I just finished reading my book from cover to cover. I skipped a lot a things that needed fixing, I just wanted to get a sense for what I have done, where it was going, how I got there, did it move, did it feel and most of all was it worth trying to fix.
Without a doubt I feel it is worth trying to make flow and fit together to make an adequate book. For awhile there I was thinking it wasn’t worth the effort. I was worried I was letting the love for my story and characters were holding me to a failed idea.
Thankfully now I see I need to fully invest myself in this book. I see it is what I wanted it to be—I just need to trim the edges and eliminate the parasites dragging my story down.
I was very surprised to read some of the material I have composed, it was quite well, and is proof the muse does exist. I couldn’t compose stuff like that on my own. When I get in the zone it’s this out of body experience, where I experience a journey from who knows where.
I love seeing the story as I write, I just hate trying to weed out the normally me parts.
Thx so much for your comments, your help has led me down a road to where I see my goal clearly. A place where I know i belong.
Soon I’ll be starting the dreaded synopsis. It’s pretty sad when you have to sell a 300+ page book in three paragraphs.
I am afraid my learning curve just hit a big bend.
thx for any comment you might leave...
