Back from the Book

I promise you, this pile is neat and tidy compared to what it was when it was accompanied by a huge stack of books for my research.
Earlier this year I received word that I would be given the great opportunity to write an Idiot's Guide. Once the contract was signed and my outline was turned in, it was time to get writing.
I had to drop out of sight...hiding from family, friends, and even some fun. That was the time I had to eat and breathe the book.
I kept my head down and turned in my draft and am now in the author review stage. The book is scheduled for a January 2014 release.
Each writing project that I've done has differed from the last. But this project touches on so many elements that WOW! Women on Writing delves into daily. I figured for my next few entries I would share some of what I learned along the way about:
- Auditioning for the part of the writer...and believing in yourself
- Staying focused and getting the work done
- ...And other tips and tricks for writing
So, do you have any questions for me about this process? I will do my best to address them in my next post.
Elizabeth King Humphrey writes and edits in Wilmington, North Carolina. Now that the kids are back in school she's looking forward to some quiet writing time. (Or longer naps!)
