Forgive my absenteeism as of late. After having distanced myself from my manuscript for Magical Universe: The Amulet of Alamin, I returned to it with a fresh pair of eyes donning an editor’s cap.
I sat aside my other projects to commit the past two and a half months to revisions.
I often ponder my journey. I first completed the manuscript in September of 2009, and after years of rejections and revisions I remain undeterred.
I’ve read, I’ve written and I have committed to my craft.
This has helped me understand what I am doing, what I must do and what I will continue to do as I establish my career.
Stephen King once said: "If you don't have the time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that."
That’s precisely what I have done. I confess that this has helped me find the flaws in my writing, and address them accordingly.
I shall resume my other projects, and keep an open mind when feedback is provided for Magical Universe: The Amulet of Alamin.
I’m back! I’m still moving forward. Hope you will continue to accompany me along my “yellow-brick road.”
