Are you done yet?

Those who know me and let me say two words, and end up getting stories from my childhood to my life now, ask questions such as "Are you done yet?"  They are talking about my novels.

I never feel like my writing is good enough or ready, this why I am sharing this article Writing Life: Jilted – and Still Jazzed by Tina Lincer on Author; it hit a chord. I wrote every place and on everything I could find, from napkins to (unused) toilet seat paper. Finally, since I retired, and I can write most of the time in my office on my laptop or iPad, I am bogged by never feeling that my books are ready!  So, this article I'm Out of My Comfort Zone by Jill Jepson on She Writes set me straight. I am willing to post my synopsis and start sharing my books.  Hope you like the articles.

Share before publishing

This article [SWP: BEHIND THE BOOK]: SHELTER US, PART 2 Posted BY LAURA NICOLE DIAMOND on She Writes grabbed my attention. Laura tells how she shared her book Shelter Us before she published.
I have shared the coming out of VIRGINS, my paranormal breakthrough novel, and the first in my ROLO series, for several months. I am still working on edits after I sent it yet another editor and friend I really trust.
Once done, I think I will download the first few chapters, about 30 pages into a PDF, and offer them for free. To those that read them and send me a review, I will provide the rest of the book on a PDF for free.

From She Writes, 52 goals

My first thought on Brooke Warner’s post on She Writes, 52 THINGS—IDEAS FOR WRITERS FOR 2015, was this is ridiculous. But as I read the list I realized that I have already done most of it and in some cases more. That the things I have not done are worth looking into.  Thanks Brooke!
I think that as writers the only way not to get discouraged is to see ourselves as mangers and workers at our own business. Hope you have a great 2015!
