I’m learning the value of editing different (competing) works together. Instead of working on a single project alone, many projects can inform each other. For instance, I can take something from one piece and transfer it into another, thus enhancing the overall vision.

Soon I’ll have a number of projects finished and ready for publication. Perhaps I’ve become a bit too defensive about not wanting to be published. This blog is published, but this is different. I mean my fiction. Of course I want to get published, yet I still have no itching intention or inclination to submit. Play the game. Maybe I should. Get a few stories published, win a contest or two. All in an effort to get an agent for the books that matter. The novels.
