A Few Minutes on Writing

Well, after months of struggling, I’m finally really into my last novel called The Subway.  It’s a challenging book, but I’m having a great time writing it.  I have the hardest time starting a book.  The first chapter gives me the blues, because I can’t just write any old thing and keep going, even though I know it’s a first draft.  The first chapter sets everything up for me, so it has to be right from the gate.  Now that doesn’t mean that when I finish the beginning won’t change, but for now that is the beginning.


I’m working really hard on Kizmic’s Journey.  I’ve been working on this novel for a few years.  I got the idea for Kizmic’s Journey right after Water In A Broken Glass was published.  I jotted down some notes then and now I’ve got a wonderful first draft.

I going to spend the next few months editing the heck out of the story.  I want it just right.  I love editing almost as much as I love getting that first draft out of my head.  When I’m reading Kizmic’s Journey, I laugh out loud.  That let’s me know that I’m on the right track.  If I don’t find anything I write funny, no one else will.  I believe I will have a publishable novel by Thanksgiving.

I’ll be posting some excerpts soon.
