Shhh, I'm Writing a Book

I've been using every ounce of writing energy and every teeny second of writing time (so damned limited these days) to write my book, which I realized I HAD to do even if it never gets published. I have to get this book out of me. I have to be able to say that I tried even if it never works out and I never become the bestselling, touring author I want to be.

So I haven't been blogging and I'm sorry, but I hope it will all be worth it in the end. I'm very proud of what I've been writing and how far I've gotten. 140 pages as of just now!!! That's the most I've ever written and I have plenty left to go. I haven't even lost steam which is miraculous.

Thanks for being patient. You know what's aggravating as hell? I really want to share parts of the book with you and I can't. I think I'm addicted to blogging's instant gratification, but I need to hold out.

I'm pretty sure you're going to like it, so let me keep writing. At this rate, maybe I'll be done in a few weeks? Let's hope.

This is exciting news! I do enjoy reading your blog but I can be patient and it's good to know that you are working on your book and not still sick (I hope).

So happy for you, you little writing machine! Miss your posts, but glad you're plugging away on something important. Go, Wide Lawns!

Don't ever give up. Karyn Bosnak's book has been turned into a movie "What's Your Number" and is opening in theaters in 2 days. She started out just being a girl with a blog(like you), who I started following in 2002. 2 books and 1 movie later, here she is.

I cannot wait to read your book!

I'm willing to wait for lots of new words from you! And you're going like gangbusters - your progress is amazing. You know how Stephen King always puts the dates of his work somewhere in the first few pages? You're flying along compared to him. Also, I'm really glad you all seem to be feeling better.

You go girl!!! I've been hoping for years to see a book from you. And I'm certain it will be worth the wait!

I can't wait to see it, WL! :-) I've hoped (for years now) that you'd eventually get your stories written down.

By the way: there's a little book-writing stuff going on at my blog. A little teensy-tiny bit of progress after 18 months of NOTHING. Drop on by and check out my update. Hopefully, I can be of help to you in the coming months, as you finish your first few chapters. :-)
