Hi all:

I have decided to chronicle the process of taking my next novel from a bunch of random thoughts in my mind to a finished book on the bookshelves in December 09. I'm calling it: Tales of a "Midlist" writer (http://jzwriting.blogspot.com/). I am hoping others will find this somewhat entertaining and perhaps even a little helpful to read about the "thought process" from start to finish to marketing.

I'm sure others have done this but I'm also sure we all have our own unique ways of going about it.

If nothing else it gives me a place to vent. Venting is good.

Feel free to stop by and leave comments.

(Not sure if this is in the right place, feel free to move it.)

Hi John. I looked back over at your Myspace and saw all the non-novel writing credits. Pretty impressive.

Hey John,

I think this belongs in blogging, but would like to leave it here for at least 24 hours for the other novelists to notice and get on board. If I don't move it tomorrow, could you please PM me and remind me?

Thanks! :)

Sure, if I remember. I wasn't sure where blogging about novels should go.

Ooh, definitely bookmarking. I have such an obsession with blogs about writing (and writing "how-to" books, but that's a whole 'nother story ;)

Interesting idea. I will be following that as much as I can.
And remember to add the new blog URL to your signature.

Schweta, when you teleport it over, move it into Blog Events and Announcements, please. :)

The second entry is up. I am also blogging about my comic strip Working Daze (http://workingdaze.blogspot.com/). It will give my readers a chance to sound off and give me feedback to help reshape the strip.
