Superwoman...not likely, just overwhelmed
9/14/2005 3:34:16 PM
It's funny, each time I write in my blog, I have no idea what to title it, but by the end of this, I will figure out a title.

I'm whittling away at my manuscript, and I've found that my writing (in structure and in form) has improved vastly since I had started it. So I'm finding that a lot of time is being spent re-vamping and shaping the structure of my work. The introduction is fairly long, but it's a good background for the reader--and I do cut down to the point of all the issues I touch on in the introduction. That way all the information is there, it's easy to read, not boring, and, hopefully, keeps the reader interested. Most of the time I'm an optimist (or partially), but when I'm unsure of the outcome, I become a slight pessimist.

The rest of the book, I feel, is well paced. I'm trying not to overload the reader. There's only so much you can do to describe something--that's what I feel, anyway. The last thing I want to do is bore someone to tears.

I've been working on a collaboration with Nickolaus Pacione: that is going rather well. I have formed some other parts in my head for it--I just have to write it down and send it off to him. Must get down to the business of writing it. I've tried to structure everything in my head before I write so it doesn't sound like garbage. It has been helping.

Lately I've been feeling really bogged down and tired by the end of the evening, I just want to crash. But I have some fantastik ideas that I have to write down and I have to keep on my editing job with my manuscript. I still have to send it away for a professional edit. If I send it as it, I know the essence of the story I am trying to tell, will be lost.

I submitted another article to, and I should be continuing with that more regularily. Now that I have my Godfather's death handled, and my father's illness in check (as in-check as it can be), I'm off and running. It's always something. That's what my father-in-law calls "life" and we just have to handle it.

Maybe I will become superwoman? Not likely...

Till next time...
