The web site for Susan Rose...writer and business tycoon

> > >
Welcome to RoseBud, the site where inquiring minds can find out what's new with me, Susan Rose. I started this site to keep my friends and family up-to-date on the progress of my novel, Confessions of a Frog Kisser. Since publishing the book, this site has morphed into whatever I feel like making it at any given time! To find out a little more about me and my goings on, take a look through the site. I'd love to hear from you, especially if I say something in the blog that strikes a chord. So drop me a line anytime.

Good News (or Why Everyone Should Write a Book)

I can't believe it's been so long since my last post. My days have definitely been moving quickly, and I have been just a little bit distracted. I have a very good reason for my distraction this week: I got engaged on Saturday.

Everytime I say or write the E word I have to stop and let it register. This is not something I ever really expected. And to be engaged to an absolutely wonderful, kind, considerate, smart, funny, loving man who can cook and who my family ADORES on top of all that...well, it's still a blissful surprise.

So how does my engagement tie in to my secondary title for this post? It ties in because I believe the reason Rick is in my life is because I wrote Frog Kisser. Although the book was a work of fiction, in writing it I was able to identify some of my unhealthy and self-destructive patterns in relationships, and was able to change them. Then, I travelled WAY outside my comfort zone and published the book...and that's when the fun began. I set up a MySpace profile to publicize the book, and a few months later I got a message from a guy wearing a kilt. He seemed entertaining, and now I'm engaged to him. So, had I never sat down to record the events of my bachelorette party one February evening three years ago, I'm pretty sure I'd be in the same place I was back then. And, frankly, I like this place better.

That's my story. I hear other stories from other writers who've put themselves out there and had nothing but good things happen. I have a friend who just told me she travelled outside her comfort zone by writing a short story in a genre she'd never considered before. And guess what...someone bought the story! That's huge and wonderful news.

So pick up that pen or sit down and that keyboard and get writing. It's worth every second of it.

Congratulations, Susan!!!!! I know I've already told you that, but I think it deserves a more public acknowledgment.

I'm so happy for you. Couldn't have happened to a nicer woman. :-)

You have made me hopeful and happy today. I've been writing again after a long hiatus and this time tackling fiction and developing my sparring skills with a blog. I've finished a few short stories and I'm also starting a novel, a hugely daunting task that leaves me breathless.
So much written about the publishing industry is so discouraging to fledgling writers. I'm thankful for this bit of encouragement and wish you congratulations on your engagement and your book!

Just dropped by. Intrigued by the name. One day I'll publish my blog when I find out how.
Good luck,

I just drifted in and I've been reading some of your posts. Wow, it sounds like putting yourself out there in print really helped you define your direction in life. That's fantastic. I'm currently unpublished and looking for inspiration, courage and direction in how to get my work out there. I haven't read everything you've blogged yet, so if you haven't touched on the subject yet, might you consider sharing your publishing experience with us other wannabe authors? Congrats on your book and your engagement.
