Regretful Report

     My thoughts after writing the last post: "Yeah, sure, I'll post when I send the book proposal out. I'm almost done. Probably be able to send it out tomorrow..." Ha! No such luck! 
     I regret to report that, yet again, I sit here nearly a week later with the book proposal still unprinted. Time has slipped through my fingers once more, and I am shaking my fist in fury at it.
     There just seems to be always one more thing that needs to be fixed in the proposal. I am particularly struggling over the summary. Just when I think I've got it perfect... I find out different! One thing after another. Will I ever get this thing out?
     I have everything ready, I even have the envelope to send it in! But the proposal itself is still being... erm, edited (if you can edit a book proposal). 
     So, I'm going to ask you to pray for me. I should have been asking you from the very beginning, but that's a different issue with pride and relying on my own strength.... Please pray that God will help me just be able to find the time and the brains to work through the proposal and get it out! Thanks, I really need it.

I know how you feel, Storyteller, I haven't had a good writing day in weeks. I know you are writing something completely different from what I am, but still :)
I'm praying for ya dude!

Storyteller said...

Thanks, dudette! *laughs* Seems we're all in a writing cramp. I'll pray for you too.

Yes, I seem to not be able to convince myself to write this next chapter, argh! It's SO slow compared to the others, but I feel that once I get in the 'mood' I'll be able to get it over with. Hopefully that 'mood' is tomorrow night or soon after.

Yeah...I'm being a wimpy writer too lol

But hey ST...if you need a second opinion on your summary...I wouldn't mind taking a look at it. Maybe someone else honestly telling you it's good, as I'm sure it is, will set your mind at ease.

I'll get you feedback too if you'd like.

Take care!

Yes, Seth, it is difficult to get into the right mood. But don't worry about being slow; I know an author (well, not personally) who has taken YEARS to write a four book series. And I took over a year to write the book I am trying to publish. Practice is the only thing that will help you write faster, and even then maybe not. But don't worry, it doesn't matter how fast you write; what matters is that you ARE writing.
Thank you, Keeneye, I appreciate that immensely! I may want to e-mail it to you, we'll see how things work out. It is very kind of you to offer.

Seth said...

Yes, WTB himself said that he writes 1 page an hour on average. I've gotten into the chapter now though and I believe it shouldn't take long to get it over with.

Storyteller said...

*cheers* Way to go, Seth!

Seth said...

Hmmm, interesting, this chapter took a different turn than expected, here's a basic summary of what's happening: Mando is camped in the middle of three mountains in a mountain range. Upon climbing the smallest mountains he sees at the very peak of the other two there are two statues. He goes and investigates (I'm not sure what they'll be yet, I write as it comes) and afterwards meets with some dwarves and men to begin the journey to the council of many clans.

Interesting...

Storyteller said...

*laughs* I love it when stories take their own turns! Very interesting indeed!

Nathan R. Petrie said...

Seth...quick idea (sorry for spamming your wall ST)

Don't reveal much about the statues lol...unless it is meant to be revealed...drop a clue...and fly past it ;) lol Like that one winding staircase :D

Storyteller said...

Don't worry about it, Keeneye. I'll get you back. :P

Seth said...

Yes, sorry ST, but I am compelled to reply...

I don't plan to do much about the statues, just make them mysterious and possibly have someone mention something about them that they remember, but can't recall anything. That usually makes ofr a good story
