Abandon Fear All Ye Who Enter

Hi.  I'm B.E. and I've been an unpublished writer since January 2004 - when I began what would become my first novel.  (I don't count all my many failed attempts from 1984 until then.)  I've been blogging about my trials and tribulations since December of 2006.  If you're totally new to me and my crazy antics, Welcome.  If you've come over from my main blog - The Writing Spectacle - grab a cup of coffee and stay awhile.

This new endeavor chiseled its way out of my skull (yeah, blatant Athena/Zeus reference there) after several people told me I should package my 'NaNoWriMo Pitfalls' posts in some way.  This is my answer to that.

Anyway, the idea here is to give tips and hints on how to survive this process we live and love and hate and tear our hair out over - writing toward publication.  I'm hoping to have some published authors drop by with guest posts, to beg some of my unpublished friends to wander through with thoughts of their own, and to fill in the gaps with my own thoughts, previous posts from my other blogs, and witty repartee*.

I hope you take the time to add yourself to the Survivors list over there on the right.  Stop by early and often.  You never know who might be dropping by.

*Your mileage may vary.  Witty repartee not guaranteed.


  1. Good luck, B.E. It sounds like a great idea. Even though I'm technically a published author, I'm still in the trenches fighting to get noticed. I don't have an agent and that's one of my future goals. I still have much of the journey to travel :D

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Karyn. Sounds like you might have a story to tell here some time. ;o)

  3. Love this idea, B.E. - will be following along faithfully :)

  4. This likes like a place I'll be stopping by a lot!

  5. That's my hope, JB. I want it to be a place writers can stop and find encouragement, hope, a little empathy... =o)

  6. Hello hun! I finally checked my blogs of the past few days--I've been busy with my pupeh lol.

    Can't wait to see what this blog brings!! =)
