After five years of monthly blog entries, I’ve decided to take a two-month break. I have a pretty good excuse. The birth of a grandson coupled with helping his two-year old sister. I’ll post a new update at the end of January 2017, but as a teaser I will report that my novel received its first edit.
My writing coach indicated, “the plot arc is solid and the characters are interesting and engaging. I don’t think the revision will be difficult, because the structure is good. It’s a remodel, not a tear down”. This may leave you with the impression that only are few tweaks are necessary.
Before the new baby arrived I had a constructive conversation with my coach. I still have much work ahead to improve my novel. I’m charged up and ready to rock and roll once I’m able to stop holding and cuddling my grandchildren.
As the saying goes, I will see you next year. May you and your family have a joyous holiday season and a healthy, happy New Year.
