Chapter 3 of The Wisdom of Hunchy is now available! Enjoy!
My apology for the delay in Chapter 3 of The Wisdom of Hunchy... I had it all prepped and ready to show ya and then due to some error that sprang upon me like a cyber panther from the dark void, I lost it all to the voracious appetite of the shadowy beast - so the revision is on the way, so, Hold Fast!
I didn't know what it would be like to finish a novel. 98,000 words- 328 pages. Almost four years... brings a strange feeling to when you get down to that last line, the perfect ending and you realize 'That's it' and all off those characters you created and all those places you went, have come to some kind of quasi end. Now the scary part, presenting your work to the world. Finding someone who cares enough about the protagonists, heroines and antagonists that you created, that they will give you the ticket for the ride to a bigger world.
Now I delve into the world of query, hoping that those who guard the gate, will love my characters as much as I do and allow us through. The world of publishing - a netherworld, the 'Otherworld', a place you have to go. A place that contrasts and exists outside my illusion - a place that will make me appreciate my own little world, where some kind of creative genius is suppose to live. The world of story telling versus the world of 'story selling'...
Many, many times I have heard, "Its a quest" or "It's a hero's journey" - that's just what it feels like. My creations have finished theirs and I'm just starting mine. I realize that I am afraid to step through the door. If I could just maybe do one more revision - one more edit... procrastination has, 'too comfortable of furniture to ever want to leave the room' - its all inside my head. All so surreal.
