It’s one thing to say, “I’m going to write a book” but once you have a book outline, that book then has the chance of not only being written, but a chance at being published.
Knowing who the characters are before I write is imperative. I need who they are before I can tell their story.
This post is about death and grief. It may be a trigger for some, so please consider this the warning label. In this post I talk about what grief has brought to my life. It can be many soul breaking things, but it can also be inspirational.
It’s amazing what can come out of going back to basics. I have learned a lot over the years: Trust your instincts and listen. Oh, and edit. A lot.
Unless there’s a deadline, I let responsibility take over my life. A writing group changes that. I focus. I am kept accountable and I get shit done!
