This is a test at the turn of the New Year 2019.

The Joys of Revision

Posted: June 2, 2015 in Writing

My agent has asked for another revision of my novel, Strengthen the Things Which Remain. I am in a six-month time frame to work with a developmental editor to improve characters and dialogue. This will be my third major revision in two years!

I have been preparing for several days for the Florida Christian Writers Conference 2014 in Leesburg, Florida. Updating, sprucing, revising, planning, reviewing, blogging, printing chapters, printing synopses, editing my elevator pitch. I am ready. My goal is to network, network, network and to pitch my first novel, now titled Strengthen the Things Which Remain.

Shades of Tribulation Tide Rising

A foreshadowing of drones…

This article on the new advanced UAV is an example of what I think of as the “writing Zeitgeist.”  I find that before/after/while I write things in my novels there are often indications in the news and in other writer’s books that I haven’t even read or seen.  I wrote about drones based on insect forms two years ago and just a few weeks ago there was a news item about that being a direction for drones and mini-robots.

“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31

The journey of a thousand miles must begin with the first step. This is my first step: there are so many voices in this world and I have chosen to add another one into the mix. However, I have to ask myself what is my vision and purpose in this endeavor? Will I choose to be edifying and actualizing? Or will I choose to be toxic and rabid? Will I choose to be nourishing and inspiring? Or will I choose to demean and obfuscate? The outcome remains to be seen as this personal evolution unfolds. I hope mostly for good reports and that I will think on these things: whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report.
