It has taken a few days, okay a week to get back to writing here. Why? Well because I haven’t had anything to say. But I promised my spiritual writers group that I would write something before Monday. What do I write? That is the question, well I could write the good/bad news I got yesterday. Good because the Literary agency that asked for more of my Angel of Mercy manuscript said they would look at it again if I got a professional editor. I went to Reedsy Writer of which I’m a member and picked 5 editors to query for help. I’ve had two responses, wanting more information. Would be nice if I got a third then I would have to pick the one I want to help. Being as I’m in Canada I picked a Canadian editor not an American as I did last time I used an editor from Reedsy. The one I picked last time was a great help but with the exchange it was a little expensive. A death happened yesterday as well. A dear friend succumbed to Cancer after about 18 months of fighting.
Yesterday was also Remembrance Day, an emotional day anyway. Remembering my uncles who died fighting during World War 1 the war to end all wars, but it didn’t. My Dad’s brother served in both wars and came home to die on Vancouver Island in his 70’s or 80’s I’m not sure how old he was but he did survive both wars. My father had flat feet so was unable to serve even though he applied. He fought on the homefront, by farming. My brother was on his way to Halifax to join the Navy when the WW2 ended.
