"Project PS:"--September 18th, 2008

As a writer...sometimes you just have to listen to your own voice!!!

If there is any part of the "being a writer" process I don't like or care would be the moments I have to read my own work! I don't know what it is...maybe the sound of my own voice or the simple fact [that] I have to read the very words I wrestled with for months to bring to life and agonized to quiet while I tried to sleep? I honestly don't know what it is...

But in the end, like any profession, sometimes you have to do things you don't really care for, whether you like it or not. So, for those of you who missed it the first time around, this is your chance to listen as I read the Prologue and first chapter to "Proud Souls." If you have not made up your mind to purchase the book, perhaps my words or the manner in which I read them (yuck) will sway your decision. If you have, then maybe it's a good time to (a.) read along with me or (b.) send the link to that certain someone who has been bugging you to tell them what "Proud Souls" is all about...because honestly, apart from these two opening chapters... I have never read my own book...but that's another story, isn't it???

Please don't forget to comment...tell me what you think... I know I sound like crap, but don't rub it in!!! I am hoping the printed words on the pages of my novel, will more than speak for themselves...

I know what it is not to like your own voice, however I've heard the reading of Proud Souls and honestly you sound pretty good. You have a voice that keeps us the readers tuned in and makes us want to hear what you have to say. I enjoy reading what you write because you’re like me; you come out and say what’s on your mind you don't hold back (this I love about you being a writer) you speak the truth. Keep up the great work you do.

Thanks so much for those kind words. I say if often... we write because we were born to write... but that doesn't make the PROCESS of being a writer any easier on the soul. The hours of studying, researching, and (lastly) the writing are hard. They are hard on your personal life, your soul and on your emotional state (maybe that's why writers are often suicidal???) BUT when people go out of their way to let you (us) know how much you appreciate the things we do and say...well it makes it all worth it.

I will continue doing my best...for you...the day at a story at a fan at a time...

I was having a few problems getting my speakers not to jump, so I wasn't able to hear everything. What I did hear...was great, you don't have a thing to worry about. You are a great inspiration to those of us who have just stepped into the world of writing.

I thank you so much for always giving this fan, the encouraging words that are always so very needed!

For as much as you appreciate the words I say and write...I appreciate the time you spend reading and listening to me...

The world of writing is hard...but it's made easier when writers learn to stick together...and push one another UP the ladder of success, instead of trying to step over one another.... We are artists...NOT corporate sharks in suits...

Thank you!!!
