Writing Again

Its been quite a while since I have written anything and I decided it was time that I started up again. I am not happy with the way my Atlantis book is coming along and have to decide which way I am going to go with it. Between that and work I haven't been writing like I should be. I listen to these authors who have written books that have made it to the best sellers lists and they talk about writing for 5 - 8 hours a day. Unfortunately, I can't do this as I have a full time job, kids and hubby, but I am trying to write for at least an hour a day. If I can accomplish that then I should be able to get my book done and start reviewing it and cleaning it up within 6 months. I am trying to find a writing group, but it isn't the easiest thing to do as I live in a smaller area, but I will continue looking. Hopefully with spring here and the weather warming up, I can get the bug back to write again. I might but Atlantis aside for now and work on a book idea that my hubby gave me. It would be a different pace from what I am used to as it is a horror book, but that might be what I need. Let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions.

As the book progresses I will let you know how it is coming along.

Take Care

Hey Patti! Thanks for checking out my site and blog. I live in Michigan too, where abouts are you? Kalamazoo here.

I also have been struggling to get back to writing. I moved back here in August, got a job and things have been petering out creatively. I need to rejuvenate those juices. I'm hoping the sun will help!

Btw, there are some good writing groups you can join over the internet, if you like that kind of thing, but it isn't a substitute for face to face by any means.

thanks for the visit and comments. I am in Kalamazoo also. What kind of writing do you do? Look forward to hearing from you.

I write urban fantasy, sci fi, some horror, some light romance--some quirky stuff that doesn't fit in anywhere. Do you have a critique group?
