I am still on track for August, though a consultation with a lit agent has me reworking the first 50 pages. I hope to begin querying in August but I do have an eye on self publication if that does not work out. I would love to get your advice on how you tracked down an independent editor.
Much of my life was spent under the assumption that the dreaded question "What do you want to be when you grow up?"meant it had to be something that fell in the 9-5 category. A steady paycheck rolling in every two weeks, staff meetings and job titles. It wasn't until the last few months of my moms life, that I realized I was sadly mistaken.

But I didn't love any of them. Writing, however, I have always loved. The power to take a random thought, let it brew for a minute, mind spinning with possibilities as why someone would do that, what would happen if they went here, how would they carry on if that happened. Well, that's just too tempting for me to pass up. Looking at pictures in your mind, and wondering "What if..." That is what writing is for me, playtime mixed with goals, struggle meets determination.
