Work in Progress Wednesday

Quote of the day: Write even when you don't want to, don't much like what you are writing, and aren't writing particularly well. ~Agatha Christie

This week went okay. Not well, but okay :) I had a couple rough days, but did as Ms. Christie advised...and just sat and wrote. Some days it was torture to get out the few lines that stained my page. Other days, forcing myself to just sit down opened the floodgates and I beamed with pride when I finally put down the pen.

I am now on my fifth pen, 25 pages into my second notebook, and have an idea for a new book that is clammering to get out (but must wait until this one is done!) :)

In non fiction news - I had an idea for another book, one that I already have most of the material for. Don't know why it didn't occur to me before. So, I am working on getting the proposal put together for that and getting the manuscript pieced together and finished. I can do the non fic stuff while my kids run around, so I save the fiction writing for when they are gone or asleep :D

How is everyone else doing?

You're an idea machine! Fiction here, nonfiction there, hey I think I'll throw together a proposal. LOL.

I love Agatha Christie. Love her! Good luck with your proposal and keeping all of those other pent-up ideas at bay!
