project that I’ve neglected for some time. Not sure what to do about it. I miss it.
I thought I would be marketing my new children’s book but the delays keep coming and I am not going to wait any longer. Just decided to heck with it. I’ll restart the project any way. Now for a major shift in thinking about my WIP. Not the children’s book but the main big book, my memoir. I think I’ll write about it in a post because this is turning out to be too long. Thanks for letting spout off about it. 🙂 ”
Yep, I definitely want to go back to my memoir. I think I’ll finish up my latest Picture Book and start. It means reading my journals and finding the nuggets to copy and embellish. I really did enjoy doing that. I’ll just re start the memoir. Marketing will happen.
That is what I wrote a long time ago. I have been re reading my journals and writing down nuggets and have even taken a scene course. Now it‘s now or never. I’ve been planning to go back to a schedule in January and its here. I have signed a contract with two teachers to write my memoir in six months so here goes nothing. My schedule says writing comes first every morning so no one will see me until it’s done. I’ve got a specific number of words to make for a goal each day. A ten thousand word count every month and by June will have a book length project done, 60,000 words done!
So my posts won’t be long and I won’t show up from time to time. Did you see last week’s Perfect Picture Book Friday? PPBF/ Modern Olympic Games? Nothing but the facts, Mam. Thank you Mam.
Hope you’ll understand. I’ve disappointed myself before so this time I’m determined and I even have help. Here is where I was last January. I posted my goals online as well and I can learn from them and the class I took then.
So for those of you that are new and haven’t been following me then I’ll just say this isn’t the first time I’ve made goals to write my memoir. 🙂
But I’ve got a word this time. Transformational! And if I could take a second one it would be Brave. It’s taking courage to relive and write the painful parts. I keep stopping for them. So I’ll leave it at that.
Take care sweet friends! See you Friday for PPBF!
oh yes! The winner from last weeks post on Linda Sittig’s interview was Reading with Rhythm! Linda Sittig’s book, “KinderBooking: Looking at Life through Love, Laughter, and Literature” will be sent to you as soon as logistically it can be.
Yay! Reading with Rhythm. please get in touch with me. Either in comments or email. I’d like to get your book to you.
I wonder? How many of you read my Perfect Picture Book Friday posts and who reads my Tuesday’s posts? Do you mind telling me in the comments? Who of you read both Friday and Tuesday posts?
