Burning the midnight oil

It is actually midnight. I have been working on my third book, which is now my second book because it was in worse shape than my original second book. So I tore it apart. The process helped me to see where the problem was. It went from about 20,000 words to 43,000 words and counting.

I am going to Catherine’s in CT to read both books actually. Mainly to concentrate on the nearly finished one. She has seen nothing of the story so I hope to get a first-time reader reaction. I am very excited. My third book, which I started blogging on the site is about half way done. I thought it might be a short story but I think it needs to be a book. I have a beginning a middle and an end but I need to weave something into it that has eluded me so far.

My problem is that I don’t want to loose the objective of the reason I wrote it in the first place. It needs to remain simple and a little introspective. That at least is what I am saying today.

I am still patiently waiting to hear from the partial MS submission I sent in a few weeks ago (seems like longer). I have been writing solid for three days now. Its impossible to tear myself away, it is a great experience and I am planning to self-publish an on-demand book, unless I hear something from the agent ahead of time.

I am not one to sit patiently. I will be starting another story soon, I get the inspiration from my research and of course there is always another book that can be pulled out of one of the three I am working on.

I have quite a wish list of books to read, as well as my daily blogging efforts and some marathon weekends of writing. As soon as I learn something new, I will pass along the information. Thanks for reading.
