Just got to read your post. Great idea. I know I have picked up all the threads (my editor said so) but that is a great way to track tension, resolution, etc. Seems like a lot of work but worth it.
I do have two people from a former critique group and I just sent them the ms. I am just anxious to get going and do it so I can focus more on my new book. It's so frustrating to not be able to see what it right in front of me. I…"

Hi there -- just wanted to drop by your page and invite you personally (or at least virtually) to our first-ever She Writes Orlando Florida meetup, celebrating our first-anniversary! We are so grateful to the event's organizer, Kemari Howell, for taking a risk and stepping up to host. I hope you will support her and bring yourself and other women who write (no need for them to be members) to the Orlando gathering. At the meetup writers will take part in the She Writes "Book Communion," where attendees arrive with one book, their own or another She Writers', new or gently used, and leave with another book as a meaningfully way to support one another's work. We will also be blowing out a candle and making a wish for our upcoming writing year -- along with She Writers gathering in 16 cities around the country. I hope you will be part of this historic (well, at least kind of cool) occasion, and RSVP now to Kemari.
Oh my, a little about myself. I have written and deleted and written and deleted here, not sure what to say. Then I remembered I have an About Me page on my site that pretty much says it all. If you would like: http://debrakreps.com/about-me/
Sorry for the extremely delayed response. As you can see, the kids consume a great deal of my time. I'm back at work now so, my time is very limited. I have also been working on the layout for my website, writing queries and just finished my second set of edits. I feel like I have two full time jobs. How are things going with you?
I'm working on my first book of non-fiction,and am new to the game. I'm not sure if I should try to self-publish or get a literary agent. Any suggestions?
Also, are there any professional writers associations, you'd recommend? I see that you are part of the Florida Writers Association and International women Writers Guild. How did you get involved?
