Let’s Try This Again

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…

What else?

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?
