I didn’t want to look at the date of my last post. Depressing. My excuse…life. Is it a good excuse? Nope.
So, I apologize for the absence. I will try to do better. (Yes, you knew that sentence was coming. It always does.) I’m going to treat this page more like a journal and not something that feels forced. It’s important. Our words are important.
What have I been up to with my writing?
I’ve been going through the critiques for Pulse of Light. If I work on it more today, I will be halfway through the manuscript. I need to finish the final chapter of Night into Day…or rewrite the whole story. Not sure what to do. I’m still praying about it.
YouTube has been a great help for learning to hone my writing skills. I have been watching a lot of videos by Michael La Ronn (Author Level Up). He gives practical advice. Other authors are sharing their experiences as well. I have been disappointed in the tactic used by some well-known authors this year. They had advertised they would share new information, but it turned out to be the same videos from last year, just given different titles. Grrr…
Scrivener 3 for Windows has not been released yet. I’m looking forward to using it. I’ve been working on improving my drawing skills. Umm…it’s harder than I remember. For those of you that can illustrate your own stories—impressive.
I’m still doing my writing on my iPad. PadOS is going to be released in a few months. I can’t wait. I love technology!
I think that’s about it for now. The next time we talk, I hope to report that Pulse of Light is ready for beta readers.
What about you? How’s your writing journey going?
