Around 6 months ago, I decided that I was going to do something totally new and totally for myself. I have always dreamed about doing some sort of writing, but I am actually not the greatest at writing. This puts a damper on things. I can talk in public, make charts, come up with stories in my head, but once I am really putting details to paper, I am not the best.
One of my ultimate goals is to get off my lazy ass and open that document that was started that Sunday night. I was listening to Lauren Conrad’s new book and she was gushing about her techniques on being a successful writer. One hour every day… This seemed awesome.
I mapped out my characters, plot, chapters, overall theme, and even started the first chapter. Damn you Lorelei Gilmore for making this sound so easy. You are a freaking Gilmore, of course it is easy!
Here are my current lessons I have learned from this time of adventure and misfortune.
