Technology is great. The advances in the medical field alone, in the last ten years...
Okay, but this isn't about that. In my humble opinion, technology isn't just for making things happen faster and supposedly (often) better. Technology is fun. I am certainly one to hop on any interesting-looking technology train when it comes along. I’m not an "early adopter," though. Usually I don’t jump on the the little push-car that gets that train started. I wait till mid-train when things are moving a little slower and the cost is a little less.
Yeah, I’m not sure that metaphor works as well as I’d hoped.
Recently I wrote about getting a smart phone. I dragged my housemate into the 21st century shortly thereafter, and she is still muttering about those darn kids and her lawn. But I see her internetting on the go, and I know she reads books sometimes, and we sure text a lot more now that she gave up the flip phone...
And me? I’m still having fun. Since I wrote that post, I have found some more awesome apps.
So, as most of you know, I've been revising Grave Touched since Feb.1st, and I just hit the halfway mark last night after a marathon session of cutting, condensing, and my personal favorite, second guessing.
Yep, that's right. I got great feedback. I also discussed a few things over email with KD and Siri, and I feel better than I did but...the doubts always creep in.
I hope y'all appreciate what we're doing for you. Do you know hard it is for us authors to leave our dark caves and step out into the sunlight? Or any light?
And then, to put ourselves on display, where other people can see us.
It burns, the light.
