Weekend Update

I haven’t updated in a little while so I thought that I would correct that.

I don’t have a lot going on.  Due to the fact that I am not recovering as quickly as I anticipated, it has kept my productivity low.  I’m doing what I can here and there but even with an incredibly supportive family, not a lot is getting done.

I am currently working on my synopsis so that I can submit my novel for publication.  One would think that summing up the entire novel in three to five pages would be easier than writing the whole novel itself but it is not.  I think as far as progress, I have summed up about 3/8’s of the novel.  Yes, 3/8.

I also purchased Scrivener.  I played around with the demo for a while and since I’m a chronic NaNoWriMo winner, I took advantage of the ‘goodies’ section for winners and digitally downloaded my copy at half price.  I love a bargain.  Once I have gone through all the tutorials and possibly a Camp NaNoWriMo or traditional NaNoWriMo I will give you all a complete run down.  I am hoping that the software helps me keep better track of my notes and research since my current method isn’t working for me at all.

And that’s it.  That is all that I have right now.  I hope that as the dust settles from our new addition and as I heal up the rest of the way, my productivity will once again elevate to a higher level.  Thanks for your patience.

A New Little Addition

On a personal note I wanted to say that the arrival of my second child occurred on schedule this past week and we are all home now adjusting to the changes.  My recovery is taking a little longer than I anticipated but it doesn’t help that I keep forgetting to take my pain medicines.

I still have my novel on my mind and have been getting some editing done here and there.  Luck Hawkins lit a fire under my rear to get my novel out ASAP and I still plan to do that so this is my final run through my novel for now.  I’ll see what the publishers have to say once I stick myself out there.

Thanks for your patience in this transition.  🙂
