I was going to entitle this blog blurb “It is finished.” Not wanting to sound heretical for using scripture totally out of context, however, I thought again.
What is finished? My novel. Actually, my second novel. The first one was finished a couple of years ago, but I had no idea what I was doing and, frankly, it needs a lot of work. I went on from there to educate myself, hang out with some really cool (and accomlished) writer folks, and read much more widely. What I found out is that there really IS a writer hiding in my closet, and I really CAN do this.
Now if I can only convince an agent or publisher of this!
I have a third novel waiting in the wings (actually, it is already more than half completed), and after a short break (to read some books I have been dying to get to), I’ll tackle that one.
Of course, there are sequels to all three novels hiding in my brain, but first things first…
In case anyone (all three of you) is interested, I discovered the little PC software program called “yWriter” and highly recommend it. I still don’t use it to do the actual wordprocessing of my books, but it has proved a valuable tool for organzing thoughts, scenes, characters, special props, etc. Check it out on the link at the left.
