Tonight I’ve been thinking of things I don’t know and they are plentiful. Although I raised children, was an Air force wife followed by an acting career, now I’m a writer with many books to my credit and yet I realized I don'[t know much about writing and time is fleet where one grow older. How in the world did all this happen or rather not happen or do you forever continue to learn ’til the end.
I wrote my first book without a clue. All I had was an idea and I didn’t stop writing until I finished the story. After a few query letters were sent out, soon an offer came in. Excitement for this newbie. No idea about street teams, marketing and more, I wrote another book and another never stopping. Surely I should have learned something, but no. All I knew was the story in my head and how to type. I didn’t know formatting the manuscript or all the nifty stuff. I kept writing.
Computuners actually formatted a recent story. Michael did it maximum, five minutes. Courtesy. They are the best company in Rockland County who always come to my rescue in the many years I’ve depended on them.
The point is I haven’t learned to do a lot of basics and I feel sad about the lack of knowledge. Meanwhile I accepted a task with a fine group of writers and right now I’m up the creek without a paddle. The hubs will help me tomorrow morning.
It’s always something, my friends. I’m just a gal who never said NO.
Love to all, Charmaine Gordon
