Life of a Writer

"The life of a writer is tragic: the more we advance, the farther there is to go and the more there is to say, the less time there is to say it." From Gabrielle Roy, in Donal Stephens, Writers of the Prairie (1973)

Sling Words gives that a big AMEN.


  1. Thanks - I will try the changes! I am done my manuscript...just re-editing again and working on the query letter to agents. Thats where I discovered the whole hidden world of word count formulas!

    I've also begun outlining the prequel....

  2. Sheila, what kind of story have you written? I think you said you ended up with more than 150K words? If so, email me personally
