For the last 5 years I have been trying to write a book.
And when I say "try" I use the term loosely. Like: "I never pick up a pen and start to write anything down" kind of try.
It's funny how slow everyday can be...but you turn around and it's been five years.
I can't say for sure that I will complete the book this year (because...well, I've already said that once - or twice). I can say, for sure, that all of my writing online has definitely honed in some skills I haven't had in a while. I used to write for days - and actually churn out quality material, without really trying.
I would write poem after poem, even creating short stories without knowing (for those that don't know - a short story is where Charles Fredrick Trendal was born).
I feel incredibly tuned in with those same creative thoughts.
So I'm opening up the notebook this week, and adding some pages to the book. (Currently 18,000 words)
Maybe, just maybe I can get this thing to come together. (I know Jen will be happy - she has read a book with no ending for 5 years!)
