What's Missing?

This is what my writing nook has looked like most of the time lately.  Empty!  Life has been busy.  Since the first, I have written one chapter of Synchronized.  I also spent a good deal of time setting up the new web-site (which still needs a lot of work). 

Tonight, I was chastised by the thumbnail that tagged along with a message I sent that referenced this site.  It was the picture of my Christmas story in the trash.  Time to move forward.

I am going to continue to write Synchronized.  I am excited about that!  What may be of more interest to those of you on this site is the fact that I am going to start the rewrite process of Wil Clarey: School of Hard Knocks!  I think I have had enough time to distance myself from the first writing. 

Right now, most of it is in such bad shape (my daughter/editor says it's some of the worst writing she's seen from me) that I have my work cut out for me.  The story is there, but there are grammatical errors galore and significant inconsistencies (from changes in mid-story).  I am also wrestling with Wil's personality development. 

It is a heavy book in which Wil goes through some serious changes.  Probably my biggest struggle is keeping it fun to read while dealing with serious issues.  Your ideas and prayers are welcome!

I will post a few excerpts here.  Expect the first in a couple of weeks.  Thanks for your patience in the meantime!
