I wanted to write a post about revising and some of the great posts I have been reading lately. However, I am going to hold off until I have more to say on the subject.
Right now, I am at a stand still. I have started writing out note cards to outline each individual chapter (I am not much of an outline person). I think then I can really see all what I need to cut, add, and expand on. I really have hit a road block at Chapter 3, so I know that I have to really look at the bigger picture.
In other news, we redid our kitchen tile this past weekend and booked an upcoming weekend in the Twin Cities for the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. There will be some Asian food, booths, and presentations the weekend we chose so I am hoping to gather some inspiration from that. I am in my editing week right now for Stone Circle (my writer's group) and reading a friend's manuscript. Maybe doing all this editing will push me forward with my own.
This is a learning experience, that is for sure. I am not giving up.
P.S. Today is the 90th anniversary of when woman gained the right to vote, otherwise known as the 19th Amendment. To think, my grandmother was 15 years old when this passed. It amazes me to think that she didn't have those rights at one point in her life. I wish I would have been able to ask her what she thought when she heard it was passed.
