Writer Ready

16 March, 2013

Am I ready to stare at the Pacific Ocean for three days? Heck yeah. I’m always ready for that. We’ll be spending two precious nights in Cape Kiwanda, a name that’s sure to please. Isn’t that something Kathy Bates yells in Fried Green Tomatoes? Kiwanda! Close enough.
My book is more than two thirds written, in its first incarnation, anyway. The last third is poised to get out of my brain and onto the computer screen. My hopes are always high when I get away. I’d like to see dozens of pages added to what I’ve already written. But, beach walks with the pups and my partner beckon. Then there’s bird watching, and although taking time for a bird hike is always worth it, it takes a big bite out of a short stay. Then there’s that relaxing element which seems to elude me wherever I am, and always has.
But, the main character in my book is in a serious predicament, a life threatening situation, and really needs to get on with it. The next 100 pages will reveal all. Will the roughness of the surf filter through my brain into the story? Will a comet sighting over the Pacific horizon thrill this writer so much, an element of awe will insert itself into a scene? Geez, all I can do is hope.

    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your blog. You have some really good articles and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write
    some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please shoot me an email if interested. Kudos!

      Thanks for your interest in my blog! I appreciate your feedback and support. I checked out your site and am a bit confused as to what it is. All I saw was info on coupons. Do you do other sorts of writing I can take a look at?
