"Story of Our Days: possible memior or biography of a family. It would depend on the back blurb, what it offers me, the cover would also make me wonder...would it be dark or something on the lighter side. On my bookcase, I realize my books are…"
"Sorry to have been absent for so long; as everyone knows, life sometimes takes precedence over writing. I’m looking forward to going to Killer Nashville next weekend. I need to spend time with sane and reasonable writers. Good conferences and…"

A recent writer's/reader's group discussed this very thing. Several newly published authors were talking about what they wish they had known several things, when it came to being published. I'm going to forward this to…"

"I have an advantage over a lot of writers. I'm the single cat lady in my family. I use writing as a stress reliever after taking care of my 96 year old grandmother (dementia is fun and can be funny-please don't think I'm being mean- I…"
"Generally, I try to write 2-3 hours every day. On a good day I can get up to 5 or 6 hours. It may be in short stolen increments, but I write everyday. I'm not the fastest writer, which is part of the reason I try to write as much as I can.…"

Welcome to She Writes - and glad to have you in the novelist group, Katherine! You might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on.
We do a live chat every Wednesday at 1EST; instructions on how to participate are in the "Our Water Cooler Wednesdays" box near the top of the group page. Hope you can join us for that.
"Shelah, I feel for you--how long have you been waiting for them to get back to you? I have only been waiting a week.
