You can do it! The reward of seeing your name in print is more than worth it!


Good luck! You can do it! Congratulations on the contract! That's huge and so cool!

Didn't you ever get that voice activated typing program to work? Why are you typing you should be dictating and having someone else type. Outsourcing! Heck outsource a chapter or two to guest authors.

Don't say I never help you out!!


I think its better if you have a deadline..but this one is harsh..still i am sure you will make it. Someone is publishing your first book!! Write glory :)
And to defend your wife, your point about you being on the sideline...Sir i am sure there will be a case when in a coversation you go "ok", "ok", "ok"....thats how marriage works ;)


National Novel Writing Month ???
What the heck ? Why don't I know about that ?

Well, I do now :)

Thanks Mountain Girl !

Uncle Bill, since you're still blogging, you obviously have too much time. I think you should spend that time writing proposals for your next book and sending them to publishers :)
Good luck with the writing

Holy crap, Bill, you should have asked me about the contract first. That's an incredibly tight deadline. Of course you can do it.

Mountain Girl

You can do it! A few years ago, I participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and finished a novel in 30 days. It wasn't a best-seller, but I got my word count ;)

If you need a cheerleader, I'll be here!
