On Writing the the Book:  My Man’s Best Friend

As a script writer I think I’ve always been intrigued with novels. There was something about writing a book that not only fascinated me but also presented a bit of a challenge. It wasn’t until I met Eric Jerome Dickey back in 2004 that I started to really give it some significant thought.

I had just finished adapting his bestselling novel, Friends and Lovers into a stage play and it was the first day of rehearsal. I remember driving to a small theater in Hollywood (Hollywood BLVD and Highland Ave to be exact), for the rehearsal.  When I walked into the theater I remember saying to myself, “OMG, that’s Eric Jerome Dickey sitting right there, right there!”  I felt a sense of anxiety wash over my body as I took a deep breath and approached him.  His smile was infectious and he his greeting was warm as I introduced myself as the writer of his book project.  An immediate hug followed which solidified that maybe he was happy with my results… thank gawd!

Our conversation flowed easily and I remember him asking me if I had ever thought about writing a book.  Of course I had thought about it, so I quickly told him “yes”, I have been thinking about it very much so.  He then turned to me saying that he thought I should should write one, and that he thought I’d be good at it.

Well that was pretty much all the validation I needed to kick start my first novel, My Man’s Best Friend.   To be honest, when starting my novel I was extremely intimidated at the time. I knew I’d have to invest in the experience and adapt a whole new writing style. But I didn’t let that deter me in my creative process.

Like anything new, it took me awhile to adapt to a new way of thinking and writing style.   The only thing I’d written in the last 9 years were scripts.  What would normally take me four months to complete a first draft of a script, my first novel  took me over a year back in 2004.

Yes, it was a challenge.  Yes,  I thought of quitting several times, but I am so very glad that I stuck it out.  So here’s to more challenges in the future.
