Entry in my day journal this morning: Today is the day. I will finally complete the Inspirational Book for Women I’ve been working on for more than a year (Okay, a year and a half – really? It’s been that long? Oh for goodnes sake, it can’t have been that long? Sigh. That long!)
So today’s the day. I hope. Maybe. I open my Scrivener program (See? Serious intentions going on here!) and read through portions of the latest draft. I’m slightly intimidated because the outline I sent to the publisher (Who suggested I write this book, for goodness sakes!) and discussed, at length, with her (the one she approved) just barely resembles what I’ve actually written.
Another sigh, here. But I am writing in the method I feel will be the best way to achieve my personal goal with this book: To actually make a difference. Not just another self-help, you-can-do-it type of book, but one that stands alone because the reader identifies and connects with me, the author, and what I’m saying.
So, with the best of intentions, I’m going to finish this. Okay, right after I write this blog post. But then I am, for sure.
end of entry
I hope everyone is gearing up to have a great weekend! I’ll be writing, but still having a good one – take care of you,

Good luck Penny! I have had a lot of good intentions about writing but haven’t gotten as far as blog posts yet.
Still struggling, LuAnn but eventually … and you will too, my friend, everything does have it’s time, even our creative efforts! 🙂
You go girl. I am so proud of you.
Thank you, my loving sister, still a bit of a ways to go but am cranking it out now, so hopefully …

Thank you so much. This one is really hard! 🙂
By now, you’re completely finished — so CONGRATS 🙂
Wellllll ….. mostly, gosh, darn it’s hard to give advice to other women. The kind they can really do something with, I mean … not the same ol’ same ol’ . 🙂
I imagine it would be difficult, but I think your optimism and positivity will carry the day. 🙂
Good luck Penny, and try not to get distracted by the shiny things 😉
Too late! 🙂
