Tests, etc

My dearests,

My absence is due to loads of readings and exams with the soon closing of the semester.  My time management on this forum sucks, but I hope this changes as the present course I am doing is speaking of this as well.  Training to be a self directed learner is proving both exciting and challenging.  Yes, am lamenting… but all the same, my first score was very good!  yeaa to that indeed!  Enough on exams and the pains thereof.

I do remember writing about Friday hopes, where I was to meet my editor for the short story’s progress on being edited.  I was disappointed and of course I voiced my disappointment to her on the late start to doing my edits.  However, we got past that, she did apologise and I relented.  It was not a best first experience and am sure many of you may have had such with editors and deadlines.  If you did, you can drop me a link if written of.  I am still deciding on a name.

On the flip side, though she went 2 days  beyond my deadline, I am elated to say that yes, it is completely edited and to be revised by  another editor whom I have found not to long after.  My graphics artist is helping with the cover and other minor adjustments.  I have to publish this year, have to, have to, have to, have to.

The compendium of prose and poetry is already formatted for printing.   I liked ‘The Sungoddess’ as the name but my graphics artiste and others I have asked about it, do not. This too, is being decided upon for its name and cover.  All in all with where my work has come too this far, I feel proud to have kept moving, even though it may be slow.

Like the turtle and the tortoise my dears, never ever give up.

Never think that you are not going to meet that finish line.

Look at the things that you need to change around you and do just that.

Always look deeper within.

Write again soon.  Can’t wait to catch up on some of your writings too.
