Just Write the Damned Story!


I understand now why Authors doubt themselves.  I’m making some real progress to my WIP.  But the further I get into it, the more the doubt creeps in.

“Should I have more back-story?  Is this too far-fetched?  Should I eliminate this character?  How about this detail, that detail… etc., etc.”

The continual dialog in my head will not Shut Up!  I constantly have to remind myself to “Just Write the Damned Story!  Just Write the Damned Story!”

Do you have these kind of battles when you are writing?

Another Name Change?


When I first started my blog, I called it “Penny Lane’s Thoughts“, using the name Penny Lane as a playful nod to the Beatles.

Since then, I’m taking my writing more seriously.   So I changed the name of my blog to “Penny Lane Writes“.

As an author, I will be using my real name, Penny Wilson.  I worry that if people look for me, they will not find me with the Penny Lane name.

As much as I adore the name Penny Lane, It’s not who I am.  I’m Penny Wilson.  I am thinking about making another name change to my blog and calling it “The Musings of Penny Wilson” or some such thing.  I haven’t decided on a name for sure yet.

I’ve even secured the pennywilsonwrites .com just in case.

Do you think another change will just confuse people?  Thoughts?
