|This pic has nothing to do with my post, except that it made it possible to write it.|
Where there is a will, there is a way, and I have found it! Today I am excited about two things. The first thing is that whenever I want to start writing a new post and get the “error on page” message, that’s the one which means I can’t get the cursor to appear in the text box, all I have to do is insert a picture. It can be any picture because after I insert it, there is my cursor! I can delete the picture afterwards if it doesn’t have anything to do with the post. It still doesn’t work quite right because I can only reposition the cursor with the up, down and sideways arrows, but at least I can get my writing done. There are other things wrong with my computer too but it has been a good companion for almost three years now so I’m going to honor it by not complaining.
The other exciting thing is the discovery of some new blogs by great writers about writing. I clicked on a friend’s facebook link to an article about marrying young and it turned out to be one of many really great posts. And that author had some guest writers, one of which was a literary agent who had written a book about how to publish your writing. I could hardly stop reading. My head is full of actual, concrete things I can do to move closer to writing a book. Wouldn’t it be great to have that as a full time job? I’m just sayin’ I think it would.
