I just shared a post from one of my favorite bloggers: BlondeWriteMore – if you are a fellow writer, you should check it out! I was just thinking yesterday about how to connect more with my main character in my book Picture of the Past, and I think this will be very helpful as I get ready to edit it.
Speaking of which, I just printed it out for the first time! You know, now that I have my printer and everything. 😛 It is so rough, with so many mistakes, and not even divided into paragraphs or chapters – but it is 127 lovely pages that are all mine.
I am still concentrating on my book Ethrill, as I would really like to finish it this year. But unless my character decides to hurry up and return home, I have a sneaking suspicion that my husband’s prediction is right – and it will either end up being a very long book or two books. . .
Well, I guess we’ll see. You can only rush your characters so much, and he seems determined to take this long journey with the elf (can you tell I was reading Lord of the Rings when I started writing this? Hey – at least I am willing to admit it.)
But if you want to see my planned writing schedule for the fall, as well as my plan for NaNoWriMo, check Once Upon a Story, because I don’t feel like rewriting it all. 😛
So, remember my “Training a Husband” rant? And how immediately before the rant, I mentioned I was thinking about asking my friends to do the writing exercises with me? Well, one of my friends read that, and immediately went out and ordered the book! How awesome is that? My Gibson Girls are the best! It in the words of Mr. Bennet, “I defy even Sir William Lucas himself to produce a more valuable [friend(s)].”
Oh, more good news! We won our contract, so I’m not out of a job! Always a good feeling.
And now back to my work (wherein-I-may-ahem-be-interspersing-some-writing-ahem-please-don’t-tell).
