I realize no one has answers for a problem manuscript without reading it, but your comments helped. It makes a difference for me to know others have had or are going through some of the same writing scares. Those who said distance is a good thing are right. It always helps to come back to something with fresh eyes. That’s why I can’t understand how some writers whip out books, poems and stories and send them out into the world, immediately. Yes, there are authors who write five and six books a year! How do they do it? Without a doubt they have more smarts (and organizational skills) than I do.
Mustang Library, Senior Citizen Center, Chamber of Commerce and a bunch of other things. Good vibes in this library!
