Almost finished!

What a day, night, you name it. I am one whipped puppy. I dug out my old (and one new) short stories and compiled The Storyteller's Dusty Trunk II. I imagine a lot of you have seen some of them and would remember them - like my Halloween stories. The shortest is my one page wonder, My Sailor which is a page and a half in pdf book size. The longest is not even 5K words. I'm (dare I say the words?) planning to republish my first dusty trunk. The thing is, I can sell the pdfs on the website IF I have the books there. I'm hoping to make enough to pay for the copyrights. I'll see.

I still have to make the cover, that's worse than anything for me. Even though I am an old lady, I am still a novice writer. I did clean up Back to the Land and put in a couple pictures. I have been at it for some time. I just want to see my work in print, on my shelf, my 'mark' on the world. I was here - you know? Pitiful, I know. I may be pipe dreaming, who knows? I should go to bed. It's late.

  1. I'm impressed. I've always wished I enjoyed writing but I don't. I even took some classes & still don't enjoy it. Good for you.

    1. I think everyone has something they are really good at and find joy in that. I seem to be a dabbler in many things, doing 'passable' on any number of crafts, and yet nothing to be impressed about.

  2. Good for you. I hope you get your writings compiled and get them published. As I am new to your blog, I have to go back and read some of your older writings.

    Such an interesting picture of the cabin. Very quaint and rustic looking.

    1. I have deleted quite a few of my lesser blog posts, more for my convenience than anything. My eyes aren't what they used to be. I really write about anything - lol.

    2. I, for one, love the more eclectic subject types of blogs. I find people interesting and like to hear about whats on their minds any given day. No matter if its how they are feeling or what is cheering them up, or bringing them down. One subject type of blogs would lose their appeal after awhile, I would think.

    3. Lol, I couldn't do a one subject blog if my life depended on it! ;-)

  3. I found I enjoy blogging. Thought of writing a novel and I do have a plot in mind.
