A Mile Marker…100th Post!
My stats says this is the 100th post so it better not make a liar out of me. 🙂
My grandpa always said I was “windy” growing up. I never thought when I began this blog that I would get to this point in two years time. I congratulate those that can blog several times a week. I suppose in time I will get to that point, maybe.
My problem is I think of something fun to blog about, discuss it with my “thoughts” and then I forget what it was when I finally sit down to write it. I have a small notebook but forget to jot the ideas down. I guess I should start putting scratch paper everywhere. 🙂
I could place my post-it notes around the house.
I have plenty!
I can usually recall a memory from a few notes so the small ones would be plenty big. I can write pretty small.
Actually, that jogs my memory from school days.
I can remember a few of us girls going through a phase of seeing how tiny we could write. It drove the teachers nuts! The writing was nice and neat, so I don’t understand why they frowned handing the paper back.
Of course, now that I am that age, I do see the problem. I imagine after grading tons of papers the last thing they wanted to see was something so small they needed a magnifying glass to read it. 🙂 It sure was fun though.
I almost messed up blogging about my 100th post. I did those two reblogs, about did another, when a little light bulb went off in my head and I remembered I was about to hit the 100th!
Phew, that was close.
I meant for the 100th to be my first book cover reveal, but I am still working on it. I am also working on my edits. I am over halfway done. When I edit, I edit one chapter at a time. I actually end up editing it close to four times if not more.
I do my crossing out in red,
type it, reread,
retype, shake my head a few times,
talk to myself about how ridiculous that sounds, grab a Pepsi, watch some detective movie,
daydream the scene with me in it. (LOL), go on to next chapter.
I will come back after a few chapters and read from the beginning till the end of my editing. I can not seem to do it in one sweep from the beginning to the end. In fact, I can not tell you my ending as of this moment. I wrote it a year ago. I’m weird. 🙂
I’m hoping to be ready to hit that publish button by the end of the month. Hopefully, the movie watching won’t delay that. 🙂
I want to start the next book during Camp NaNoWriMo in April. The books are part of what will be a trilogy. I rocked it last year so I have a good vibe about this year!
I like writing in the warmer months better than the colder months. The last two years, November through February, I have not been inspired to write my book or edit it. I call it my vacation time. 🙂 Sounds good to me.
I have been struggling with the question of, will anyone like my book? I think that has made me slow down on editing the most. I hope people will like it, but at the same time, I am writing it for me first. I have wanted to write a book since I was in junior high.
I am thankful for the technology of e-books. I will complete one dream because of it. 🙂
When was the first time you wanted to publish a book?
