About Me

My photo
Aspiring writer is the commonly used title for someone like me but I'd prefer story teller. Presently I'm working on my first manuscript. Glad you stopped in, follow my writing journey I'm sure it will have a little bit of everything.

Pitch in the horizon (deep breaths gigi)

Been trying my best to get myself ready for the writer's conference next month. It's been crazy I have so many other things going on. But here's the gist of what's up.  I tweeked the end of book 1 to something that would leave you wanting to pick up book 2. I stole some stuff from book 2 that I think works.  I'm once again rereading from the beginning, for the most part I'm leaving it as it is. Ok that's a lie, I am trying to leave it alone but I can't help myself I'm making little changes. Little ones.

I now have to schedule an appointment w/ one of the literary agents attending the conference to pitch my book. That's been my goal for this year, a lot of things have come up that are interfering w/ that but I'm trying my best to stay focused on that.

My business cards came in they look pretty good, I'll probably end up making changes on it but right now it works for me. I'll post a picture next time around.

That's it kiddies, sorry for the wait.

Story Teller's Business Card

Over the weekend I wrote some really good stuff about past lives. Will tell you about it another day because right now I'm stressed out working on my business card.

I've been putting it off because I just feel silly doing it. Turns out that if I want to be taken seriously I should be prepared and have one to pass out at meetings and especially at the conferences like the one coming up next month.

Makes a whole lot of sense because when someone has asked for my info I've found myself scrambling for a piece of paper to write on (then cross my fingers that they'll understand my chicken scratch when they read it later).  Not exactly professional. Yes the novice in me always showing :) but I'm getting there.

Like I said I feel silly creating one because c'mon lets be for real here I'm just a story teller not a writer writer. Yes I know I have to get over that inner struggle I have with that.

So I'm thinking ok what's the title I'll be giving myself??? It was harder than you think to chew on that, so in the end I opted for No title (yes no title) and just put the genre I write underneath my name. I think it's turning out pretty darn good. I intend to use the photograph's I own, wish I had more . As soon as I finish it I'll post it. 

After agonizing what info to put in it I've come to realize that I've been bitten by the social media bug. I now  have 2 blogs, 2 FB profiles, 1 website and 1 twitter related to my book.  That's just silly ain't it? When the heck do I write you ask. Whenever I can & whenever my home is quiet, which is usually between 12am and 6am and of course when I go to an undisclosed remote location where no one in my family can find me. 

So that's it kiddies. Sorry my post was lame this time around but this is how goes it for this story teller!!

Thanks for stopping in.
