The Seagull Summary

I know, it’s time for the weekly installment. This week has been rough on my writing, but today, I went to my site and went “Whoops, there it is!” No, seriously, it is today that reminded me I needed to put the next installment up. Or rather, start the first chronicle. What made me remember you ask? Okay, maybe you didn’t, but I’m going to pretend you did. I remembered because I have been editing the fantasy story this relates to and it’s almost ready for another round of submissions. Went through first round, but then I realized it needed something. Anyways, it’s back from beta’s and I’m doing the synopsis.

If you follow me on twitter, you’ll know I’m now calling it “the Seagull Summary” like The Little Mermaid movie. You know, where flounder is trying to help Ariel and tells her father, “And then this seagull came, and it was “this is this” and “that is that” causing all kinds of havoc.

That’s how I see my synopsis. Something that’s supposed to help but is going to wreak havoc on my chances of getting the full read! So what do I do? I procrastinate by doing things us writerly types are supposed to do, like, visit my website and check the comments LOL

And lo and behold, there’s the statement as bold as you please that I’ll be writing the chronicles regularly 😛 So, I’ve reminded myself and shall endeavor to complete the task I’ve set before me in between making curtains and clothes for my children this weekend. Um, the curtains are for the windows, not the children.

Hope you all enjoy my website as I add stories. Nothing fancy here. It’s all about the written word. So pull up a chair, grab your favorite poison, er, cup, and read on!
