Book Writing, Editing, and Publishing

20 Jan

The Rogues stay busy. This fact gets chronicled often. We each work for a living, we each possess passions for writing, and we each strive to marry the two into a cohesive, workable life. Today, I am blogging five different sites as well as posting an article on This, in addition to working with my incredible Office Administrator Cindy on four books-in-progress at ClearView Press Inc and two books-in-progress with the Rogues.

Jeff stays swamped these days with his work. I am amazed at the quantity of writing he manages to produce. Top notch writing at that. The Rogues currently swim in the ocean of editing. Our book, The Method Writers, nears completion. Each of us struggle to make time for our writing, and Jeff brings energy, ideas and commitment to finishing the project.

Nancy happens to be the most swamped person I know. She amazes me that she can even muster the energy to attack her days, much less be as productive as she is. Between her work, her writing business, her writing in general and The Method Writers, this lady shows me what work ethic and determination are all about. Nancy is an excellent editor, and the Rogues are truly blessed with her dedication to our group.

Bridget currently resides in Michigan until February. All we ‘southern’ Rogues miss her sorely and look forward to her return. Don’t think for a moment we are disconnected by distance. We Oovoo (meet online in video chat) each week. We use technology to keep our group and projects moving forward. Can you believe, busy as we all are, that we’re writing two, yes two books together, editing, and meeting weekly online. Bridget keeps us on track by taking meeting minutes. She just started doing this out of the blue, which has been a HUGE benefit to the group.

The Rogues are writing. We’re editing. We’ll soon be publishing. This all in addition to owning hectic lives. I write all this as encouragement to all writers who say they “don’t have time to write”. None of the Rogues have time to write – yet we do. We make time to write. So can you. Sacrifice something. TV time. Sleep. A couple games of Spider Solitaire. You can do it. I know you can, because the Rogues do.

    You are an inspiration to all of us to keep on writing! You should receive a pingback from wordsetcwriting. I referred a fellow blogger to roguesgallerywriters. Hope all is well. Keep on writing and hope you read my post on Motivational Monday on my blog!

      Hi Christine! Thanks for popping by and taking the time to comment. I’m working hard at keeping 6 blogs posted. The Rogues help out on a couple of them. I may begin looking for guest blogging help soon. Motivation is one of the things I’ve noticed writers need to keep in front of them. Let’s keep motivating, shall we?!!

    Your encouraging words translate to; just do it! I started writing the date and time I devote to each piece I’m writing and surprised to see how much gets done in 15 to 20 minutes. But then the editing begins and that is time consuming…Just Saying

    By the way, I follow you but didn’t receive notification of your post, Christine told me.
