Last week’s post talked about my ‘memoir’ book that I’ve been putting together from my aunt’s wartime diary and her speaking notes. The file and photos for that book are now with the formatter and a cover designer has provided some options to choose from, which I’ve done so that should be ready very soon. All of this is a slow way to say, I now have time and I’m back working on book 4 of The Modest Proposal Institute.
As is usual for me, I have an ending written and some of the middle but I’m struggling to start the story in an engaging way. The ‘hook’, that great opening sequence that draws the reader in, eludes me once again. I’m told the difference between an amateur and a professional writer is that the pro is just an amateur that doesn’t give up. If so, I’m a professional but not yet being rewarded like one:-)
If you’d like to help out with a small reward, check out my Amazon Author page and buy a book. This author would be very grateful.
