So I spent my holidays celebrating Christmas, my 11th anniversary, and, mostly…working on CROSSED.
CROSSED, you say? That book you’ve been working on for 14 months now?
I am slow. I’ve mentioned before that I write at about a book-a-year-pace. So the fact that I’m (still) working on revising CROSSED is par for the course for me. I write just about every day (except for Sundays, and except for the 4-6 weeks I take off after finishing the full draft of the manuscript). So I put a lot of time in but I don’t write fast.
I am even slower at writing in my journal in that I never, ever, do it.
Which is why, when I saw this one sitting on the shelf at the bookstore, I thought, “Perfect for me!” I can write a line a day. I am all over that. And it can be anything–a funny kid quote, a menu, whatever I want.
And speaking of kid quotes…our family we say a goal and a hope for the new year at the dinner table on New Year’s Eve. When my oldest (age seven) said his “hope” for the year, it was, “I hope Mom finishes her book!”
Well played, kiddo. Well played. Me too.
What are your hopes and goals for 2011?
Also, P.S. I am going to start blogging on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the new year! (Let’s see if I can keep that up!) And I also posted the winners of SAPPHIQUE (see post below).
