About Writing

I am a writer.  There, I said it.  I write.  I have written since I could form words with a pencil.  I have written coherent stuff since I was eight.  I am a writer and there is no getting around it.  Truthfully, I don’t want to avoid it any longer. 

I have two projects going now.  I am writing  my first novel (I know there will me more) and I am restarting my writing business.  I do grant writing and technical writing.  So, if you need a grant proposal or a technical manual written, I am your writer. 

As for my novel, I have finally started moving forward.  This has been festering in my mind and body for a very long time.  I could always find something else to do instead of write.  However, the pages only get written when I actually sit down to write them. 

One page at a time.  Stop focusing on the size of the project and just focus on getting a page or more written every day.  Sounds easy, right?  Not so much.  Still it is difficult to set time aside everyday to write.  I am always working on that one.  It’s only the most important aspect of writing.  The book is not going to write itself.  And, I have discovered that nothing is more  satisfying than getting your story out of your head and on the paper or computer.   It is the truest feeling of freedom I have ever experienced and I want to feel that all the time! 

So, I am writing this blog to follow the progress of my novel (and maybe my various grant projects).  Soon, you’ll see me on the back cover!
