Editing and Excuses

This won't be a very long post -- this is mostly a life update, mainly to explain where the hell I've been for the past couple weeks. I've never tried to hold this blog to a tight schedule, since I know myself well enough to know that that wouldn't work. But I don't like that this place has been a ghost town recently. Let's change that!

So... the promised explanation.

Many of you know that I've written a book. I won't get too much into the plot, but if you know me personally, you've heard me talk your ear off about this thing anyway. I will, however, say that this book is my baby. I'm extremely proud of it, and I think that once it gets published (because it WILL, by God), people will read it.

I hope you all like it as much as I do.

Anyway, I've been shopping it around, and while I won't go into too much detail (don't wanna jinx it), someone has expressed interest! However, they asked me to make some edits to the manuscript before they gave me a definite "yes" or "no." So, that's where I've been the past two weeks -- editing my manuscript, trying to make it the best it can be. I've now sent it off to my good friend/Fearless Editor, Annie, who will tear it to shreds, and then send it back. Then, I'll do even more edits and send it back to Annie, and this process will repeat for as long as it takes for me to feel comfortable sending the manuscript back to the person who requested the edits in the first place.

I don't know how this'll pan out, but I'm really pleased with the edits I've made. Even if the person who expressed interest ultimately passes on the manuscript, it'll be worth it. The book's stronger now.

So, yeah. That's where I've been.

We will now return to your semi-regularly scheduled blog. Thanks for your patience.


Again, I'm so sorry for being radio silent over here! Here's to hoping I can get back to updating at a reasonable pace soon.
