Shifting gears

I've got good news and bad news. Let's start with the good news first.

Having reached a stumbling block in my rewrite of "Shifter," a friend of mine offered to read it and give me some advice. I am very thankful she did, and I know it's going to be a better story in the end. I'm actually excited to be making some of the changes and adding some new scenes.

Here's the bad news: Rewriting and editing are hard. And it's even harder to motivate myself to start doing them again, as anxious as I am to see the end product. Whenever I try, I find myself groaning to do something else.

My temporary solution is to step back from it -- a bit. In the meantime, I have been working on a short story and making minor changes to "Royal Blood" in hopes to finish it. Once I get excited about writing again, I think it'll be easier to deal with my problem child ("Shifter"). And I promise, I won't take too long!

Until next time,
Heather Kennison, Author
