Feeling like a slow poke...
11/25/2005 2:47:25 PM
I'm sooo close! So close to finishing my edits, that I smell it. It's been a tiring time, very trying with family (mostly) but we've been handling things well. Everything else in life is wonderful, so far. My only hope is for the end of 2005 to come quicker, because it's been one trying year for me. So many losses this year of family and friends, so many hardships, and I'm hoping for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

As I said, I've worked on that novel, and I'm just trying to beat through it, but I'm also trying not to compromise quality, so you can see my delima with that. I really don't want to throw out any garbage out there, and I want people to see the quality of my increase and the creativity along with it. So when I feel tired or I don't seem to be doing the work I should be on my corrections and additions, I stop editing. There's no reason to put garbage in, you'll only get garbage out.

In between my everyday work, life at home, and my novel, I'm still working on getting up to speed on my collaboration with Nickolaus Pacione. We have different writing styles and different backgrounds on where we emphasized our horror reading in the past, so I have to pick up quick on some of his readings to be on par. I thank him for the opportunity, and I'm trying (believe me).

Other stories are being processed on the side--all to be put in my Collection III. There will be a few surprises in there as well. I have some good short stories I will be working on in between getting my novel out--and I am getting it out come hell or highwater within the next week. So stay tuned. I'm also promising an update on my website. That's coming real soon; over the holidays. I have a lot to put on there...

That's the update for now, tonight it's dinner with my wonderful husband, brother, sister-in-law, and my nephews. I'll be setting up the Christmas scene at the house on the weekend and working on my long awaited novel...

Till next time...
