What's the one thing about your writing career you regret the most? Were you able to overcome it?

My biggest regret was putting my writing on the back burner. 

At a young age I liked scripting plays and performing them with friends. As a teen, I wrote short stories and even submitted a few to magazines. Then came marriage and 5 children. My life was full. 

Not until my children were teenagers did I put my pencil to paper and wrote my first book, Wickedly They Come, a christen fantasy. 

I can say I did overcome that obstacle. I guess age doesn't matter when it comes to writing. 






 Polish those manuscripts and
get those pitches ready to throw at the pros.

Dec. 1 question: In your writing, what stresses you the most? What delights you? 

After many drafts and hiring a professional editor, those darn typos stress me to the max. And when I use precious time writing 10k - 30k on a story and then decide it's not working and scrap the entire thing. Ack! Also, when I feel the need to rework scenes to the point of exhaustion. There is a moment when I have to say enough is enough. 

Delightful, is constructing a decent plot. Or when a smile has its way on my face while I'm rereading certain passages that I really like. And then I say to myself, "I wrote that!"

November 3 question - What's harder to do, coming up with your book title or writing the blurb?

Honestly, both. However, after the novel has been through many drafts and has been edited, I can usually create a blurb. So, in the end, I guess it's the Title that gives me the most angst. Even now, I'm in the midst of racking my brain for a title for my newest and completed manuscript. 


What do you find harder: The Blurb or The Title?
