Pushing Forward

As a wise CP told me - "You can always rewrite- keep your momentum and charge forward!" Wise words from a woman who knows me well. ;) So onward I go pushing out my story. And I can't be going too far astray when I reread something I wrote and it made me laugh! I've heard if your own writing doesn't move you, it isn't going to move anyone else.

This week is less hectic than last and I have great plans to get several chapters punched out - even if it defeats the goal I set for this month with the chapter. I'm not going to haggle over words on the first draft. I'll sweat them out when I go back through the second and third draft. I am more conscience of how I want to say things since a pubbed writer took me under her wing and pointed out some things I need to work on.

I'm still toying with the idea of putting all three paranormal stories together into one big epic novel. I think It will work as it follows one tribe and sibling spirits through a hundred years. I just need to research and see who would buy it.

I'm also anxiously awaiting the unveiling of my website. The web master has been working on it for nearly a month. We have been haggling back and forth over colors and photos. He has all the content, it is just the look we are working on. I'm anxious to let everyone know when it is up.
