Still Around

Sorry all, I have been working hard on my next novel! Which I am happy to say is almost done! I have to get a copy of it to the person that is going to edit it for me! Then my journey for an agent is really going to get going. I have been searching the web off and on for an agent that is going to fit what I want. Let me tell you, its not as easy as some people think! There are alot of agents out there in the big world! :) But I am ready for the challenge of finding the one that is going to work for me! So life has been fun latley. Just working on the book, raising my three small children (that are growing like weeds), and spending time with my husband! I just wanted to come on and let everyone know that I am still around and am going to be posting more often. I have also been working on a short story. I am going to try to get in published in the Edgar Allan Poe Magaizine! One way or another I am going to get noticed in the big world of writing. I have noticed alot latley that there are many writers out there trying to get noticed! I have also come to realize that alot of them are in it for the money! Writing really shouldnt be about the money, it should be about the love of writing. Even if I never get noticed or even if I never get an agent, I am going to continue to write! Writing is one thing in my life that is non-stressful! I can sit down and start to peck at the keyes and the world around me just starts to fade away! And let me tell you that is an amazing feeling. I am not writing for the money or anything else. I am writing for my sanity! There are many things in life that you need to hold on to becuase of the fact that they make you who you are. And writing is a big part of me! When I was in high school, I did things to hide who I really was. I didnt want to be known as a nerd or dork! Well now I am proud to yell out "I AM A NERD AND PROUD OF IT!" There is nothing better then being proud of who you are! I guess I am getting alittle off the subject but that is okay! I am sitting here without a care in the world. I am writing! It doesnt matter that I am not working on my next book, or doing anything really important. But I am writing! So anyways.... I am going to end this post now. But I'll be back! So if anyone out there has any good information about writing that they would like to say with the outside world, email me at zanadibartolomeo@gmail.com I am going to start posting writing tips. Even if you are not a writer but a reader I want to hear your input on what you like in books that you read! I wish everyone a happy day!

I disagree with "writing shouldn't be about the money, it should be about the love of writing." The two aren't mutually exclusive. If I'm going to spend a lot of time doing something, I generally want to make money at it unless it's a hobby.
