My not so famous writing career
And there they are. My five books published by Cerridwen Press. The first was A Very Difficult Man and the latest, Too Young To Die. I am pleased with my accomplishments but what to do for an encore?
I have two contemporary manuscripts tucked away. I could work on them.
I have written 41,000 words in a historical romance set in the Regency period and am not sure why, but I can't seem to get in the "zone" where words will fly from my brain to the page and I'll finish and start revisions. I love the story. I enjoy the characters. I have a great setting in the English countryside. I even know what's going to happen when the evil character in my story tries to do away with my heroine and make it look like an accident.
Words of wisdom from the Goddesses will inspire me. So what do you do if and when the words limp along?
If you want to see the cover of my non-fiction book, The House at Bridal Veil, you can view it on my web site. www.anitabirt.com There's also a map showing exactly where the house in on the Columbia River, east of Portland, Oregon.
