So last week I wrote that I’d hit a wall on the 3rd book in the series. Was just flat stuck. I wrote the blog, and I wrote most of my presentation for Monday at the Creative Writing Department of the Fort Worth Woman’s Club. Both were necessary, but they weren’t the book.
Strangest thing happened after I confessed to the road block. When I pulled up the doc on the computer, the words just tumbled out. From just over 4000, I’m up to over 11,000. Celebrate! Celebrate!
But then we must keep things in perspective. If the book will be approximately 80 thousand words, I’m about 1/10 of the way there. LOL But that’s okay, I’m writing again. 🙂 #amwriting
Monday, I drove to Lewisville for a book signing at the Public Library. In the past that’s taken about 1 ½ hours from my house with ghastly traffic. Since I attended last year, an Express Lane has opened on 820. Wow what a difference that makes. I got to the Best Western Hotel in one hour and didn’t have to cross any ungodly high bridges. 5 Books!
Last year Bob went with me, but he had a conflict on Monday, and I just didn’t want to do that drive back at night by myself. The traffic flies and I don’t read the signs well at night. So I stayed the night and returned on Monday. Not as early as I wanted, but more about that later.
It was fun to see a few writer friends, some other friends, and to meet new folks. The authors who attend write everything. (I bought 3 children’s books for the grands!) But because of that, potential buyers are diluted as opposed to a book signing with only romance readers. I have more success at that kind of book signing.
