Back on the editing effort

I spent several hours this morning going over a chapter of one book before switching to another. I wound up with one chapter that required some serious rewording here and there. I’ll need to give this process another good shift, but I’m making some real progress.

The best sign involves Lizzie and the hat. These are short novels by design. I feel like their brand of humor works best in small doses. I completely finished this pass on their story. That leaves me to bounce back and forth between the other two books.

I still have additional passes I want to make, but this version is the hardest one and I’ll be happy to get it finished.

I really need to be thinking about cover art, but we’re constantly broke in this era. I’ll have to earmark funds to get that done. I’d like to publish “Once Upon a Time in the Swamp” sometime before summer. There have been a ton of releases lately and I know of more coming soon. Just have to jump in when I’m ready and let the fates decide.

I want to keep sharing some of my Pinterest boards with you. These are great references for me when looking for something for specific stories. This board is mostly just a bit of whimsy. I shared one of the big ones last time.

While there was a wagon like this waaaaay back in my book, Panama, I haven’t written anything like it since. This board makes me want to take a slow vacation somewhere, and maybe drag Stevie Nicks along for the ride.

Maybe you’ll find something to inspire one of your stories.

  1. Love the Pinterest board. The first original RVs. 🙂 Great progress on the editing. I so relate to the being broke part. Your covers are always so great, though. You have a good graphic artist!

  3. This is a great board. The idea of going places with a wagon like this has romance (and a pain in the butt) written al over it.

  6. Congrats on your progress, Craig.
    Those are some very cool wagons on your Pinterest board. It makes me think of various tv shows I saw and, of course, The Wizard of Oz! 🙂

  7. Congrats on getting more editing done. Your board is fun. It made me remember that I used a wagon like this in the story I put on Vella. Love how colorful they are inside and out.
