I started this blog while I was off work for 6 weeks recovering from a hip replacement. To say it has taken on it’s own personality, or a life of it’s own, is an understatement. It has become something I could never have imagined. It has become a catalyst for me to get off my scaredy-cat ass and write my book. And I have all of you to thank for that.
I have made some wonderful virtual friends through this blog and you all (or y’all) have both inspired and shamed me into getting out of fear and just doing it. So many wonderful authors out there in the blogosphere and I want to be a part of it…at least I have to try!
I’m terrified. I’m afraid it will be trite. I’m afraid I won’t be able to get past ten pages. I’m afraid I literally have no idea what I’m doing and simply don’t have enough education or know-how to actually construct a novel.
I’ve decided to just do it anyway and see what happens…and I have you guys…this blog community to thank for that.
I’m not sure if I’m going to outline or just start writing…or a combination of both. I’ve been collecting bullet points of ideas/themes over the last year so I suppose I’ll start with that.
This is terrifying stuff…I’ll keep you posted, and thanks for the encouragement in advance!
