Gone for a bit

Well as you have probably noticed I have not posted in a bit. I could lie and just say I have been too busy, but the truth of the matter is that my weakness is self doubt. This means that I go through times when I wonder if it is worth it (by it I mean writing not life I am happy and enjoy life :) or if it really matters what I write or post for that matter. So this is not to gain sympathy only to let you know that I will get out of it soon and also to let you know that I have started a new project that I am very excited about. I have decided to get my name out there a little by writing a book entitled "How to Diagnose Your Character." It will be based off of my posts and other material and will  only be about 50 pages. I plan on self publishing it and seeing how it goes. It shouldn't take me too long to finish and when it is I would love to have some beta readers. Those who are willing to look at it from both a writer point of view and that of a non-writer let me know. So that will hopefully be happening by the end of this month or the end of the year. I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and that things are going well.

This will give all of my new followers a chance to go through my old posts and glean what they can :)

  5. I'm excited about your book. It will be good medicine for you. Just remember, when you are negative you cut yourself off from inspiration and opportunities. Find a reason to be positive and inspiration will follow you like a students to a great teacher!

    Peace and Joy be yours,
    ;D

  7. I often have these kinds of thoughts as well. And when I answer the question is it worth it? I can't think financial or the answer would always be no! And I try to remember that many of the greatest writers in history struggled to sell enough books to survive.

  10. Die Vampire Die. Kill those vampires in your head. I'm so insecure I never leave home without my stake and silver bullet.

    Left you a 'Lovely Award' at my site go check it out.

    If you don't know that Die Vampire Die reference go to youtube and checkout [title of show] die Vampire Die a very funny song about insecurities. WARNING - ALL THE BAD WORDS YOU CAN THINK OF INCLUDED, Don't listen if that will offend. This particular youtube did not 'card'me.I love it when they do that. Obviously,it's been along time.

  13. I'm excited for you! You've got a really great blog and can easily see how posts could transfer into a book. I'd love to be a beta reader - if you run past your goal - I'm bogged down with relatives, then hub and I are going to New Orleans for Christmas on Dec. 21, returning in January. I just self-pubbed and found that the end stuff took longer than I'd thought. Remember, the devil's in the details!!!
