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!
