Three years ago I started this story and now I’m finished…I don’t even know how I’m supposed to feel about this. To tell you the truth, actually completing this story was something that I thought about often but it was more in the abstract sense. I never actually thought I would reach this point (don’t ask me why). I think I have a few gifs that pretty much sum up my conflicting emotions.
Yeah I’m freaking out. But I’m also so, so , so excited! I still have a few months before I have to hand the whole thing over to my editor. I want to go over it in its entirety to make sure that I’m 100% happy with it. Then it’s off to the publishers. I plan on having The Lost Guardian on the market by March 21. If for some reason that changes I’ll be sure to let you know but as of right now that’s the publication date. The hardest part is done, the actual writing, but there is still so much work that needs to be done.
Till next time guys.
I honestly don’t think that dads really get enough credit. There’s always this big hoopla for mother’s day but we hardly hear anything for father’s day. How sad is that? Dads are just as important as moms and I was lucky enough to have two wonderful dads. My biological dad and I had a shaky relationship, he wasn’t really around but that happens when you have a kid that young. But now we are fixing our relationship and I couldn’t be happier. With that being said, I wasn’t without a father figure growing up. Jimmy, my step dad, was a wonderful father to me growing up. He is the one that instilled the love of the written word in me. Jimmy passed away 11 years ago but I still think of him often. So to all the dads out there, living and gone, thank you for all that you do. I hope you know how much you mean to us.
So for the past few weeks I have been trying to work on another chapter…unfortunately it’s not going well. Let me show you…..
I’m Harley and SuperGirl is my writer’s block
I manage to do a couple of pages a day which isn’t too bad considering, but I’m use to a higher page count. So in an attempt to recharge my batteries I bought some new books. I just finished one called Taken and then I realized something….YA literature has suddenly become more fulfilling that normal fiction. Or at least the ones I tend to pick up. But I’ve also noted that most YA novels deal with the end of the world. I wonder if these authors are trying to start something. But I digress.
All I want to do is get through the last few chapters so I can do one last revision before I send the completed manuscript to my editor. There still so much I have to do before the publication date, which is in March btw. I don’t know the actual date, date yet but as soon as I figure that out I will be sure to let you guys know. Till then I must carry on writing a little each day till I can bulldoze through this blockage. Till next time.
