Another coffee drinking location to mark as my favourite

At the end of February, to start my virtual coffee post I began describing where I’m having my coffee or favourite places that I have had my coffee. So, today the soft cushions of the sofa await me. I plan to wedge myself into the corner comfortably with my legs pulled up. Over top of me, my heated blanket will be set to number four. The cozy heat will be welcoming on this chilly day. The house sits quiet marking this as the perfect time of coffee and reading a good book.

If we were having coffee, I would share with you that I haven’t had much time for personal reading this month. I am making a slow crawl through the Terry Brooks book that I am reading. I think next month I will have a bit more time to read it. The reason I don’t have much personal reading time is because I am working hard on finishing up last minutes edits to my manuscript. In addition to that, I am editing a thirty-seven-chapter fantasy novel for my casual editor job.

If we were having coffee, I would share with you that in the next little while I am going to be doing a cover reveal! I am excited to share.

If we were having coffee, I wouldn’t have anything else to share. It really has been all about reading, writing and editing. How are things with you my virtual coffee friend?

  1. Should I feel even a tad guilty for the extra work you’re putting into your novel? I hope not, because I think you’ve got some great work in hand.
    I’ll get those last few chapters done ASAP. For my time reading, you’re final chapters have my top priority slot. Back to you soon.

    1. Honestly Gary, I think I created that new novel writer faux pas of being in a hurry to get that story out there before I read through it enough times. The whole process has been a learning curve for me and I can say that I have learned a lot this round. With book Two, I think I will make a few extra passes through the story before I farm it out to readers.

      That said, you have provided excellent feedback. A couple of the consistency points you flagged for me, had me thinking hard to adjust them accordingly in the narrative but I love that part. My goal is to put the best book out that I can because I want people to enjoy reading it, so that means work has to be done to get it to that point.

      I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work with the feedback!

      1. It’s been my pleasure. I realized early in getting to know you that you have a level of talent that I hoped to learn from and am so pleased that my poking through your work has been helpful.
        It’s made me a better writer because you read and react to many of my articles and now, I cannot be caught doing something I called you out on – that would be too embarrassing – right?

    1. It is funny Maria because I have questioned that idea of a writing/editing bubble when I have heard other people talk about. I wondered, why they didn’t have time to read a novel for personal enjoyment…Now, I know. That Bubble is real and so very important to the process.

      Thanks for stopping in. Hope you have a great week.

      1. It is most definitely real. My daughter and I have invited a sign in sign language for that bubble. When I make that sign she knows I will get back to her ASAP, but I cannot break the flow of my writing that very second. Good luck with everything! Thank you ❤
