I haven’t had much to say about writing lately. I am working on something. It’s a book I started a couple of years ago. I shopped it a few places and got some good feedback but no takers.
Now, I’m revamping it. I think I know what was wrong with it and I’m incorporating some suggestions one editor gave me, which I liked.
It’s slow going. I’ve moved it to a different city, for one thing. I have a whole new cast of characters. I should have just thrown everything out and started over, but I hate to waste! So I have to cull through the old book, picking out the scenes I want to use and rewriting them, bridging the old scenes with new scenes. Lots of work.
I have about 50 pages done and a good, solid synopsis. Another 50 or so pages and I might be ready to send it out.
Home renovation: Rob’s office is done, except for fixing the French doors. Glass man coming on Wednesday (fingers crossed) to make everything better. I had to dig through the garbage bin today and recover part of the old door that I threw away. Then I had to piece it back together. (I felt like Bones piecing together a skeleton.) Did some weeding in the succulent garden, the only part of my yard that isn’t a disaster.
Walked to Taco Bell for dinner. We are leaving on vacation soon and there’s not much left in the fridge.
