Coming Together

My book was at a little bit of a tight spot that I did not know how to get out of. It is like when something is tied in a really complicated knot and you have no idea how to untie it. You have to look at it from many different angles and then you have it untied.

Well, that is what was going on. I had already written the end of it at the beginning stages of writing and when I got to that point I knew that some major tweaking had to take place and I just could not get a hold on it. I had to play around with it a lot and voila, it is untied and I am able to proceed.


It is coming along.

Finding the Perfect Chateau

Dear Followers,

I am in the process of finding the perfect Chateau for my book. It is interesting. It is like I am in the market chateau; like I am going to purchase it for myself. Well, if I could buy it for $100 then bring it on. Nope just finding it for my imagination to become a reality!

Some Writing Jitters

I think that I was having a little bout with writers block this weekend. I wrote but it was not super exciting to write. Usually I get enthralled in my writing but this time it was more slave work than anything; not exciting in the least. I did have a headache at the time so that may have played a role in my lack of desire. It was sort of a difficult part to write. I will need to re-evaluate the chapter and make it all the better. Well, I guess that this is all in the name of writing... Sometimes it's great and other times it's drudgery. I am at 204 pages now. I will keep ya posted.

My Novel

For those that do not know, I am in the process of writing a novel. I sort of wish that I had been blogging about it during the process of writing but just thought that I would start one now.

Here's how it began, I had a dream in December (yes, really I had a dream that inspired me). The dream just kept on bitting at me all day long while I was at work. For those that know me really well, I have dramatic, vivid and sometimes crazy, terrifying dreams. This one was not necessarily in that catagory but close enough. Over the period of a couple weeks, the dream still was just as vivid in my mind as it was the night I had it.

I decided that it was time to develop it into a plot line. I had tried to write before but to no avail however one very sleepless night I formed the beginning stages of the book in my head. I began to write in early January 2010.

Now, four months later, I am at 198 pages and some wrists that get very sore after writing for a while.

All I can tell you about the book, is it is set in Paris. My trip to Paris last summer paid off even more than just being able to see Lance Armstrong riding in Le Tour de France. I look forward to finishing the rough draft by the end of May 2010 and progressing forward through the editing process. That is the part that scares me but I will be fine.

I am completely dedicated to making this work a published piece of literary genius. Well, it sure won't be Tokien but close. :)

Check back for more information about the book and book signings to come. I will be doing that though. I am positive.
