Alas, it has been a while.
In that long span of time a lot of fortunate and unfortunate things have unfolded.
Of course the battle of having free time to write is always and forever only half way won.
Personal life, such as health was a set back along side the new area we have to deal with at work (which is entirely too chaotic, but the pay is pretty good.) However, one day I dream to make writing a living, even if it allows me to reduce to a part time job and allow me to not work for the labor industry; to be more specific, skilled labor industry. It’s hard work for starvation wages and I honestly prefer to write for what I currently make.
Now comes the major point of my post for today. My writing, as you may or may not know, was fairly close to completion. At least the 2nd draft was. (The first draft was hand written, which I find crucial for grasping the true emotion as a creative writer.)
But I have been plagued by one chapter that seemed to stick out like a sore thumb. I personally have a limit to explanation giving and I felt I crossed it. I was willing to let it pass, since most people cruised past it, only noting slight boredom from that chapter. I was not satisfied. Then comes a day very recently. (Thanks to a movie inspiring me) I’m happy to say that a rework is in progress and I’m way too excited about where is has led. Once I finish it tomorrow I will have only two chapters left until I’m completely done with phase two.
Yes, it has taken too long to reach this point ever since I started this journey, but for me this will be a personal accomplishment.
