Stop the drama and pass the spinach please

After all the drama of the weekend, I’m super-happy to post some down-to-earth, regular-but-exciting writing news. That last bit sorta rhymes… hmmm. Relax, I’m not about to sprout poetry at you, but I do want to share some progress.

It is time for an update for those of you who cheered me on as I announced my intention to grow up and stop being such a baby (you can read about that here if you missed it). I am 98% done with project number 1! Waiting for review notes to come back, then one quick round of edits and it is FINISHED.

Project number two… is a e-book for ICDF on starting and running a dance group. This is a side of me that you don’t really get to see here on Doodles, but if you are interested, you can have a peep at my group here. Dancing is a passion of mine that has quietly burned throughout the years and has simply never left. It is good for my body, soul and spirit. 🙂

Back to the booklet – I have done a comprehensive content & chapter breakdown and am working my way through writing it, one section at a time. At the moment it still feels like wading through a giant plate of spaghetti, but I know it will become more ordered as I write. I think the key with this one is to just keep writing and sort it all out afterwards.

Aaah! and of course… constantly lurking on the fringes of my mind, like a dancer patiently waiting for her turn in the spotlight – book number 2. 

Wow. Who knew that being a grown up and sticking to ones own rules… would be so hard?

  1. These are really great things. I’m very impressed 🙂

    1. Aaah Kate – thank you. I’m grateful for opportunities that have found me. 🙂

  2. Good for you. Perseverance is the key to success in the publishing business,or so they tell me. Still working on that here.

    I went to your link to see your group, but it’s Facebook and it wants me to log in.
    I’m not (and never will be) a member of Facebook — am I out of luck or should I adopt some sleezy internet personae sign up, and log in?

    1. Hehe Jim! You make me laugh. Tell you what… I’ll save you from degenerating into a sleezy fake FB personae and do a post on my group one day. Just not today. 🙂

  3. They never taught us about adult responsibility in school did they?

    1. Not at all. Tut-tut!

  4. what a wonderful accomplishment! yay for you!! 🙂
