My apologies for having to put this msg here, however I've been having problems with editing my page, and receiving and sending emails such as this one from my profile page. Please help when you can. I appreciate it.
This is Laila. I hope you still remember me. I finished my memoir. It is called "Out from the Shadows of Men". It took me a long time to finish. It was professionally edited by an ex-acquisition editor at Harper Collins in SF. It is now with an agent in New york. I would love to send the ms to read. The memoir is about women in Egypt. The story of my sister and me. I also want to let you know that I plan to be in NY for the first time ever in October, and I would love to come and meet you in person for five minutes.
As for your writing block. It happens to me a lot because I am not the type that sets time fir anything. Writing comes spontaneously to me. But a quiet place and music I love helps bring out the desire to write. Take a break fromwriting and you will miss it. Also find a writer friend you enjoy being with and invite her or him to write together in a quiet area in your home with soft music and a glass of wine. Then read to each other what you wrote. It works. Try it.
I miss you
Oh man, I didn't even read your comment until now. Looks like I missed the boat! Thanks for letting me know about this event; hopefully, I'll log in here more often so I can keep up with future happenings.
Thanks, Kamy! I loved seeing Christina. You can't believe how amazing she looks! She was more like a beautiful hostess in her living room rather than a chemo patient. In any event, my email address is email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from your managing editor.
I haven't been on SheWrites much lately. Been busy doing my own "thang" I suppose. I'm curious as to what my SheWrites friends are up to, writing-wise, though. Right now, I'm waiting to hear back from 2 agents who have requested my full manuscript of The Time Minders. I'm still working on Kingdoms of Blood & Magic, but not as diligently as I should, since I've been querying/submitting for the TTM, doing scads of tutoring at my daughters' school and work for our church's youth group. How about YOU?
It was great to meet you, Kamy. I wrote up my AWP highlights which were many and varied. If you want me to post this on my She Writes blog, I can do that but it would probably be seen by more She Writers if you figure out to do a highlighted post? Let me know if you want me to resend in a different format!
As promised Kamy here I am checking in on you (and 9 others) to see how you are coming along with your three wishes! Actually, I’ve been reading here and there about you, but just the same wanted to thank you for this wonderful post. It’s been the one thing that really has kept me motivated, so I can only imagine what it has done for so many other women.
Great job…we’ll be on the lookout for that television pilot, as SheWriters is already proven to have its niches of supportive writers! ;-)
