First post of 2018-I screwed up

I can't believe it is February already and this is my first post of the year. I have been so busy rewriting one of my earlier books. Even though I  published  "T.T. Gristman" a few years ago. I decided to revisit the story to see why it didn't sell. I understand why the readers didn't really get interested in the story; so like all writers I decided it was good enough book it just needed a little tweaking and rewriting. Since I have so many books waiting to be finally edited, I chose to rewrite the story instead and rename it "T.T. Gristman/ Time Traveler" I think the readers will enjoy the rewritten YA story. Still awaiting editing of my story "Saddle Spur" my first western. My editor is having a rough time making time to edit. I know I have a tendency to have word fits as my editor calls it, this slows the process down. I have a couple of other books ready to join the list of books to be edited. As a writer, I can't seem to stop working. I just wish I would remember to blog once in a while so my readers know what is going on in my world. Once you start on a book, it is hard to do other things with the story rolling around in your head demanding attention everyday. Do any of you other writers have this problem?  I know I need to spend more time on the computer not just writing books but communicating to the world. I decided since I have never written a best seller that I should not call myself an author, just a writer, Hopefully by the time I leave this world, someone will pick up one of my books and spread the word to others.  Being old enough to retire, I know the clock is ticking so I won't be here forever but I would love to write just one story that hits the top 10 charts. Anyway, I have typed enough for tonight. Talk back and remember I'm always listing. Have a great week!
