Back In The Saddle

It's been a while since I worked on my project- okay, book. But tonight as I was driving home from my brother's a light kind of went off in my head. I'm not sure what happened but ideas just started churning and so I got back to writing as soon as I got home.

From the looks of it, I think I'm really happy with what I've gotten down this evening. Now let's see how I like it all when I fire up the computer tomorrow.

I swore to myself that I would try to have something ready for friends to read over by the end of the year. Then if it passes the test, I'll start hunting down agents and see if I get a bite and then I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed.

The whole process just freaks me out. Not the writing thing, just the whole, other people reading what I've written. It's complete malarkey of course, considering that I've had by lines on hundreds of articles from when I worked as a reporter. But still... Blech.

i can kind of relate...only in a different sort of way. I haven't told anyone I know about my blog. I would just feel to weird...people I know reading what i write.

Glad you felt inspired and good luck!
