Woo hoo! I have finished my second revision, incorporating more character development, setting, and description. Now I am going through it one more time on the computer before I give myself a bit of time and then print it out and read through it again. Once that is accomplished, it is time to give it to my editor (the one who told me I only had the skeleton and needed to add the flesh). He was so right.
I have no idea whether this is a story anyone will want to read and that is freaking me out a bit, but I can't control that right now. I can only make it the best I can make it and then begin the journey towards publishing.
I'm going to need you guys more than ever when that day comes.

Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here on Monday and Tuesday. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair.

"The way to do is to be."
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs..(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly."
