Thanks to the beauty of October and it's brisk refreshing days, I've been hard at work again on my writing project - THE NOVEL.
I've been rewriting all 312 pages of it and its nearing the finish line. I passed page 215 in the rewrite yesterday. I'm updating and tweaking the story.
Once it's finished I have some new places to send it to. Keep those fingers crossed.
This book has been a work in progress for ten years from the day I had the idea to now. It's grown by leaps and bounds.
It's been around to dozens of places and has a fair amount of rejections. Okay, a huge stack.
On the other hand it's won one award and gained praise from many readers, editors and agents.
My dream has been to see this book published. My long ago goal was to sell short stories and essays. Those goals have been met.
Now it's back to the big dream. The published novel.
If the Lord's willing and the creek don't rise and I experience no other disasters by early November I'll have this thing on its way.
I'm delighted that I've kept at this daily writing schedule for the last month.
I'm a Gemini and have lots of irons in the fire. Too many things draw me away from my good intentions.
Any of you have that problem? Start something and then get lured away by a project that seems better than the one on which you are working???
Share your thoughts.
Thanks for reading and commenting. Blessings to you and yours, Barb
Plus, R and I are traveling to Wisconsin in another week to see the youngest grandchildren, the triplets who soon will be ten and their younger brother.
