And waves as well.
I admit that the words flowed differently when I wrote Act IV of The Butterfly Chains, directly due to having finished On Writing by Stephen King not hours prior to starting it. They came from a different creative place, and to be blunt I wasn’t sure it was a good one. It was certainly not where I had been for the previous 190some blog entries.
To paraphrase Haley James Osmet in The Sixth Sense, “I see dead words.”
So I edited quite a bit for me. Often I’ll try to add words. Now I looked to remove the ones that were dead wood. Then did that some more.
It was with trepidation that I clicked “Publish.” It is with pride that I announce that, aside from being so well received by Peeker™ Nation as well as a host of others, it was chosen by R. Brennan as a Feature Adult Story in the latest issue of the Book Nook News ePaper.
A date with some fictional characters looms in the immediate future for me. Things like this give me some badly needed confidence opening that door.
Thank you R. Brennan!
