So it has been a little less than a month since my last post. It took us a while to get the internet up and running again, and we are still surrounded by boxes. I have not had much chance for writing, as a result. But I wanted everyone to know that I am, indeed, still alive!
One thing I am noticing is that whenever I try to approach my novel to revise, I feel overwhelmed and do not want to work on it as a result. When I get settled in a little more, I am going to have to revise my method of revising.
At the moment, I have a list of changes I wish to make before letting anyone else read it. I am going to have to go chapter by chapter to decide where which changes go, and how to make them. Some of them are minor, such as a character witnessing something. Others, not so much. I am going to make some fundamental changes to a couple of the characters, to help define them more. But these changes are not going to be easy at all. It means I may have to rewrite entire chapters, or even add or remove some.
So, in short, I will return to writing shortly! I might even try a short, short story for Friday Flash! We shall see!
