Editing it just never ends....

Greetings Loved Ones,

Just wanted to give everyone an update. I'm working on my editing and those of you who know me, know I HATE editing. I know its important and it only makes the final story that much better, but it truly is this author's nemesis. After having written the story and having gone through it, then sending it to trusted readers who read and give me their opinions and I rewrite the same said story again, then send it off for another re-read followed by another bout of editing. Then you send same said manuscript to your publisher who decides if it is marketable and if they choose it they ask for re-writes after which it goes to the official editors who send it back for more editing ... does anyone sense a pattern here yet! By the time the actual manuscript is accepted the story is literally burned into the back of my eyelids.

Ok, yes I'm whining. I love writing, I love telling stories. I couldn't love working with words and painting pictures with words. Bringing my characters to life ... Still the editing ... although necessary ... is driving me crazy...

That was my bit of whining for the day. I'm now going to play with Brie (one of my cocker spaniel dogs ... not cheese :P~~ ).

Thats all for now ... keep reading and hopefully soon I will have a new release.

Working on my next piece

Greetings Loved Ones...

Well lately I've been buried in my writing. I have a couple stories I'm working on including a college M/M story called Dark Chocolate and Raspberries. I really enjoy the story line and it has some really funny scenes in it. It is in the early stages, but I think it is a very sound story. It is full of self discovery, angst and confusion, my two young men learn to be strong together and that being together makes them both stronger than when they were alone. They both learn to stand on their own two feet with the support of the one they love. It is really coming together nicely, but the editing is not done.

Editing ... I think I spend more time editing than anything else. the stories are the easy part, its the editing that is horror written. For this author, nothing in the world is worse than editing. It is a meaningful exercise that proves to me over and over again how much I don't have a grasp of the English language regardless of the fact that it is my first language. I love to write and I endeavor to create beautiful, heart felt characters that will find their way to happy endings. But the editing is really going to be the part that drives me to distraction... lol.

Anyway, happy reading and I will see you between the lines.
