Random Thoughts

about reading, writing, and anything else that interests me

I can’t believe it has been two months!

Well, actually, it was four days short of two months.  But anyway… That is how long I had gone without working on the novel.  I am embarrassed to admit it, but it is all too true.

I have read a couple books lately about writing — one about writing fight scenes that may prove helpful — and they have gotten me going on the book again.

What I am coming to believe is that we have to just finish this book and get going on the next.  I got a glimpse of that at Bubonicon in August.  Why was I sitting there listening to people talk about writing rather than writing myself?  I don’t mean to imply that I know everything there is to know or that I didn’t learn valuable information at the con, but there comes a time when you have to just sit down and do the hard work of writing.

And it doesn’t stop there.  I also read The Pursuit of Perfection and How It Harms Writers by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, which made me realize that if I want to seriously be a writer, I have to write, publish, write, publish, and write some more.  She talks about writing as a career.  And while I am not planning to support myself with my writing at this stage of my life, I would like to publish and make a little money.  And that takes multiple books.

So, time to get off the blog and back to the book.  See you later!
