Oh how time flies

December 31, 2007 at 3:12 am (blogging, rambling, real life, worries/concerns)

I can’t believe how quickly yet another month has flown by. I am sorry I missed the opportunity to wish everybody a very Merry Christmas – but better late then never, hmm? I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I know I did.

Now…there have been some changes in my spur of the moment plans. I don’t think I will be moving in with my cousin right now. Things have come up that make being further away from home a little difficult…so I think I’ll stay here….for the time being anyway.

Of course this means that I cannot work…for the time being anyway. Both my parents have fulltime jobs, and I don’t have a license so I can’t drive myself anywhere. It will be hard trying to find a job with no wheels, especially since I live out in the middle of nowhere.

But this means that I could work on my writing. I have an amazing idea for a novel, and I’m doing the background research and character development now. I’m also looking into getting it either self published or at least read by a publishing company. How cool is that? It’s always been a dream of mine to write books! Maybe I can get started on it!

And this also gives me time to think about other program options at other colleges…and maybe even throw in a surgery or something. Why not eh? If I have the time I should make use of it!

    It would be very cool to get your book written and published. It’s wonderful to see one’s name in print — but the writing itself is the real reward. The more you do it, the more you can do it.

    There’s a terrific book titled “Release Your Writing, Book Publishing Your Way” by Helen Gallagher, which takes you through manuscript preparation, publishing options (traditional, self-publishing, and the newest option, Print on Demand), and then explains how to market the book. It’s a wonderful resource. I’d already published my book by the time I read Helen’s book, but the marketing information was so valuable, I still consider it a wonderful resource.

    Good luck with your novel — and everything else.

    A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you! I’m happy that you’re getting some good news on your writing. I know you’ll do well in whatever you put your mind too.

    Why not try some paid blogging in the mean time? It can help pay the bills!

    Oh gosh did I really write “too” instead of “to”? Yup, my fingers are quicker than my mind, but then again a lot of thing are πŸ˜‰

    Waltzing Australia; wow, thanks for the suggestion – I’ll definitely have to pick up a copy of that book for myself!

    Connie; and a belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you as well πŸ™‚ Perhaps I will look into paid blogging…although I really wouldn’t know where to start!
