In my read, read and read some more Romance research program, I’m currently half way through Shirley Jump’s Vegas Pregnancy Surprise. Shirley’s writing is lovely and so easy and enjoyable to read and I did what I often do when I stumble upon a book I like, I checked out the author’s web site.
There I found an article that I just couldn’t not read ”HOW TO QUIT WRITING AND END UP ON THE BESTSELLER LIST’‘.
I couldn’t have read this article at a better time. As you all know I got a painful R this week. Like we all do after such an email, I asked myself the usual questions. What am I doing? How long can I keep at this writing gig without making a success of it? Should I give up and take up quilting?
I came to the conclusion after much stewing that I’m not quite ready to throw in the towel. I still LOVE reading Romance and I still really, really, really love writing. I still desperately want to see my name on a published book! But this article by Shirley Jump in which she tells about how she DID give up and then got The Call was really inspiring and really something I needed to read this week!
Just curious? Anyone ever tried to give up writing? How long did you last?
