Hello Lovely Readers!
Yes, it’s been awhile since I last posted. I took 6 weeks off to do other things besides write. I read, I played some World of Warcraft, attempted to cross country ski, visited with family and friends, read some more – including my own book.
Oh yea, signed some new clients, too. Hint: it helps in paying bills.
And during all of this time, my novel, Beneath the Willows, has been in the hands of a fabulous group of beta readers while I occupied my mind with more mundane things, chewed my fingernails to the quick and waited.
There are the terrible cliches about paint drying and watched pots that never boil; time crawling. You know those, right? They’re TRUE! Light, but that was a long time to wait. Every minute ticking by with eternal ‘clicks’ of the clock.
Tick: The stars wheel overhead, fading into daylight with the rising sun.
Tock: The sun sets, dipping below the horizon to welcome a descending blanket of darkness.
Eternity passes, and now I’m prepared to move forward into REWRITE! Monday morning, January 25th, I shall take the feedback I’ve received and create a better, more dynamic novel.
To those who’ve read the book in all it’s first draft glory, typoos and all, I salute you! Your feedback was valuable, your gift of reading invaluable and your desire to see my manuscript succeed priceless. I hope I can live up to the expectations.
And when it’s all done, the ink dried and a new project begun – dinner’s on me.
Fair Winds and Following Seas, lovely readers, wherever your horizons beckon…
