So truthful and helpful. Another great blog from Kristen Lamb. Writing is like swimming up stream upside down. You have to just keep going, like Dori, and have blinders on. I have lost alot of friends by default because well, friends take time and they don’t understand it takes all your free time (and more) to write a book. I do have a few patient friends who have stuck with me from the beginning and they get it, I have to stay focused. I tend to be more productive in my writing first thing in the morning (and before dot (daughter) is home from school). So, for several hours I set “little deadlines” for myself, where I won’t get that cup of coffee or streudel until I’ve finished the next chapter. I find I get so immersed I forget about the coffee and then its already lunch time. I save the research for when dot is home and treat it like my homework. Great advice about the water too. Thank you. Kat Kent.

In the meantime? We have dreams…
