I am digging into the archives to post a few times this week. Not feeling 18 carat, and wrestling with everything. Hopefully, my problems will pale into insignificance when seen from another viewpoint.
I awoke this morning with the usual week day feeling. Then I happened to watch some of the breakfast news on TV, not something I do very often as it usually depresses me. Today turned out to be worse than usual. It was far too early in the day for such worldwide confusion and I really wish I had been writing my book instead.
The human race seems to be doing its utmost to ruin everything it touches and I don’t understand it. It’s as if we don’t care and I am sure that most of us do. None of the people who are in charge (politicians and world leaders alike) seem to think logically anymore (if they ever did!)
People have said that we are ‘going to hell in a handcart’ but they are wrong. The vehicle we are travelling in has a supercharged engine and will get us there in no time at all!
Seen from space, our world is a really beautiful place. A stark contrast to the scenes of anger and poverty that most of us see every day.
We should be taking better care of our planet, as we wouldn’t dream of wrecking our own des res, now would we?
Enough of all that. I said that I shouldn’t watch the news, so now you know what happens when I do.
I have been working hard trying to finish my WIP, PayBack, and for once my characters are not talking to me at all. I fear this may be bad news, for I already know that editing any book is hard, if not downright impossible. The thought that I may have bitten off more than I can chew comes to mind. Coupled with wondering if I have lost the plot!
I have a very sneaky feeling that I have made this one far too complicated, resulting in one hell of a tangle. None of this makes me want to finish it, but I know I must. If I can find where I have put my eternal optimism, there could be a diamond nestling among the dross. Pretty sure there is, for I distinctly remember some really good chapters…
