Oh, cool! About four years ago a radio psychic (I called in to the radio station) told me my fifth book would be my most successful one. The host tried to convince me a radio DJ would make a great hero. :)

Hi. I'm fairly new here. I got a bit of writing in yesterdayand Thursday, and plan on doing more today. Also need to do some research on some of things I'll be touching on in the book. Heading off to the track in about 1/2 hr for a walk. Expect to do at least 5km.

Have you heard of Save the Cat? It's a way of outlining the beats of your novel. Actually, it's a way of outlining the beats of a screenplay, but works just as well for a novel.

I have been so bad lately! I am going to dedicate some serious time to outlining! I think I get hung up on the writing part when I don't know whats going to happen next, but I want to do the writing part, and not the planning that needs to take place first!

The one person I thought would help me referred my question to someone else and they got back to me. Have not heard from the other person. Boo.

At the office now, so hopefully can make some progress.

Not today but two nights ago yes. Putting together a quick reference guide on managing a particular patient group. Typed 4 double spaced pages in my rough draft. Love how it is going and where it is going. Also sent 2 emails requesting detailed info from some military resources. One i know and believe she will help me. The other i do not know so he may not help. Looking forward to hearing from him either way.

Could be a bust and could be something tbat will go viral in our military community...

I was editing a scene last night when the heroine decided she wasn't neurotic enough and freaked out. Uh... okay, then. I guess I'll add to it.

I worked on my book this week. It is about finding fulfillment in life not working, whether one is disabled, retired or a stay at home mom or dad. A bit on the religious side I recently decided. It just wasn't cutting it without the mention of God and the holy rosary. It is such an immersed part of my very life that I cannot deny how much it lifts me up as I praise God. But the book is filled with much about all the fun things we don't get to do when we are working, like gardening, hiking and doing spontaneous things like go to La and visit an old dear friend who is our priest. We live 2 1/2 hours away!
The book is filled with so much and examples of my own life and others who have inspired me through their writing such as Gandhi and Thoreau.
I am not quite ready to share my draft but it is getting closer as I finetune the chapters.
Sparkcheers!

If it's about getting your oral-ness in shape, then I think it's perfect!

I was listening to a workshop once about getting people to read your stuff, and one thing it said was people like lists. Like, Seven Things to Do for Diabetes Oral Fitness or something like that.

Did some more background research and I'm thinking of the following title:

Diabetic Oral Fitness


It makes "oral health" more interesting and fresh. Also it moves away from "oral wellness" which has some negative connotations in the natural/whole health movement. This is my perception of what I'm reading at least.

What do you think of the title?

I've been trying to work an hour a day on my second book.

It's been a month since I published my first book, Santa Baby. My sales are low and I still have no reviews on any of the outlets it's for sale on. I have been selling print copies myself (hubby even sold a few at his work). This has been a huge learning experience. I did the whole thing backwards. But I was SO thrilled to have a finished, publishable book that I did just that. I publish with no marking plan in place. That won't happen again!

To everyone here just starting out...keep at it! It's such a thrill to see your name list on a published work!

Hey everyone! It's been like forever since I've been on Spark. I was really into focusing and my writing and dealing with real life. But I'm trying to get back to Sparking.

As for my writing, on Tuesday (10/06) I published my first book, Santa baby. It took me a year and half or so but it's out there now! I have it wide on Kindle, it's also on iTunes, B&N, and Kobo.

Right now I'm trying to get an Author's page working. But WordPress is NOT cooperating with at all. GRRRR

So I hope to be back here on more timely basis.

I really appreciate this discussion to support one another to write every day. I need it. Very cool to hear about the 100x100 challenge. Would love any/all resources for support to get writing on one's book. There are days where I get so much done then far too many days where I get nothing done. Thanks. :) It inspired me to read the suggestion to write even just 100 days on days you feel like doing nothing. That is far better than doing no writing. Just like they say, even one yoga pose in a day is better than none at all.

That's great! I've done 100x100 challenges, where you write at least 100 words per day for 100 days. It doesn't seem like a lot, but MAN, on those days when you don't want to write? Oy.

I've been plugging away at a novella, and ideas on how to fix my novel came to me. But I want to finish the novella's first draft before going back to novel. I don't do well when I write more than one story at a time, especially if they are in the same genre.

Oh, yeah - never send it to just one. Especially because of the waiting involved.

what genre?

Dreaded middle indeed...

My MS is still being considered by a publisher---but my coach and I are getting impatient so plan to send it out to more potential publishers. Before I do that I'll re-read it which means more edits because it could always be better...sigh.

I did!

I started a new job on April 18. Since then, it's been hard to write. At the end of the day, I'm exhausted. I had forgotten how taxing it can be just to learn new things all day long.

However, I'm back to final edits on my MS before I send it off for editing and cover design. I fixed the outline, and now I'm matching the story. Chapters 1-4 were just fine, minor tweaks needed. Chapters 13-29 are the same.

Chapters 5-12 had to be completed scrapped and re-written, keeping in mind that they still needed to tie the beginning and end logically together.

I've been working on two chapters a week, and I've finally gotten to chapter 12. It's all downhill from here.

You know, I've never done a crossover. The "Sons" story I did was, I think, my emotions' refusal to accept what happened in the season finale. Don't get me wrong; I thought the finale was fantastic, but I wrote a little ditty to fix the one thing that kind of hurt my heart.

I tend to write stories that arise in my mind and evolve naturally before I put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard, I suppose). I wouldn't be opposed to a crossover, but my mind hasn't hit me with anything yet.

A "Hawaii 5-0"/"Sons" crossover could be pretty fun, though!

This one is "Grimm", although he's now revising my third "Hawaii 5-0" fanfic that I finished a while back. I've also written stories for "The O.C.", "Glee", and "Sons of Anarchy" fandoms.

I've finished re-writes on my first 6 chapters.

23 to go.

I also had a long discussion with a friend about my weird west book. I like the main characters, the setting and the world, but I was having real problems with a villain. In about 30 minutes of discussion with him, I cleaned up my plot problems and now I actually have a bad guy who is going to be very entertaining to write, and a mystery that practically writes itself.

I need to collaborate with him more often.

Good luck!

I'm writing one of *those* scenes, and it's a little more ... um... intimate than what I usually write. Finding the right words... oy. It's hard. Pun maybe intended.

I haven't worked on any of my projects for a while, but I dreamed a fix that may finally pull my 1st novel together. The villain's side of things didn't make a lot of sense, and I finally figured out what was missing in his plan. Once I fix that, I think I've got a winner.

It's out on submission to two publisher open calls right now. I had to submit a full plot summary on each of them, but the summary was so short I glossed over a lot of what is going to change and focused on the MC's journey. So, if one of those open calls ends up asking for a full MS, I'll be able to send them a better one than I had, and it won't contradict the material I've already submitted -- I hope.

I got stopped dead in my editing process when I realized I needed a scene from my hero's POV. And I don't know what to do with him. The heroine has kicked him out and he has to go back home, but that doesn't take an entire scene. *sigh*

Oh, yeah. It's nice now that I've got the big things covered - I know how grammar works and my point of view is clear (usually) and I know my characters. But I forget the little bits of internal emotion and making the setting clearer. *I* can see it, so I forget to write about it.

AB: My reply to you: Maybe they have high expectations of you now. So, it is a flattering thing.


I'm not exactly 'writing'. I've been taking my story and making it into an e-book. I've finally submitted it, but the 'meat grinder' didn't like it. So, back to fixing it. Then submitting it again. back and forth and waiting. Much waiting.

In the meantime, I've been researching for one of my story ideas. Interesting.....
