“The only way you can write the truth is to assume that what you set down will never be read. Not by any other person, and not even by yourself at some later date. Otherwise you begin excusing yourself. You must see the writing as emerging like a long scroll of ink from the index finger of your right hand; you must see your left hand erasing it.”

— Margaret Atwood (The Blind Assassin)

I have told very few people that I am writing a book. Some people I’ve told face to face and they sometimes say “that’s nice”, but most always change the subject. Most of my immediate family knows. When is the appropriate time to tell my other friends and acquaintances? What am I hoping to gain by telling them? Do I want something from them? Is that greedy? /sigh

I guess it is ok to bring up if asked “whatcha been up to?” Maybe when I get close to publishing I can tell my Facebook family? How have other people dealt with this?

This has been a good break. I’ve read three books, reviewed them, and am finishing up a fourth (Cory Doctorow – Little Brother). Hoping to finish this book by Saturday night so I can pick back up the editing process on Sunday.

Here’s hoping!Image

I have decided about my controversial topic. I’m keeping it in. This is not a light thing for me. Once the book is published (self-published), I may lose some of my current friends. Not my goal, but I need to be true to the story. Phew. It’s still scary for me.

Fear Not, Just Believe. Faith is the antidote to fear.

STEADFAST

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
