And When I Get That Feeling

May 18, 2011

I’ll probably write on or at least mention this topic often, because when I first discovered what was happening, it was a total “Aha!” moment.  The moment occurred shortly after I wrote my first novel in 2005.

This novel still sits as a manuscript because it’s 500 pages long in Microsoft Word and I haven’t gotten around to editing it despite the mammoth effort by my friend Corinne to proof-read it for me.  She’s been totally helpful over the years and was there to help me again for my second novel and I did actually edit it.  I really couldn’t have got it into paperback form without her help.  Everyone needs friends like this.and when I get that feeling word healing marvin gaye vox newman

In regards to that first novel, I was unemployed at the time and decided to remain so at least until I finally forced myself to get down to it and actually write at least one novel.  I didn’t know if I had it in me, because I was convinced I was better suited to short stories.  But luckily I set a goal and had the help of a nagging mother.  The goal was to treat it like a job.  I started writing at 9 am each morning, took two 15 minute breaks, a 30 min lunch and ended each day at 5 pm: 5 days a week from the beginning of May until mid-June until I was finished.
