Tiffy McKay | 6 comments Congrats! :D I'm in the middle of writing a children's book now. :) Less words does not make it any easier than writing a regular novel. XD Looking forward to your book. :D

Thank you! I know what you mean. The less words the more polished/better they have to be.

I'm doing NaNo too! This is my fourth year and, as usual, I am also behind! I'm about to his 10,000 before I pack it in for today, but I should be on 15,000. This happens to me every year, but you always find time to get it done by the end of the month!

beth (beth01) Yeah, I'm on 9,800

Hannah (blazestormchaser) | 4 comments That's so cool, Raegan! I'm also writing a book and hope to be an author someday! It's about 84 pages long so far, and it's a lot of work. It'll be worth it when I finish though. Thanks for inviting me to this group!

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.


message 35: by Juanita (new)

Juanita Ray (juanita_ray) Raegan, I wrote Moodessey in 1973, Just published in 2014. I wrote my children's picture books in 1986. Just published on 2014. The secret is write with passion. Once you write one book, if it doesn't make it ignore it and write the next one. Just keep writing.

D.K. Brantley (dkbrantley) So...your book published yet? Inquiring minds want to know!


message 42: by Tiffy (last edited Jan 04, 2017 01:17PM) (new)

Tiffy McKay | 6 comments Wow, it's been a long time since I've check up on these threads. Raegan, how's it going? What part of the process have you made it through? And have you worked on other stories you hope to get published in the meantime? :)

I ended up writing my children's story 3 times and then didn't bother editing it yet. I just shelved it. After that many rewrites I'm not sure I even like it, but it was a piece of my soul that needed to be expressed at the time. I spent the past two years or so working on a spiritual book about my experiences with people before they pass away, called For Love of Dying, which I just published last week. I decided to take the self-publishing route instead of waiting a few years to find the right publisher.

Feel free to private message me or send me an email if you want to talk, ask any questions, or have a second set of eyes on your work.

Hope all is going well in your life at the start of this new year. :)

~Tiff
