(Not Quite) the Beginning

I've spent years dreaming about writing my first novel.  It would be a best seller (of course) and sell a million copies.  I spent a few more years talking about writing said novel, receiving encouragement from family and friends, but still had not put pen to paper (or in the case of the laptop, fingers t keyboard).

Several months ago, I was having lunch with a former classmate (whom I'd reconnected with on Facebook) and told her about this said dream.  Not only did she offer encouragement, she went above and beyond that and offered the one thing no other friend or loved one had offered - NAGGING.

From the moment I told her I wanted to write a book, this girl literally harassed me every time she caught me posting something.  I finally got tired of making excuses, clicked off Facebook, and put fingers to keyboard.  The result is the first draft of my very first novel.

So Trena Mooneyham, this post is dedicated to YOU!


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog! I look forward to following your journey. It's pretty mind-numbing, isn't it?

    And yay for you for listening to your friend and writing it!!

  2. That is really cool! Glad you have a nagger. ;)

    Oh, and I see you live in Kona!

    Aloha from Honolulu!
