A Long Delay

I know it's been a minute since I last posted anything. Sorry about that. I've been caught up reading, editing, writing, and researching. Turns out, it's easy to get lost researching ideas and world building (there are too many articles on Wikipedia to peruse and too many interesting things on Pinterest to gaze upon). And editing can really take it out of a guy. It's not just the work of going back over your writing line by line, but waiting for others to read and revise and criticize and suggest; it's also, the harsh reality of pouring over a story you love and trying to view it for the first time.

Editing is time consuming, sometimes tedious, but 100% necessary for that excellent, ready to publish book you're dying to write and readers are longing to finish...putting off work, school, friends, family, and sleeping, reading while eating simply to get to the next page and dive deeper into the story. 

That's what every author wants for their readers.

Not easy, but totally worth it.

And, if you're curious what I'm currently reading, it's the Night Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks. I bought it as an omnibus from Barnes & Noble.
