Hello, You Coy Muse :)

Psst.  You know how I’ve been cracking jokes all along about my untapped literary genius?  Well if you come here, I’ll let you in on a little secret. 


I’m not all that good.  But – and this is huge here, folks! – turns out I don’t suck quite as bad as I thought, either.  I’m writing something at present that I’m actually kind of pleased with.   I won’t share any more details for fear of jinxing my progress, but suffice it to say it’s a contemporary romance set in the southern US.

But now that I’m over the writing doldrums, what the heck am I going to do with this thing?


Don’t even bother to suggest taking it off my hands.  I’m thinking of melting it down and having it recast into something…useful.   

Any suggestions?

    Congratulations! 🙂 The most I can hope for during the first draft is ideas thrill me. Reminds me of that quote…

    I have rewritten — often several times — every word I have ever published. My pencils outlast their erasers.

    Congratulations on your Muse running in and stomping around with you. Enjoy it!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. Ruth, you’re a positive fountainhead of good quotes. Thanks, both for this and the good wishes. We’ll see if it my Muse is up for more fun today. 🙂

  2. That’s always a great feeling!

    I want to know where you got the smiley face jumping on the dusty sofa…that’s cute! I wonder if they make one with flying cat hair…
