A Hot Mess!

I'm deep in editing mode right now and this project is taking me way longer than I thought and had hoped. I really hope it's not for nothing but I keep holding onto the words that author, Jayne Ann Krentz aka Amanda Quick told me at Nationals last year, "No writing is wasted writing."

The story is improving. So that means I am improving.
Where that will lead, I don't know. As an artist and being close to my work it's hard to tell exactly where I am on the craft scale compared to other writers. Now I know some may say you shouldn't compare yourself to anyone else, but that's not true. You have to know what's out there and ultimately sell your story against what else is out there. I guess in the end all I can do is be true to myself and the story and do my best which is what I do with each book I write.

Now on the the hot messery...So tonight The Real Housewives of Atlanta are back tonight. I'll be watching. I can't want to see all the crazy antics. Check out the trailer. Big Poppa is still on he scene. SHE by Sheree has some competition and NeNe is still NeNe. Yay! Will you be watching with me?

I love the illustration! One time an English Teacher said: "edit, edit and edit some more." However, as a Professional Writer, I'm sure you know when enough is enough. Keep us posted! :)

I often think editting must be the very best career. Reading all of these wonderful books. I may tune in to see the most recent cat women really treat one another like this? It's entertaining for sure.

Funny, one summer I went to camp and we had to bring "mess" kits, and I remember everything fitting perfectly into place. Think of the mess as a way to best fit all that inspires your heart in one spot. Only you can make this happen.
You know me, I have no patience (for tv) for those housewives. I prefer time with my own real housewife friends, or a good book. (Perhaps I still hear my mother tell me there was always something better to do that watch tv.)
