Writing a Book

The other day, I gathered together all those craft books that I kept asking myself why I bought, sat on the couch, and read. I read How to Write Science Fiction and Fantasy by Orson Scott Card and Beginnings, Middles, and Endings by Nancy Kress, both of which have valuable information in them. Since I have yet to attend the first official meeting of my new critique group, I had to do a little self-workshopping.

The next day, I sat at the computer, took out page one, and revised.

And revised.

And revised.

The wonderful thing is the sense of satisfaction I’ve gained. I feel as though, up to this point, I’ve been telling a story.

Now, I am writing a book.
