For everyone who has ever said she wants to write a book.
And for those who have written several books but need a little bit of a kick in the pants (namely, moi).
This year, I have a book that needs to be written. I have an actual, real life synopsis. AND I have an editor’s notes on that golden synopsis and the first three chapters (Harlequin Heartwarming Book 5: The best one yet).
There’s no way I can fail to finish this book in a month. (Frantically knocking on wood)
This is the Before picture of my desk. It’s been cleared of empty Diet Coke cans, dusted, and straightened. The papers are the golden synopsis and editor notes. That candy corn WAS the only candy in the house. It is gone now.
Are you writing, too?
Because I know me, I’m pretty sure I’ll fall short of the finish line, but I’m going to give it a shot. You’re my secret weapon. I’m telling you I’m going to do this in the hopes that it will make me actually do this. I will tweet occasional word count updates and put up a graph (EXCEL nerd!) at some point. Leave me a comment to let me know what you’re working on. Maybe we can run together.
