Lottery


Okay, she wrote the book in 3 months?! Now, I've got to read it! How? How do people do that? Do I need to move to Hawaii? Because I would. For my art, I would suffer like that. My friend Marisol wrote The Lady the Chef the Courtesan in 3 months working in the coffee shop at the Tattered Cover. Okay, if coffee drinking and sea air are what it takes....

I have to put my fingers in my ears and start chanting LALALALALALALALALA when I hear things like that. I don't know if I could ever develop the ability to work that quickly. Maybe in time. It seems like right now I have this iterative process of let it flow, then stop, analyze, edit, think, move on, add more, edit analyze. I guess I'm still finding my process :)

I know, I don't know how anybody writes a book in 3 months!

I just want to say that I have been working on my just completed WIP for 2 years. My first novel which is not complete, I worked on for 5 years. I find it quite astounding that people can write so quickly and come up with a great story.

That's how I face most things in life: fingers in ears and singing. ;-)
