Thought of the Day: Out to get some gardening done this week. To that end, I may take off a day or two from my regular project schedule. Don't know yet.
I'm editing The Angel's Guardian in the evenings. I can safely say that, from Book One of Melody to it, I've slowly "found my voice." The edits over time and the volumes in between have become progressively easier and less clunky.

Let's see: so that's thirteen years of full-time writing to find my voice? That's why I don't take seriously anyone who claims to have done so who has been writing only a short time--say, ten years. It's just not something that happens overnight!
