Empty the Kitchen Sink

If you read my post on Let’s Talk About Death you might remember where I said we’d all look back on the blurb and laugh. If not, please go back and take a look. No worries, I’ll wait right here.

Back? Excellent.

That blurb alludes to about, oh, I dunno, at least ten individual potential manuscripts.

I threw in the kitchen sink and tossed in everything else I wanted the series to cover. Not the first installment but the thrust of the whole series. Over-zealous much? That’s a lot to ask of a single novel, eh? Good thing it’s fantasy …

Anyhoot, I’ve since done quite a bit of house-cleaning (not literally, here, folks, I hate cleaning the actual house) and have revised the scope quite considerably. Then revised the manuscript to suit. It’s depressing at how much ended up in the “later” pile, yet, exhilarating at how much tighter on on-point the remains have become.

Throwing in the kitchen sink isn’t the problem, it’s filling it up with stuff and then not realizing that water (read: plot) went right down the drain. So empty that sink, check for structural integrity, plug the holes, then open the tap and see if it holds water.

Written by Ordinary Dreams

Becca loves (in no particular order, ok, the husband comes first, probably) triking, Jeeping, her Spinone, her husband, and his Whinerarner (and we both greatly miss his sooper-dooper cutie-patootie of a mutt, Mia Mutt, and her Labradorable, Sophie). The universe presented an opportunity on a platter and, not being one to deny the universe, she took the chance to chase a dream by transforming from accidental geek to intentional writer. Though life now leads back to the cube world she plans to put even that experience to good use in her writing. {muauuahhhahhhahhh}

Now time for the shameless plugs. Please see also her site with her husband about their motorcycle (and some Jeeping) travels, Chasing Blue Sky, her site as a Real Estate Broker in Colorado, SpinOne Group, her site as a Notary Public and Notary Signing Agent in Colorado, and/or the Facebook pages for Lu C. FurL.C., and  Mia Mutt (Sophie was pre-this-sort-of-thing), and Pigasus Studio.
