So you want to write a book Part IX

So I have been using FB as a tool to tell my journey and it is practically blog posts I have been creating, so why not do it here. That is what I am going to do going forward and will post the link on FB. Makes sense.....right?

I gave myself  "off" for over a week now enjoying the ride of being a newly contracted author. To recap--I created a FB author page, I set up new email accounts, I joined Twitter, launched a website and am blogging. There is nothing left to do right? Wrong. It's Friday and I really have to get back to untitled book # 3. As mentioned in yesterday's post a writer must write because I know I don't and I am sure authors feel the same, no one wants to be a one hit wonder.

This week I received my edits from Books We Love. As I already mentioned on the FB they weren't bad compared to stories I have heard from other authors. With any luck I will have the edits completed this weekend. Edits are done in word format using the track tool. This can be daunting to those who have never used it before. I have experience and use it myself when I judge writing contests. Some authors receive layer upon layer of changes in their edits or have them sent back multiple times. Though I am pleased with the amount of edits I need to review and decide whether or not to accept, I hope I do not fall into that category.

On another note, I think I will be updating my website photo this weekend. Is anyone else like me who feels they are photogenically challenged?

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Hope to hear from you. Comments?
