Oh…So easy to fall behind…

and then kick myself for not making pretty words.

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”~ Ferris Bueller.

Aside from the new Superbowl ad rehashing the whole movie in 30 seconds…I am glad to be reminded of this quote. Here’s another:

“You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period.”~Will Smith in The Pursuit of Happyness

These are my mottoes for 2012!

You have been warned!

Patience…

I check my e-mail 5 times a day even though I know it takes time for a literary agent to peruse an entire novel in a Word document.

So I keep working on Book the Second in my fantasy trilogy.

I have spent so many Novembers writing chunks in a frenzy. It feels good to work on book 2 in a planned and linear fashion and I am making good progress.

My goal is 500 words a day and I am close to keeping up!

Oh…and I love my new widget for my word count goals (right-hand side). I am no programmer, but Stacking Pennies wrote a program that was so easy to modify even for me…so watch this space for my Book 2 progress!

Super busy weekend!

I hate it when I fall behind on my writing assignments. It’s just 500 words a day. But when my girlie’s 4th Birthday party rocks the house at a local bowling alley and then Superbowl Sunday hits that means I have to spend 4 days playing catch up!

So…852 words per day for the next 4 days. And they can’t just be words…I like em best when they are good words. Solid, no-plot-hole pages is the only way to go.

Yet another Goals-for-the-New-Year Blog!

Welcome to my shiny brand-new blog!

May I have a resounding “NOOB!” from the audience?……Thank you!

I am a writer with a close-to-being-finished first installment of a Fantasy Trilogy called The Hunted Mage!

I have an agent interested in passing my work on to another agent who is looking for an author so I have some high hopes for the New Year.

Since I am currently unemployed I have been making great strides toward my final edit and hope to send Book 1 out by the end of January. (I would have sent it out before but my beta-reader Lea (my lovely bride) found a huge swath of pure drivel that I needed to re-write. (Wrote the drivel in a National Novel Writing Month and boy did it need tidying up!)

So, I must learn to market my work. Not so easy since I have never had any work to market before, but thanks to fellow author Karina Fabian I have some hints.

So here we go. I am looking for a widget that I can add to this site that will show my writing progress in a side bar.

Stay Tuned!
