Gotta Get It Done!!

I’ve come to the critical point in my book where I have to put all hands on deck, and  I have to stay focused. As much as I can stay in my book world, the better. I really enjoy blogging, but I may have to step back from it over the next couple of weeks or month.  I tend to think about my next blog post and I lose some time on my book and at this crucial point, the finishing of my book, I think it deserves 100% of my thought process.

I don’t think I’ll fall off the blogging world completely, just a little less time, that’s all. If something comes to mind and smacks me in the face, I promise to share it. Sundays are a “fun” writing day for me, so I’m betting that will be the way I take care of my blogging needs.

This blog is important to me. The process of writing a book is very involved, and lots of times, it’s very private. So, sharing my experience is therapeutic, and the fact that I need to buckle down and finish the book is just a part of the process. I wish I was good at multi-tasking, but I’m not. I get distracted easily and knowing this about myself, Amelia’s Stoweaway has got to take the front seat for now.

Wish me luck. This is a very exciting time for me. I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would be in this place, at this time.  I have worked hard at putting thousands and thousands of words together to make a good book. Finishing will allow me to move forward with more challenging feats. Taking it from my computer to your hands is a big task that I look forward to conquering.

My journey of writing Amelia’s Stoweaway will not end with the last word that I type. The journey will not end at all. It will always be a part of my life and heart.

Until next time…

    Amy, do you have a “finish date” in mind? What about a release date?

    • Hey Rebekah! I hope to finish within the next month. After that, the editing, rewriting, and finding a self-publisher starts. So, I have no clue how long that will take. The first book is always a “guessing game”. Hopefully with the books to come, I will have a better handle on the process!

  2. Hi Amy! So glad I found your blog; I’m blogging about my first book, too, and it’s nice to know I’m not alone in the process! Good luck,
