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.
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.
