I'm still here!

So why is it that I've seemingly abandoned my blog?

Is it that I've stopped work on my novel?

Nope. I've edited over 200 pages and am still working steadily.

I think it's because of The Artists's Way. Every morning I write three pages about whatever's rattling around in my head, including my thoughts on the writing process. The morning pages have helped me deal with my writing-related fears and so I haven't had much to blog about. Guess I need to come up with a new theme for Pointed Squiggle. I am finding a balance and feel much more at peace about pretty much everything. Amazing, huh?

Right now I'm editing the 5th 50-page chunk of my manuscript. This is the trickiest chunk by far since the story here has a couple of holes I've been trying to figure out how to fill. I think I've got it worked out, though and once I have this section nailed, I'm expecting the remaining chunks to go faster. As nutty as it is to admit, I should be ready to send the whole thing out before too long.

Wow!

Hi Renee:
Would you recommend THE ARTIST'S WAY? I have it, but I haven't cracked it open yet. Just don't have the wherewithall for a big process right now, seems all I can do to feed everybody, some days...(G)

Cindy- I know what you mean about all there is to do already and how tough it is to squeeze in something new. I'm going to write a blog entry about my thoughts on The Artist's Way, which should answer your question.
