Rewites

If you haven’t noticed I kind of been failing a blogging lately. I’m just super busy and just don’t have time. My bad.

Anyway, I am here to talk about rewritings. I wrote a novel a few years ago and my attempts to get it published epically failed. So I did what every author/agent/anybody who wrote about publishing said in a blog. I stopped. I left the file untouched on my computer for months. I didn’t query, I didn’t read it and I didn’t even think about it. On Wednesday I went back and started rewriting it. I put new ideas in places where the plot dragged. I added witty dialogue and decided to give one of the subplots a facelift. When I’m done I’m going to comb through it, yet again for months. Maybe this time things will go better.

Oh and for chocolate. I’m selling chocolate for school. You’d think it would be easy. It’s not.

Happy Reading!

Reading while traveling

I recently got back from a long trip to Disney World over spring break. I packed a book with me hoping to get some reading time while on the motor coach. Unfortunately I was distracted by all of my friends, and the movies and the stops every three hours. I can honestly tell you that I only read one page of that book. It’s sad to be an avid reader and not have time to read.


On the way back I was a little better. I bought a book. Yes I went to Disney World and bought a book. I wanted to buy The Kingdom Keepers Ridley Pearson, but Disney didn’t have the first one. (I placed a hold on it at the library today though).

What I did buy was Fairest of All: A tale of the Wicked Queen by Serena Valentino. The title explains it all really.

I read about forty pages on the way back. I could have read more but, I was in and out of sleep the whole time. Well that's traveling for you. So what do you do on a long trip? Post a comment below.
