Can You Believe That?

It seems that people actually like my writing! Can you believe that? Yeah, I almost didn't think that anyone would ever enjoy reading anything I wrote. Someone even said I was an imaginative story teller! Can you believe that too?

So, my reluctance is wearing thin lately and I think that if I put my fingers to the keyboard with more diligence than I have in the past I just may finish a first draft. Can you believe that?

I read an excellent blog about silencing ones inner editor. If I silenced my inner editor there would be no one in my head. Really, I am constantly censoring and editing myself, be it thoughts or the written word. Too bad I let words fly out of my mouth without thinking, though. My mouth has gotten me into a mess of trouble over the years. Hey, wait a minute! Get your mind out of the gutter... I didn't mean it that way.  Back to the inner editor, please. Zan Marie wrote this wonderful informative blog on her inner editor. She figured out, after a very nice conversation, that if she offered up the first book in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series along with a cup of tea her inner editor would take a take a hike for awhile so she could finish a draft. It was a wonderful bit of writing.

Anyway, that's it... I just wanted to brag.
