I got it done! Article number four was sent off today!
That means that I can return to the Kissing Bridge in West Montrose and continue the editing process.
I was visiting a neighbour after work for a short time and she said she has memory issues that don’t allow her to read novels because she can’t remember characters and details from the time she puts it down to the time she picks it back up again. I told her I would have to compile my short stories for her because they won’t take long to read and she’d be able to recall the entire story by the end. I did let her know then that half the time I don’t remember the characters I have created! That on this, my second edit, I still have to resort to looking at the sticky note on the inside of the binder where I wrote down all the character names and ages for quick reference!
I also realized that I have never read my own work… not really. I have articles published on a variety of websites, eleven novels, half a dozen (or a few more) short stories and if I do start reading through anything it’s usual to edit. The items I have written for the Rural Post I have not read but looked for them in the papers by headline only.
I’m taking it easy still today… yes, I worked all day and I’m incredibly tired… but no headache for which I’m grateful! The weather is changing again so that could mean big trouble.
I’m hoping not!
