The question was posed to me the other night of what would happen if I couldn't write anymore. Honestly, I don't know what I would do. It has become such a part of me that it would be like losing an appendage. or having my family die in a plane crash. there are so many different little personalities in my head that if they weren't there, I know I'd have such a sense of loss over it.

When I come across a time where I'm blocked or, as I am now, having trouble with the editing process, I get moments of wishing I didn't write. Yesterday as I was sitting here trying to decide my best course of action, I was questioning if it was worth it. That was my moment of a mental tamper tantrum. Once I recovered, I recognized that all the work and frustration is very much worth it.

I am in the process of rewriting the first three chapters. This involves dissecting each one and re-piecing it together like some sort of a puzzle and have it all still flow and make sense. I hate puzzles. However, I am enjoying revisiting old scenes and expanding upon some of them. I am actually getting more solid voice in my head for Merrik. This could be because I watch a lot of Robin Hood and can now envision Richard Armitage in that role.

So, back to editing I go. Just wanted to drop in and let everyone know I am still working on things, and am slowly making progress.
