I’m not even sure when my last update was. Can someone send me a house elf just to keep track of my calendar? It would be appreciated.
It’s been snowing all weekend here. I love snow. I’m even the weirdo crazy person who loves driving in snow, but we’re stuck in the house because my husband’s pickup is parked behind my car, and trying to get them switched around doesn’t seem like fun.
What am I working on?
Book 1: Beyond the Divide (Paranormal, Urban Fantasy) 9959 words
Book 2: Bound and Unbroken (BDSM Romance) 49,800 words
Goal 1: Finish Bound and Broken and send it to Betas by December 29
Since I only have 1 more week of work before my holiday vacation, this seems quite doable. I’ll probably be adding another 15k to the story.
When I initially set out to write Bound and Unbroken, I wanted 1 POV (Lena’s). Then, I decided that it’d be fun to include Eric, but he’d never let me in his head when I tried to do a scene with him. Back to 1 POV…. but guess what! Now Eric has suddenly decided that he wants me in his head.
So confusing. 😦 At this stage in the game I want to tell him to suck it up and deal, but I also want to dig into his character….
Goal 2: Finalize the cover
It’s coming along! After finally finding a base image that I like and that will capture the mood of the story, I’m happily moving along with cover production. I expect it to be revealed in late January.
Stay sane. 🙂
We are all different and we all have different demands on our time. Why should we all have the same goal? The simple answer is that we shouldn’t. If you want to be a writer, then you have to be able to roll with the punches and adapt to your changing circumstances. If that means changing your goals when your life blows up, so be it. ROW80 is the challenge that champions the marriage of writing and real life.
