Quick update

A lot has been going on, but I haven't been able to post due to time constraints.

The other month I finally heard back from Writer's House. They liked the manuscript and the characters but felt the story flowed unnaturally.
This goes with the rejection that said it read "stilted" and what Jeff told me long ago. He said it was stiff. I should've realized long ago what this meant.

The other month I realized how to fix it. I needed to find my "voice". Well it occurred just how I should do that and now I'm tweaking the manuscript, fixing things and reshaping it with my true voice. I feel really good about this.

Meanwhile, we've all been very sick. Hopefully this accursed flu will leave.

That's all for now. Talk to you faceless people later.
