The Long, Winding and Pothole Riddled Road to Rewriting and Editing

No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. Although, I realize I haven't posted anything in the better part of a year, so it's easy to understand why that might have been the common assumption. During that time I've been working on original fiction in my genre of choice and I have a second draft completed. Editing seems to be an endless practice, and I’m currently in the throes of yet another revision, polishing the story to make it shiny and presentable before I begin the process of querying. One thing I’ve learned is that I could revise the story a million times and still find things to change each time.

Some of you may want to know if I'm working on Clipped Wings or Misapprehension. The short answer to that is no. Although I would like to conquer a rewrite of the beast that is CW&IA at some point, I'm all about finishing one project before moving onto another. That story needs some serious surgery, and right now I lack the time necessary to perform such an in depth operation.

To the readers who have continued to make contact during the past year to check up on me, or who have followed my banal twitter feed; thank you for your endless support and encouragement. You have helped inspire me to push forward when the solitary process of editing and rewriting seemed an insurmountable task. 

I hope that some time in the future I will be able to tell you I have a novel ready for release. Until then, I’ve written an article for Fictionista Workshop on Keeping the Flow. I have article scheduled for posting later this month. If you're interested in learning more about the writing process, check out some of the informative articles posted in Fictionista's Writer's Toolbox.

From here on out, this will be the place where I provide updates on my writing progress and process.

Thank you for your continued support on the lonely and sometimes pothole riddled road of writing.
