"You need a synopsis."
"You just need one."
"Do I hafta?"
"Yes. Are you listening to me?"
"La la la la la."
8 pm and a chilly 78 degrees (so soon we forget).
Like the seal we like to close our eyes to the obvious. Like when we have to take an active part in our writing career. We must make decisions that give us focus and lead us to the readers that will buy our books.
It is up to us.
"Is your book done?"
"Are you done with your edits?"
"Did you start your second novel?"
"I'm thinking about it."
Like a turtle. Close but no cigar. Don't be your own worst enemy.
Do you shirk from even starting your novel?
Not go in the water because you might get stung?
I want my accomplishments out there so everyone can see.
It may be leaving myself open to criticism.
Increasing my vulnerability.
I think ya gotta live life.
As Jack London said.
"I'd rather be ashes than dust..."
Thanks to S.G.F. and Dr. Ian for the photos.
See ya on Maui in September!
So what about Denver and Portland?
