Taking a Deep Breath....

OK, I have decided (with some gentle nudging, subtle suggestion and some outright "do it already"s) to go ahead and post some chapters of the books I have written. What I can't decide is which to put up first. I had thought maybe I'd put the first couple pages of each, in separate posts, and see which gets the most response. Then we'll go from there.

This is really hard to do, for a lot of reasons. I'm terribly hard on myself, writing wise. I think I'm ok at it, but not terrific. I know I'm better with poetry and lyrics than with novels (yeah, I do music too. Usually love song sort of things. Never have done anything with those... again, that being overly harsh on myself thing.) But, in this whole re-do of things, part of this change thing I'm doing (why did I decide to do that again....?) I'm going to let it all hang out (so to speak... no nudity here, please move along) and just do it. But, that good old inner voice has me worrying about it. Which is why I have to suck it up and go for it. Nothing I've written is god awful (i don't think, anyway, LOL) but I'm not offering the latest best seller, or even thought provoking books here. It's just... something I do. : )

So, before the end of the day, there will be some pages of fiction. One story I love with all my heart, just for the telling of it. I've thought of revising it some, expanding it, making it more... because since it was written, there is more to say in these people's lives, these women's lives. : )

The other... eh. It was my first attempt at a supernatural thriller, and thrilled I ain't. but it's not all bad, either..... whatever. I'll let you guys be the judge of them, come what may.........
