As I sit on the edge of my bed, I contemplate what the day has planned for me. I feel the need to gain control of the things I have put off for so long. The first thing that comes to mind is my writing. I have been editing, rewriting, and the vicious circle goes on. Well, today I would like to gain control of my complete short story, and one of three novels that is complete. Editing is never-ending it seems. But I will give it a go one more time. I am thinking of asking my sister-in-law to help. She seemed interested in doing the job in the beginning. Now I don’t know but it’s worth the ask. Anything to get these stories told.
The short story is a children’s book. The novels are romance. Different I know, but when I write it just leaps onto the page from my brain and I just go with it. The short story didn’t take long and I wrote three novels simultaneously in one day. I should say I started the three novels and wound up zoning in on the first one to the end in one day. Then I hit a monumental writer’s block and gave up. I picked up and started again. Then someone advised me to let someone else edit what I had. That was a disaster. Money exchanged hands and after a year, I got the dirty end of the stick because the person I paid took my money and only edited the first chapter. Did I mention this was a friend? Yeah.
Well, I know I can count on my sister-in-law. She’s a pretty level-headed person. A lot to take on I know, but all I can do is ask right? Onward and upward I always say. So here I go. I am going to let my “babies” go into someone else’s hands. Eye of the Tiger, no longer meager kitten. Wish me luck!
