Good morning and happy Sunday everyone! Apparently this is my 100th blog entry. Though not consistent in the beginning, I have been pretty regular and I’m really proud of myself. I honestly think this blog has kept me somewhat accountable in my writing. Though this isn’t actually story writing, it does get my thoughts and ideas flowing. It also allows me to celebrate my wins and vent my failures. And of course I’ve used it to share personal stuff, including the hardships and rewards of parenting three kiddos, two with special needs.
Today I wanted to share how much I hate editing. I have three pieces of work to edit. Each one is in a different stage of editing. New feature script: proofreading. Old Feature: Third Edit with notes. YA Book: First real exit with professional critique, soon to have editing notes.
This will be what I’m working on for the next couple months, I’m sure. Especially since I will be doing a lot of traveling next month and the kids will be home for the summer break. I was really hoping to have my son at therapy, like planned with the therapy services, but since we are taking a long vacation, they wont take him for the summer session, it will have to be in the fall starting in September. I will write about my concerns on this in another post, trust me, LOL.
So editing will take up a huge chunk of my time, I will try my best not to work on any other writing projects except maybe the third book in the book series I’m writing. This will be the final book and to have it done by the end of the year, on top of all that I’m already working on would check off all my items on my goals list for the year. I am already over halfway done with that list and I am really proud of myself. Though I had wished to have the book done by now and in the proofreading stage, as most of you already know, I wasn’t feeling the story. But I’m starting to get the itch back for it.
I will be getting my new feature professionally edited as well, my first time with a prof script editor. Placing Finalist for two seperate scrips has given me confidence that I might be doing something well.
And now I will leave you to enjoy your Sunday. I might be getting a cold so I am going to take a nap. 😊
