The all too infrequent update.
It is here.
What have I been up to? Working. Work usually slows this time of year but I haven’t seen any let up this year until this week really.
Kids. The usual. Having a kid is hard work. Having triplets is a little like trying to manage an Alaskan Gremlin farm in a rainstorm; during one of those periods where night lasts for weeks at a time.
Writing Wednesdays. Or more appropriate, Editing Wednesdays, but no days start with “E.” I think I have 5 sessions under my belt so I feel confident posting about it here. Bonus: I feel good about the work I’m doing. The editing goes well, if painstakingly slowly. I’ve been editing/rewriting what I am only now realizing was a horribly unfinished product. Like dynamited stone I started the project but needed to break out the chisel for the fine work. Revisit. Revise. Remove. Reorganize. Shorten. I’ve lightly redone the opening to One Bad Thing to remedy some “jumpiness” concerns from Renee. Overall I’m happier with the semi-final product. Whether it will ever constitute a finished product, I’m not sure. Fiction isn’t my “work” writing style, or even the style I’m trained in, and I flounder just a bit for footholds.
