Ripping Out Entire Chapters Hurts


        Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe!
So, the last time I posted (two weeks ago), you’ll remember that I said the first draft of Wife Wanted was done (almost, kinda, sorta) and that just one chapter needed to be tweaked (a lot).
I couldn’t have been more wrong! That chapter didn’t just need to be tweaked. It needed to be rewritten. Completely. So I did what I had to do and cut the entire thing so I could start over.
And here I am, two weeks later, still rewriting that chapter. Oh well. It is what it is. I will admit, the rewrite is going much better than the original. More emotion, more humor (I hope). I will also admit, it’s been a little difficult, but anything worth doing is worth doing well (we can thank my father for that little saying…actually, we can thank him for my continued strive for perfection, though I know I’ll never achieve it).  
It's early (very early!) Sunday morning as I write this. Sunday is generally my busy day (so much to do to get prepared for the work week ahead) but this Sunday, there’s more.
My neighbors, who are lovely people, have invited the DH and I to a football party. I’m not a huge football fan (seriously, I could care less about the game and only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials), but I love these people and their generosity of spirit. I always have a good time in their company!
And as that’s the case, I should go…the ironing board is calling my name (and maybe, if I can plan everything well, I might even get some writing in today).

Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!
