“Get it Done Little by Little”–Novella Done

So, first things: good news. I’ve finished, proofed and reviewed by comedy-horror novella. In fact, I’ve just sent it off to a publisher. We’ll see what happens next. There’s not a HUGE market out there for comedy horror, but I’m hopeful.

In other news, I keep on trucking on. I’m getting some good feedback from my other stories and I’ll share things as they develop. I’ll also get back to some of the personal news that’s been getting me down lately in posts to come.

Right now though, I’m outside just enjoying the sun of a Saturday afternoon, blogging, and dreaming about getting back to writing first drafts. I’m so sick of the damn editing! Enough already! It’s time to let the first-draft wild dogs (or is it horses?) out and watch them “lap the Miles.”

More to come…


I was thinking of a song that captured what I felt in finishing this piece. That feeling of being triumphant, but drained. This defiant number from Bob Marley hits it just right.

“Let’s get it done little by little.”

Just remember, Ya’ll. Keep on trucking. Don’t give up.  Finish your piece.

Good Luck,

DJ

    Gosh, that’s good!
    I need to (somehow) turn my fiction into an E-book!

    Sophie,

    An E-book can be a great way to go. My first couple of works were all e-books I self-published.

    I would only suggest that when you finish you get someone to proofread it, get a good cover and maybe a professional e-book designer as well. I use all 3 for my e-books and I’ve been consistently happy with the results.

    Good Luck!
