Draft Writing Fool

Right now I'm in 100% creative mode, which means I'm a draft writing fool.  And I tell you what, I honestly forgot how much fun it was to put together a book.  To really dig in. 

I love the beginning when the pages need filled, and the ideas are coming, and hey how about this here or that will work great there.  Sure things need cleaned up later, but there's something neat about just getting it all on the page.

And I love that.



PS: Click It's Vomit Time for details about my book.

  3. I actually enjoy second drafts more than first drafts. Maybe because I can find all the mistakes I made in the first.

    1. Second drafts are great fun too. Every stage of putting together a book, for me, has it's fun. But it's been so long since I worked on a project this big, that I plum forgot just how fun it is.

    1. Thanks Ian. I can't believe I forgot how fun it is to write a book. Just to have a project to work of that size.

      How goes you?

    1. I think so. Though I hear so many writers agonize over the entire process and I think, then don't write. If they hate it that bad, then go do something else. Me, I'm having fun.

    1. It's a coupon book. Been working on it since I left my job, about three weeks now. I will go back and add, see last post to this post. Thanks for pointing that out. Cheers and boogie boogie.

    1. I write daily, but forgot how great a project like a book is. All the different stages. Fun stuff.

      You get snow today? We did, gone now.

    1. Tim read this comment out loud and said you sounded like me. I totally agree with you. Writing is the best, but it gets such a bad wrap when writers make it sound like the most agonizing job in the world. I never understood that because writing is so flippin' fun.

  9. Write, and then write some more!

    The puppy eyes on that header image are irresistable!

    1. Oh my gosh, Martha. It's so nice to have this time. Though I do gotta rest more. Today and yesterday doing laundry really pooped my spine out. But on the whole, lots of fun.

      Have a great weekend. Anything planned. Nothing here, maybe the bookstore one of the days, but other than, just looking forward to being with my honey bunny.

    2. Nothing planned. We'll just wing it, as my husband says. I do need a little relaxation time, as well. Been super busy as week and I'm tired.

    3. I love wing it weekends. Hope you get some rest in during your Wing it Weekend.

  12. Glad you're having such fun!

  13. Go, Whisk, go! The only time I complain about writing is when my neck and shoulders are giving me fits, like tonight. But DH pointed when I'm really into a new project, I don't move! I think I'm going to need to set the timers over the weekend to remind me to get up and stretch.

    1. No moving? I can see how the neck and shoulders would give fits.

  14. P.S. Have you thought doing a Bug and Wiggy calendar? That new picture of Bug is adorable!

    1. No NaNo for me. I thought about it but since I had already started this projects three weeks before, I just kept at my own thing.
