Daydreaming on Paper

This blog is for writers in all seasons of life. Whether you are a beginner, or a multi-published writer who has royality earning books, we are all consumed by the same passion--writing.

No matter what we write, fiction or nonfiction, it all begins with a thought swirling in our mind. We write it down, add, subtract, edit, rewrite, edit, wad it up and throw it in the trash, retrieve it, take it to critique groups, rewrite, polish, submit, recieve rejections, cry, resubmit, and . . .

quit? NO!

We keep at it. And then it happens. Our swirling thoughts are published and create in the minds of our readers a place to daydream, a haven from harsh reality, an answer, hope.

There's nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein. ~Walter Wellesley "Red" Smith
