Preoccupied

You may have noticed that I haven’t posted much so far in 2019. In fact, I only posted 3 times in January and not at all yet in February.

Or maybe you don’t notice such things, but I have.

It’s not that I haven’t done any writing or that I don’t have anything to say. I’ve simply been preoccupied.

Last fall I hired a freelance developmental editor, Kimberly Shumate, to help me finish my memoir manuscript. She gave me excellent feedback, including constructive comments on organization, word choice, dialogue, and more. And so I’ve been preoccupied with addressing each of her comments and making the manuscript the best it can be.

This past weekend I addressed the final issue. I now have a 50,272-word, 17-chapter (plus Prologue and Epilogue), 164-page manuscript. It still needs a copy edit, but it’s done.

Now begins the challenging task of finding a publisher. Or deciding to self-publish and which self-publishing company to work with. Prayers for wisdom and open doors would be appreciated.

Oh, and I’m also considering changing the title. My working title has been “My Name Is Beloved.” Not sure if that’s going to stick. We’ll see.

About Linda Kruschke

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.
