A Little Better...

So I'm resorting to bringing my computer into town and connecting on the library's WiFi. This still isn't ideal, but much better than getting a mere 45 minutes to do anything I want to do online. I at least get 2 hours. That is more than enough time for me to get re-connected with you all and start reading blogs again.

I've been feeling rushed in doing my online thing as well as paranoid about who is looking over my shoulder as I write. :D Maybe I should start writing erotica and see who walks away from my computer. ::Snorts:: That'd be kinda funny, but I wouldn't do it.

Even though this is a bit of a drag, it does get me back online. I've got just over 3,000 words revised on LoBR. I wrote up a new beginning....not sure if I mentioned that before I moved. So the word count I have up there currently is still part of the revision but, like I said, I started a new beginning. It is moving better, I like where it is and it plays out very well. We'll see what happens. I've got to get things moving or I will not be doing NaNo this year. I'm already behind in my revising of last year's book. To begin another and have it waiting in the wings until I'm done with those revisions would kill me. I hate being so disorganized and am trying to improve myself to finish what I have started. Otherwise, no one would get to read these damn books. Lol!

I read lots of blogs where authors have two or three WiP's and it amazes me how they can juggle so many. I get that once you get an idea, you have to write it down so as not to lose it, but I get so caught up in it, nothing else would get finished so I patiently plug along and keep it in the wings of my mind. I have little notes here and there of what I want to do. So if I do participate in NaNo this year, I'm moving to the Paranormal genre. I've got an awesome story waiting in the wings, dusty as they are. So perhaps it would be worth it to get it written out and dust it off once I'm done with revisions. I certainly have to start sticking to my personal deadlines.

Hope you all have had a great week and have a wonderful weekend. I'm praying for sunshine. :D

Hi Mel:
I know what you mean. I have my epic fantasy which may be considered high fantasy as well. In addition I am working on a series of short stories and I just got a new idea. When I'll have time to do that, I don't know.
You can follow me on facebook off my blog site.

I only work on one project at a time. I'd confuse myself otherwise.

Glad you've at least partially overcome the obstacles! And very glad to hear revisions are making your story flow more smoothly... always a relief to make things better instead of worse.
