Story of my career as a writer.



  1. But at least you know what doesn’t work and why, right? 🙂

    Like La Nora once said, “I can fix crap, but I can’t fix a blank page.”

  2. Lynne, I really like that saying from Ms. Roberts. Too bad I find it so hard to follow!

  3. I agree, but I also have a habit of deleting huge sections of my books. Still, a ghost of a page is better than a total blank.

  4. I am dying of curiosity. Why do people keep surfing into this post? There’s nothing here, yet it looks from my stats like this has been bookmarked.

    If you’ve surfed in, could you contact me at and tell me why?
