Busy Busy Busy

“You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you’re working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success – but only if  you persist.”

~ Isaac Asimov ~

Words to live by.

You can ask anyone who writes, why do you write? You will get replies back like:

I have to.

Its a need.

It keeps me sane.

It gets the little voices out of my head!

What ever the reason is there is a drive that propels writers to jot down ideas, characters, story plots, snippets of conversations, etc down by pen and paper or  at a keyboard.

Where I am at right now is that I have three books that are in editing mode and my fourth one that I am finishing up. I was asked by a man who is a motivational speaker, “Yes we know you can write, but what are you doing with those novels you’ve completed? By sitting on them it’s like having a brand new car in the drive way with no wheels.”

That got me thinking he’s right. Sure I have sent out a manuscript to a publisher this year once. But that is not enough. This month I am busy busy busy with final edits on one of my novels, finishing up with my fourth book and seriously compiling a game plan for my manuscripts for the new year.

Come January I need to really work harder at getting published. Hopefully this time next year I can say “I AM A PUBLISHED AUTHOR! WOO HOO!”

I am also going to start posting some tips and things I learn along the way on this site too. In case anyone may be interested in doing the same thing.

So Happy Holidays!

Wish me luck!
