Busy, busy, busy

I have neglected my blog recently and although I still read and note other blogs, I have failed to write in my own.  Mainly because I have been busy as usual. 

I have been going through my query letter and synopsis for my first book.  While again, rereading and editing it.  I have come to believe you never really finish editing.  It is a continous process and I begin to wonder if my first book will ever be good enough to send in.  I still have parts of me that wonder if I should just rewrite it or leave it be.  I guess I should send it in and if I don't get any requests, then maybe I will consider rewriting or putting it in my drawer.  Either way I am determined to at least send one query by the end of March.  

My second book is going through readers and so far all have been good.  Again, I need to edit and work through that one as well.  It is currently the least of my worries, but always in the back of my mind.

The third book, I am excited to say that I FINALLY figured out how I want it to end and I am excited to get to that point in the work.  I am at 34000 words and so it may be a while before I get there.  I have finished working on the outline and now the writers block that plagued me is over! YEAH!  This part, the creative part, is my favorite thing.  I love it when a storyline falls together!  I can't wait to get it all on paper. 

I guess what I find difficult is trying to focus on one thing at a time.  It is a continous balancing act between the fun creative part of writing, to the down right dirty act of editing and revising.  UGGGG!  I will get there...I hope.

Well, I better get back to rereading and editing, so I can finish and stop whining about it all!
