This week I finished putting those pesky notes into my writer’s notebook file on my computer. Then I started a new writing project to keep me busy in between full-length novel projects. The all-powerful experts in the How-to-Write books claim that one should write something totally different as one is waiting for feedback to come from one’s beta readers. And so I started my “totally different” project by thinking up a pseudonym and taking author photos for that pseudonym (not of me) and messing with the line spacing button in Microsoft Word for over an hour (I can only function in Word 97) before I got a title page completed and a few bible verses looked up for a quirky and somewhat nauseating devotional book for teenage boys…thus the pseudonym. Anyway, I’m writing, I’m having fun, I’m practicing my craft. All that good stuff is steadily occurring despite the agonizing wait for feedback. And thus my devotional book is a success, even if no one but yours truly ever sees the results of my endless typing, research, and repeated pressing of the 1.0 button in the spacing section of the top bar.
