With the numerous re-writes I have done to part 1 of my great American love story I wonder if I will ever finish it!
No one ever says to you when you aspire to be a writer that it is going to be a series of writes and re-writes and more re-writes. The movies and books I have read about authors all paint it as easy as sitting in front of a window with a view and having it all pour out of them right into a best seller – HA! Not so much!
It’s hard work! Of course it’s hard work that I love and had no idea I would love. I have always known since I was a little girl that I wanted to tell my stories in the written form, but editing and trying to make them better were always so much of a bother to me. Now that I really have something of substance to work with it’s actually kind of fun! And I have to give my friends at CW props, because they are helping me through this step by step.
Just as so many other times in my life I thought I knew everything, I realize now how very little I know:) Just part of growing up I guess. Being 32 I thought I was grown, but apparently I have a lot to learn yet! Be patient my name will be in enormous block letters at the top of a best selling novel yet! One can dream anyway:)
