Thanks, Kelly. Alas I got up this morning and realized I had to cut most of my progress. Wah!

If you got past a hump the rest should be easier keep going you know you want to and you know you can. Or I do anyway- trust me -Anne McKenna

Yes, you will. I got up this morning thinking of a lady at work who keeps whinging at me about how long it is taking her to walk after a broken leg. I keep telling her that things take time, she probably thinks how would I know. The thing is I have had to learn to walk 4 times and that is what I was trying to tell her things take time - the good thing is they are worth it in the end. Also remember that nothing is perfect in life, I can't walk perfectly in fact far far from it but at least I can walk. How that fits in with your writing I have no idea but I just thought I would share that with you

Yah for progress! Each word takes you closer to the finish line.

Yes, and each of those deletions I made this morning takes me farther away. So bummed.

Good progress, Susan! And you know, cutting doesn't mean going backwards--it means you're getting closer to what you really want to say. :)

I surely hope that's the case. :)

I am so jealous. You are actually writing. I'm doing the conference thing, loving it, but itching to get back to my story.

Good for you.

Thank you but it is very little writing still progress is progress.

I bet page 46 is BRILLIANT! :)
August 10th, 2009 09:40 pm (UTC)
Well now there is no page 46, alas. I am back to about page 35. Sigh.

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
