I just finished the third of my murder mysteries about modern day Tombstone! It weighed in at around 499 pages and way too many words. Unfortunately, I’ve already started the fourth. I know, I should be editing, but I’m rather obsessively writing.
About two weeks ago I finished – or think I finished my first ‘spiritual’ book of essays. My working title is A Walk On Water. I’ll hit it soon, with edits. I’ve already managed to blackmail some poor, unsuspecting, nice person into reading it for me. The big question with it is do I remove some of the essays about women and put them over into the book about Paul and women? I’ve started that one, too.
I’ve also begun working on edits of the devotional. The original manuscript is 600 pages – way too long. Since I was unable to get permission from the so-called ‘christian’ writer whose work I had quoted, I’m having to remove some stuff. No biggie. I think the book is better without it.
It looks like I am about half-way there with a series of essays and commentaries about pedophiles and dealing with life – afterward. I have begun working on the book on opera commentary and essays.
The other day, I complained to one of my editors that I’m just not in a mood to edit. She reminded me that with what I’m going through with the parents, my head is probably doing all I can do. That makes sense.
