Gotta Write...

"Write what you care about and understand. Writers should never try to outguess the marketplace in search of a salable idea; the simple truth is that all good books will eventually find a publisher if the writer tries hard enough, and a central secret to writing a good book is to write on that people like you will enjoy." - Richard North Patterson

Just a quickie this morning ... I want to write! The story I'm working on right now is FUN and that's a good thing.

So, I've been invited to blog at a group blog. I'd only be blogging once a month, so I said yes. I think I can handle once a month... guess we'll find out. I'll give you more deets when things are finalized.

My dog is incredibly lethargic. Well, for her. For instance, we went to the dog park yesterday to play, and after only an hour she ASKED to go home. She was exhausted, but everytime she'd lie down, someone would pounce on her. Finally, she just walked to the gate, sat and waited.

She doesn't ask to play during the day, though she's always up for a walk. It's just really odd, because she's usually such a high energy dog. It's got to be the antihistimes. She probably feels like I do when I take cold meds (which is why I seldom do). But, hey, she's not scratching...

That's it from me today... I gotta go get words to paper (or... um... computer screen).

Have a great Sunday!


Your Road is Paved With Determination

You are a person of substance. You believe that character is important, and you work hard to do the right thing.

You don't mind doing what needs to be done. In fact, you tend to relish responsibilities and work.

You are tough. You don't complain, even when you are dealt an unfair hand.

You deal with life's ups and downs like a champ. Even if you have to pedal uphill for a while, you know it will be a sweet ride down the hill!

Actually that's pretty close (though I do complain to select people...)

Happy writing, Marianne! There's truth to that quote, I believe. Whenever you read (or write) something that seems to be written because it's trendy, it will always sound false and forced.

Have fun writing and I can't wait to hear more about the story you're working on.

re quiz: Same as yours. It is mostly me.

Have a great Sunday.

Have fun writing!!!

Poor Dakota. While it may be restful for you, it's probably frustrating for her. :)

Awww, I hope Dakota gets her spunkiness back soon!

My quiz results are the same as yours and Dru's.

Hope the writing goes well and that you have a Blessed Sunday.
