Okay, I suspect you’re wondering who in the world is this that I’ve received a blog entry from? Well, you chose to follow me as Brenda Sackville. Sadly enough, that was a nom d’plum, or a pseudonym. I’ve decided to go with my actual name, which is what you see.
I’ve still been working on my manuscript and querying. *sigh*
I’ve thought about adding a widget showing my progress, but I wasn’t sure how to do that. I guess I’ll have to do it the old fashion way (what I did last time).
I’m sitting here on my couch and trying to edit. Next to the back door, my cat is snoozing happily (I can’t say in the sun because it’s cloudy today). My 32 inch TV is off. Well most of the time it’s off. The only time I’m watching is when the news is on. What’s surprising is that I turned the radio off and have pandora playing barely at hearing level.
At least I’m a quarter the way through the edits. Writing is easy, editing is a bear. 😦

I’ve been given such a lovely endorsement from Stuart it makes me feel guilty of not posting here more often. The best reason I can give as to why is that I’ve been busy on my first revision. Revisions are much harder than writing. When you’re first putting down the story you don’t have to worry about if it works or not. The goal is to get the gist of the story down.
I’ve done that, so the easy part is finished.
Maybe I should post a weekly update to show how far along I am (meaning in word count).
