In the Heat of the Moment

Throughout the country a heat wave is searing the landscape. If a satellite photo were to be taken of the United States you would see heat waves shimmering up towards the heavens. Too bad my laptop isn't smokin' too. I seem to have a problem right now, one of boredom. I am transcribing my romance back onto my computer. You see, I lost it to a hard drive crash and my backup disappeared in my last move. I now have bald patches where I have pulled my hair out by the hands full.  The only bright spot was that I had a print out that I was using to edit. I can't seem to effectively edit on screen. Lucky me!

So, here I sit, taking a break from typing like a secretary, the only bright spot is my own writing and I enjoy reading my writing. Not too very vain am I? I feel that if a writer doesn't enjoy his own work, then who else will?

I have had a lot of help in the last few weeks. The Compuserve Writers Forum has been a second home for me, and all the wonderful members have taken time and effort to read my offerings and comment on them. And there is an added benefit. One of my favorite author is a mainstay--Diana Galbadon. What more can a reluctant author ask for? Oh yeah, a completed first draft would be nice.
