Who Has Time?

Seriously...who has time to do the things they want? Work, studying, working out, eat, sleep. It seems I never have time to work on my current project and it drives me nuts. I haven't even been working on the synopsis for The First Romantic Suspense.
I want to be a serious writer, but where in my day can I fit it in?
The best advice I've heard is from both Janet Evanovich and Stephenie Meyer. "If you want to be a serious writer, be prepared to put in the hours." I can't even imagine how long it took me to write All That I'm Living For. Hours at the computer over the period of a year, but I don't have that kind of time anymore. Where did it all go?

Webinars are great resources if you want to learn more about getting your writing noticed. Click here for some of Writer's Market's new sessions. I plan to register for the Query Letter Makeover and I'll let you know how it goes.

Guide to Query Letters

Want to get your writing noticed? Get The Writer's Digest Guide to Query Letters. I learned so much more about pitching my novel to agents from just a few paragraphs in this easy-to-read helper. It also gives you step-by-step instruction of the publishing process and amazing tips on how to write your synopsis (if you need one). I have a copy you can borrow or you can buy it here.

Welcome to the Writer's Blog

So I made this as a place to keep you updated on my writing. Where I'm at in the writing process, contests I enter, tips for aspiring writers and resources. I've placed some up already. Check 'em out.
I moved the link to The First Romantic Suspense here and put up my cover of The Second Romantic Suspense.
Currently, I'm working on my synopsis for The First Romantic Suspense. I think I will wait to submit my manuscript to agents until I hear about the 2009 Gival Press Novel Contest I entered into. I should hear about the results this fall.
