Greetings, readers. I am very happy to announce that along with Bear Spring Camps book 2, I have begun another writing project which is more deeply personal. My writing assistant and I set up the outline yesterday and I have a pretty clear picture of how this book is going to look when it’s finished. That is a good thing.
Now for the bad thing. This morning at 7:30 I began writing and wrote approximately two paragraphs before looking at it and saying to myself this is bullcrap. It’s frustrating because even though I knew exactly what I wanted to say, for some reason it just didn’t want to come out. I’ve already told myself that tonight or tomorrow morning I shall try again with another story in the book. In first draft there really is no particular order that I must write these stories in. That’s the fun in editing. That is where boo-boos are fixed, flaws are unflawed, t’s are crossed, and i’s are dotted.
Now for a couple of particulars about this project, especially for my Facebook readers. This book is going to be a memoir of my life up to this point, ranging from my earliest memories of childhood through junior high and high school, and junior college and beyond. I wish to make it known quite clearly that I will use no last names unless I have express written permission to do so. This is not going to be a smear-all book.
I have absolutely no time-line for when this project is going to be finished but I can tell you this. Once I really get going on it, I expect it to flow. My editor, Rebecca, will then take over and smooth it out. I am estimating that this project will be completed and ready to be put on my CreateSpace.com e-store for sale in 12 to 18 months. I of course will keep you all updated. Please feel free to contact me with questions or comments. Until next week, take care and have a good weekend.
