I’ve reached a point where I’m tired of being unpublished.
I’ve written eight books and haven’t published a single one.
There are many reasons for this. But they boil down to not editing and not giving as much time to editing as I do to the first draft.
This caused me, at times, to hate writing.
After trying to edit one book, I got tired of it and wrote a couple more short stories as well as a novella.
So with every screw up a plan is born.
This plan will allow me to write something new as well as edit. I tried editing at night. It took away from time with my wife.
I love time with my wife. Sure, most nights were sitting across the room from each other reading. In Las Vegas I was lucky to get that.
I have two novels I’ll be editing for the year. I want to make sure they’re as perfect as possible.
Last summer 13 agents said no to one of my books. After having my writing group go over it, they noticed glaring issues only a different set of eyes can give a story.
I’ll be giving my writing group one of these. The other I’ll post in various places.
I will publish this year.
