I just finished the rough draft of my second novel. It took me over 3 years and 98,000 words to get here.

I'll keep this brief for skimmer readers like myself.

My husband, also an author suggested I take a couple of weeks off, let my brain rest and then begin the arduous...

I have my motivation. I am ready to write my story.

My fingers are poised on the keyboard. My head is full of ideas. I have a blank page in front of me. A blank page. I stare at it. I type a few lines. Hit the back-space bar. Type again. Hit the back-space bar. I stare...

Well if you think my first Blog was when I began to develop my idea into a story, you'd be wrong. I am a procrastinator. I had used the excuse; I need to meet the character I envisioned for my story. And I had used that excuse for a long time.

I was introduced via email...
