I’ve gotten away from writing my blog on a daily basis; I decided it was causing me too much angst. The pressure to “perform” was getting to me. However, I didn’t want to lose sight of my goals or get away from my writing. And, I want to assure you that I haven’t.
I’ve been staying diligent with my novel. It is coming along, but much slower than I would like. I’ve talked a lot about a magic wand, which I so wish I owned. I know how I want my novel to go, only it’s harder getting the actual words down on paper. What I will say is that I am still surprised—surprised at how much I am enjoying my little story and surprised that I’ve made it this far (far enough to say that “it’s getting there”). Only it’s not getting there as quickly as I would like. I want it to be done, or so I think. I will miss the writing. It has become my imaginary world and my characters have special places in my heart. My boys are anxious for me to share this story with them, and I am looking forward to the day that I can…share the final product with them, a novel free of final edits, tweaking, and polishing. A story filled with promises.
