Carving Out Rooms

Writing–the excruciating, painstaking process of trying to create a story and portray it on paper as you see it in your mind.

I’ve spent the last four plus months drafting, writing, and rewriting my newest manuscript. Now, with the end result just within my grasp, I come to my favorite part of the journey—etching out rooms.

If you’ve ever seen any home design shows, you’ll understand. Taking that unused nook, adding a mix of elbow grease and imaginative thought, and turning it into a brand new closet, or reading room, or whatever it is that sheds fresh light to the area.

That’s where I am with my book. I have all the bones, all the meat packed on top. Now, before I move on to my next project, it’s time to go through every section, every sentence, every word and see if I can bring that unexpected spark to my nook.

To good times–woo-hoo!
