I’ve allowed myself to get out of the habit of writing every day, and once I skip a day or two, it becomes all too easy to continue to skip a week or two or three. But I think I’ve gotten back into things, if I can just get myself out the door early enough in the mornings.
I’ve been working on re-reading and some small editing to the book I wrote twenty years ago, before I got married. It was hard work getting into it. I had hoped since it was years since I’d even looked at the thing, that I’d have the distance to be able to read it, but apparently not. I’ve managed to force my way through it once, and then much easier the next couple of times, looking for typos, etc. I’m still not able to go through and see if it’s any good, all I can see are the flaws. I’ve been hoping for months that my husband would read it as well, so he could give me his thoughts on it, but it hasn’t happened yet.
I’ve managed to get around the point in the current book where I was stuck (not through the stuck point, I had to back up and come at it a different way), and am hopeful that once I’ve gotten all the typing caught up, I’ll be able to move forward, and finish it. I’m expecting it to still be a bit shorter than many of the tomes that come out nowadays, though.
Speaking of typing, etc., another character has come out of the woodwork. But she didn’t bring any story along with her, and she’s clamoring for attention. I’m in the process of writing/typing a couple of scenes for her on her own, which will hopefully keep her quiet and contented enough until I can deal with her story properly. I’m still working on it, but I’ve put a little bit up in this page (*link to*).
That’s about it for now. Hopefully next month I’ll have more to talk about.
