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!
