The Homicide Chronicle
Defending the Citizen Accused

I watched The Word last night. The movie was strange, but as a writer, it was interesting and it touched me. It made me rethink what I was doing and why I was doing it. Some of the lines that made me think:
Have you seen it? Have you ever thought what if it doesn’t happen for you? Why do you write?
I have on my list to edit my first novel. My issue, I can’t get started. Now I think I know why. I am too focused on what I hope it’s supposed to look like. Really, I mean what if I waste all this time editing and the book still isn’t good enough.
As writers, we are supposed to read, and I love to read. Lately, reading has been an emotional freeway for me. There are times when I read something so amazing, it inspires me. Then other times, I read something and am totally defeated. No way will I ever be that good. I finished The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien and Gabriel’s Redemption by Steve Umstead. Highly recommend them both.
You might be surprised about which one made me feel what? Have a guess?
I added a few new pages. Check them out and let me know what you think.
This change was inspired by Angi Black’s post – The Break-up – Angi writers a letter to herself. The letter starts – “Dear Old Me, I’m sorry darling. You have to go.” Good stuff, give it a read.
