Wow, it’s been nearly a year since I’ve had this blog now! First, I’d like to thank everyone for the support–what a great readership I have here. I couldn’t have done it without you. There are so many points where I thought about falling back down the wrong path, only to think about how I had all the support back here, with so many eyes watching and reading. Oh yeah, and it helps to know I have a writing project that needs a good ending. When you are still writing a story you are still living, reminding yourself that YOU (in part) can choose the ending, it makes a big difference in every decision you make.
This has been quite the experience. I can only hope that you all will experience an outpouring of emotions and a voice of your own when you feel the time is ready–no matter what the problem is that you are dealing with. So again, thank you.
Anyway, I thought it would be a good time to update everyone on “The Project.” I’ve been working on editing and revising every day–which, I found, has been a long process in itself. I treat it like a (fun) homework assignment. Once I divided everything into chapters (there are 65!), I assigned myself to revise/edit a chapter a day. Little did I know how much I would get stuck on a few chapters, spending as much as two weeks going back over the same one and editing, enhancing, and just plain ‘ol pouring my heart out into what I had. Sometimes I just get so inspired with these memories and want to make sure I get the reader in my head.
