Hi, my name is Buffi and I’m a Blog Virgin and Social Networking Preschooler. While investigating how to publish my completed manuscript, I was baptized into the informative and addicting world of Social Networking and found myself drowning in an ocean of Blogs. Thank you to the many aspiring authors who have shared their experiences on blogs and allowed me to secretly empathize. I have decided to jump in without a nose plug and conquer my fear of blogging.

I have put down my pen after a long year of writing and re-writing now all I have to do is get my manuscript published. I have the notion that if a publisher would simply read my manuscript, he/she is sure to publish it and make a movie soon after, common writer’s illusion. Or is it?

My goal is to become a published author and this blog will allow me to leave breadcrumbs for those in my same path to follow. My journey will be what I learn about myself along the way. There it is, on the internet for all to read and judge and I think, “Now I just have to do it.” One percent inspiration is complete and so starts my ninety nine percent perspiration.

Thinking about being published makes me remember the old commercial: How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?  For those of you who are too young to remember see: Tootsie Pop VideoSo, how many days does it take to get published? Take the journey with me to find out.

Please support me with your honesty - Buffi   http://www.imbuffi.com/


  1. Just bite it, forget the licking.

  2. Buffi, tell them I want to read your book so get it published!
    And I agree: DO NOT LICK, just BITE! Hey, it's quicker, easier and much more fun!

  3. Buffi,

    You have no idea who I am but I admire your work and am privileged and happy, thanks to this blog, to be able to become part of celebrating your full-fledged authorship.

    Best wishes,

    Cynthia Cochrane

  4. Cynthia,
    Thank you so much for your support. This blog serves as a productive distraction and also keeps me positive.
    Thank you,

  5. Buffi,
    I sincerely hope you get published. As does everyone else, I also have my own ideas of what 'normal' is and how I percieve my family. It' always a fresh breath to see someone else's views and the bumps in the roads of life that make us who we are.
    Yours Forever,
