Wow. It’s been almost 2 months since my last post. Sorry about that.
I’ve been busy with work, life and assorted drama. I’m still here, so it’s all to the good.
I’m working as much as I can on my re-write of Revenant. My main issue these days is the whole “show, don’t tell” rule/guideline. That is my focus these days when I put words down. I still hope to be finished by the end of the summer, but I’m not rushing things either. I have a strong plot, good characters and in the end, I think it will be a good story.
Outside of my re-write, the workshop at TMI has ended (I am sad) but I’ve taken the final assignment, polished it up a little more and sent it out as a submission to a paying market! Yay!
As I’ve said before, this is a win in my book. Acceptance, rejection, rejection with notes are all icing on the literary cake. While it would be nice to sell something, it’s ok if I don’t because if I keep writing and following it all the way through, eventually SOMETHING will sell. Any other outcome can only mean improvement of my writing.
Besides, I’d love to actually meet my goal and collect 10 rejections this year (if not more).
