My name is Terrie, and I am from New York. I'm finally working on a book and feel I might see it through, which is pretty exciting. Not that I have a long line of false starts, but I've known I wanted to write nearly my entire life, and here I am, past 50 and just taking my first steps beyond blog posts, quick fix creative bits on the rock climbing forums I belong to, and copy for websites. I've started on a piece of fiction with a working title "The Little Girl." No idea what the title will really be, and I think this might be a good sign, since in the past I always started with a TITLE! On this project, when I went to enter that TITLE, I thought "I have no idea." and easily skipped it to get started on the story. The writing is coming along very smoothly, almost frighteningly so, and I am guessing that is all I should be concerned with to start. However, I can't help myself from wondering about all the details on getting the work shown once it is ready, who I should have look at it as I proceed, pitfalls to avoid and all the rest. I am hoping to find some guidance from you fellow writes on this forum, and look forward to participating in the forums. (Also, the GOOD news is that I don't have an internet connection in my cabin, which is where I write. That means I shouldn't be able to avoid working on the book by hanging out online - hahahah).
