Finally! I can synthesize all the supplemental stuff I need to include when sending to a publisher. Things such as a query letter, a synopsis, a chapter list might be appreciated, a short biography, my original story-board, the very very rough around the edges, but full of personality tape recording I made over one too many cocktails, and lastly the complete manuscript as well as my included illustrations.
Some people have described me as “organized chaos.” Therefore it still may take me a bit of time to get these final things together and checked off. Just know that I am working on it.
Plan for the rest of my day? Well…looks like I am reading my manuscript/novel aloud for the second time since the mass editing project I took on myself.

Since I moved to the state I live in now, I have been mistaken as another so many times I wouldn’t even know how to begin. I met my husband here and get the feeling that when he moved here ( or back here) he too has been mistaken as another.
Currently, we are busy with a new baby-something that is between him and I. Starting a family is hard enough without mucking up my blog about me and my book with baby posts.
So….congratulations to us and look for my next post if you are one of the four or five people following it. Thanks for your support and interest in what I am writing and what I have to say. I haven’t had the opportunity to check out your pages, but it is on my weekly list of stuff to do for the week.
I feel the need to clarify my last blog post: the last entry is not in the book I wrote you crazy people, I just happened to be listening to some Bob Dylan that day and the quote got me thinking and I felt like posting his quoted lyrics.
Here is where I find myself with my writing at the moment:
Currently I am experiencing some horrendous carpel tunnel syndrome, so my computer work is limited. I have about 40 pages that need to be tightened up. Then I need to start back on page one, re-read and resolve any comments I have made. Next I have to again start from page one and re-read. Then, I have to print out the entire 300-350 pages and re-read. At that point, I will see where I am at and work on finding the right publisher for me and/or literary agent. (Knowing me, I will print it out one final time and re-read it)
Details can be time consuming and tedious, but as I have experienced from sending my work to a literary agent previously, they are necessary. Have a good one to those of you out there that might actually be reading my posts.
Takes me back to, “Yo, Word, Alright.”
…”some of the people can be part right all of the time. All the people can be some right all of the time. Part of the people can be some right all of the time. But all the people can’t be ALRIGHT all of the time. Carl Sanberg said that…”

I was “responding” to the daily post, unfortunately I still do not have internet at home, therefore I haven’t “mastered” how to link stuff from one source to the next, etc For those of you “busy” and not a “pro” at website development, “ya’ll” could probably relate
try and stop trying to build ANYTHING in a day that goes for “men” and “women” especially for those of you “trying” to support or liberate woman from being pushed down it just pushes us down more
“Yo, Peace is back by popular demand,” said THE WRITER who is writing on this blog That person would be me write me if you want For those of you whom have viewed, liked or commented on my posts, I am looking forward to checking out your stuff too.
Re-reading some books from high school. Started with Brave New World. I always did love this one! Just reading and sitting in a waiting room at the moment and came across this:
on pages 164-165, “…come in to conflict with Authority”…”over some rhymes”…”on the use of rhymes in Moral Propaganda and Advertisement. ”
I don’t know what is on my reading list next, but re-reading this one has been great for sparking old memories!!
P. S. The writing is going well, all comments resolved, but still neurotically going through some of the content. Trying to work out better words to describe characters and finish up dialogue. Good thing I ❤️ my thesaurus!!
I have the hardest time finding the “correct” or “right” term or word for given things/situations.
It seems like at the moment, if I don’t use the “right” word, everything is taken out of context even more so that it already was.
Not to bring up politics – that is not the subject of the book I have written, but I must admit that I have a bit of empathy for President Donald Trump. He seems like he is also jumped on for using the “wrong words” or “incorrect terms” for things.
A few years ago, I decided to stop and have a tarot card reading. Now that I am getting this novel together, there have been many different people pushing me to post it-some I know and others I don’t. So…here you guys go!
first card: SEAS. Cleansing, 5 frogs on a lily pad
second card: EARTH. Ace manifestation. Work well together? Don’t ?
third card: ECSTATIC UNION. Acceptance and reverse
fourth card: CRONE VISIONARY. (Wind). I see things as they are.
THE FOOL (the middle card). Not a “fool” more introspective.
FUTURE (POST CURRENT)
card one: CARD OF DEATH IN REVERSE. Something good born in the near future
card two: WISE WOMAN. Sees the future and the past. * sees other peoples intentions *
card three: FIRE CARD. Forgiveness.
Card four: WIND. Child conscious. Not naive/ trusting*
hope everyone had a good Father’s Day 🙂 I plan on struggling through the boring details, grammatical errors, structure, format and order this week! Promise 😉
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Since then I have cleaned up my five years of writing and have roughly 300-320 pages to show for it. I never could have imagined that a mess of notebooks and journals would turn into 300 plus pages with chapters and headings.
Still have aways to go. I need to resolve comments and might need to move a few things around. Then comes the hard part, getting someone to actually want to read it.
If anyone is actually reading this, I will try and post again sooner in between posts.
