Posted in Determined, The Nasrid Charm

I know I have attitude!

positiveAs I said only a few days ago, this time I am serious about getting my book ready for publishing. It’s been ignored for way too long – my own fault, I know. The problem was that I didn’t really know how to revise it properly. I’ve followed so many blogs, read a plethora of books on the subject and still floundered like a beached whale.

But that has all changed – hopefully for the better! I have signed up for a five month course to learn how to revise my book – and all future ones (am I being presumptuous? – Hell, NO!)

So, now that I have made a proper paid-for commitment, I feel empowered. Knowing that I CAN get this book ready for human consumption is a great feeling. It won’t be easy, but I understand that from the outset.

I’m ready and positively raring to go! I’ll let you know how it goes, but I’m sure that just having the right attitude will take me much further than ever before.

It’s time to turn my ATTITUDE into APTITUDE 🙂

Dreams can come true and mine was to live in Spain forever and ever ....  Well, after studying languages many years ago I became totally enamoured with all things Spanish, I finally made the big move for a more 'relaxed' lifestyle in 2003.  Since then, I have been teaching Spanish to Ex-pats and translating. Also, I trained as a Community Manager (Social Media) so that I have a genuine excuse to be on Facebook, Twitter and the Internet for hours on end, but then I started to write. My first attempt was for NaNo 2012 with 'The Nasrid Charm' (a story set in Spain and the Afterlife.) Like most first drafts, this is in need of serious revision and has been placed on the backburner, while I pursue my mystery stories. I'll get back to it - one day :)
