I am still on the first revision of "La Bruja del Barrio Loco", and it is going great! Well, the fact that the revision process is moving forward, is great.
I added some more good bits, especially about the bruja stalking the main character. I also keep re-reading the ending, and I think it works. I mean, it's a bit sappy, even for me, but damn, I figure after all that drama and shit the main character and her son have been through, some healing is in order.
On another exciting note, besides the revision process going really well, I finally reconnected with my friend, Marcy. She is also a writer and artist. I am so excited that she will do the cover for this novella because as I have explained in past blogs, I was going to buy images from the web, but nothing was really "right". She has this haunting image of a woman's face I want to use in a more square design. (I mean, book covers don't really have to look like the cover of a book, after all, not even printed book covers.) Come to think of it, the work reminds me of Picasso. Hmmm, maybe that's why I like it so much.
Well, back to the novella. The kids are asleep, and they may just stay asleep for another hour. :)
Keep doing what you love! #Resist
