focus on really what’s most important, that is getting writing projects done.
So, this morning I first called The University of Alaska Press, to see if they had read my proposal. The answer, from the assistant editor, was that she had read the proposal and parts of it did interest her, that is the parts about the Alaska State Fair History and The History of Recycling in Alaska. So, I will take another look at the manuscript as a whole, revise it, and then send it in. My thinking right now is to include less personal information in the draft to her. I can do this.
I then called Sharon at Relevant Publishing. She’s the woman who had the author’s booth at the Alaska State Fair. She indicated to me that she hadn’t gotten to it because there have been family issues, which of course, for her sake, and that of her family, I won’t go into. I told her that my proposal is the least of her concerns at this point in time, which I mean.
Okay. So, my plan is to again put my heart and soul back into my writing-related endeavors. I’m first going to go over my Forks draft, taking out a lot of the personal information, and I’ll then resubmit to editor at the University of Alaska Press.
I’m also going to print out a second copy and have that one, unedited, ready to share with Sharon. And lastly, I’m going to print up The Gift of a Good Ride, revise that proposal, and send it on to Rebecca at Trafalgar Press.
Maybe I didn’t do this previously because I needed a break from it all. I work hard and tirelessly, so my subconscious may at times be shouting at me to take a break. Dunno. Will never know. What I do know is that I feel good right now about having gotten back on the writing track.
