Pump Up and Write Now - Monday

"Are you done, yet?" (says my kids, friends, husband)

As some of you may know I'm close to being done, as in the ready-to-query kind of done, with my YA paranormal thriller, UNTIL DEATH. But . . . I've been close for, oh, I don't know, maybe three months, now. Sometimes I wonder, will I eveeeer get there.

Then, while searching for something to post today I ran across this quote, which was a good reminder about the process:

"Start early and work hard. A writer's apprenticeship usually involves writing a million words (which are then discarded) before he's almost ready to begin. That takes a while." -David Eddings 

 So if you find yourself whining, like I was, er am, no, no, I'm not anymore, really, click onto the last Pump Up and Write Now post or email me and we can cheer each other on.

Now, go write!!! NOW!!!


  1. I'll cheer you on here because I already cheered you on there.
    I like these cheery posts and I love that quote.
    I've been working on my WIP for so long...2 years kind of long. At least. 2.5 maybe? Don't want to go there...ugh.

  2. How awesome you're almost ready to query. I know what you mean though about wondering whether you'll ever be done.


I heart comments.
