Catching up…

So, I’ve been a bit of a hermit lately in the blogosphere. Sorry! I have been working to edit my novel I wrote for NaNoWriMo 2012…it’s the deal I made with myself that I couldn’t do NaNoWriMo 2013 if I didn’t have my 2012 project in the next phase of pre-publishing–at least somewhat. I’m happy to say that it is getting close, and I am trying to figure out what friends love me enough to tell me the truth about if what I wrote last year is worth anything–yes, I want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly about it–honestly–so I can re-work what is necessary to get it into a publishable state. 🙂

I’m grateful for the time of reflection during the editing process…and I’m grateful for the patience of the manuscript. It quietly waits for me through screaming children, dinner prep, and even my own thoughts wandering, pondering, and praying through some recent sad experiences of loved ones.

I have cried with my character’s losses again, as I did while writing it (which has been healing to my soul as I’ve allowed myself to shed tears for what is going on in my present life as well). And, I wonder if the power of the story will speak to others as it does to me. I am hopeful.

So, please pardon my absence. I am juggling life right now, continuing to celebrate gratitude, eating lots and lots of Skittles, and editing…so I can do it all over again!

And, mostly, I am happy! 🙂

Prayers that you are, too…and sending love and light your way…!
