Writing at last!

I hope I'm not over-reacting to my recent work, but I seem to be finding my way into writing again. During the past two or three weeks I've revised the three short stories I wrote I can't even remember when. Was it last year, or the year before? Anyway, I've revised them and will now re-post them on Critique Circle for hopefully several critiques. If that goes well, I'll probably self-publish them as a group on Amazon and sell them for ninety-nine cents.

I'm surprised that I'm writing again. Only a couple of weeks ago, I was wondering if I will ever write again. I even wrote a couple of blog posts discussing the issue, but I did not publish them right away, because I wanted to write all three posts I had in mind before publishing the first one. Before I wrote the third one, I was writing again. So I haven't posted them. Maybe I'll put them in a page on my blog just to show what I was going through at the time.

I'm now taking a look at one of my novels and seeing what I can do to make it as good as I can. This is where I'm hoping I'm not over-reacting, because I'm only beginning this project. But I feel comfortable with where I am.  I even purchased Scrivener, because I’ve read so many good things about it. I even hope to download my self-published novel Only the Lonely to Scrivener and, because Scrivener formats automatically to Mobi, I’ll upload it back to Amazon, formatted correctly. But truth be told, so far I’m finding Scrivener mind-boggling. Hardly anything works the way I think it’s going to work. Well, I won’t go into it. I’ll just say it’s going to take awhile for me to figure out how it works.

Wish me luck.
