all I see is red pen!

doing some editing the old-fashioned way first – printed pages completed first, found two red pens (in case one runs out of ink) and am toughing through it. Anyone have any other advice? Thus far, I wish that I had printed it out in a larger font. I will have to find some music to listen to that is not very distracting.

Forced to make analogies again…ugh

I have had to resort to making analogies a few times over the last 4-5 years that I have been putting this original work of mine together. Lucky for me I didn’t have to make it up on the fly-already had it, handwritten on one of my hand written thesaurus cheat sheets.

SO…all I can do to vent is post the image of something I drew.20170305_204526

Shuffling through it again…No “writer’s block” here. Read, Re-read, Edit & Organize

I am always in need of finding my focus – Looks like my writing plan started with some Alice in Chains “Down in a Hole” this weekend. Now all I need to do is set aside the time to read, reread, edit and organize. I don’t like to shuffle music.

And one day later, still haven’t had a chance to block some time for myself. Yesterday it was Alice in Chains and today it’s The Shins, “Shuts too Narrow”. Will find the time to write today.
