Book Update #5 - The Editing Begins

So... it’s been awhile since I’ve talked about my book.

Usually when someone goes dark on their blog or any site they may use to talk about their book and/or writing, it regularly means bad news. The person either gave up entirely or fell behind in some way. Perhaps maybe they still are chasing that dream, but really aren’t making any substantial process.

I can say that is not the case with me at all. Not by a long shot.

In my last update, I wrote about how I had decided to raise the story count for my book (which is a collection of short stories) from ten stories to thirteen. I also stated that I had written the eleventh story for the book. Well, boys and girls, I finished those last two stories. I hit my goal of thirteen and can now say that the writing process of my book is finally complete.

Which brings me to the next thing I have been up to.


I completely re-wrote the first story I had finished for my book. If you read what I had before and compared it to what I have now, it’s insane how much my writing has improved. I guess the old saying is true, practice makes perfect.

The truth of why I haven’t been posting on here as much basically comes down to time. I landed a new job at the tail end of last year and have been working hard. The free time I have either goes into writing or just relaxing. However, now that I am more accustom to this new position I am going to try to not be so distant from this blog.

You can always follow me on Twitter and Facebook if you’d like to hear from me more often.

That’s all I have for now. Until next time... keep writing.
