Sheesh, I've started about three new blog post drafts and keep getting pulled away to do family stuff or you know, that little thing called writing... Which I'm about to go do now since this morning is a writing morning with Nate being at nursery school for a few hours. I do have some exciting stuff coming up here. A Q&A and giveaway with Dia Reeves, the author of BLEEDING VIOLET. Such am amazing book so I'm super excited to have her here and share this incredible book on May 3rd. Stay tuned for details.
I'm going to post my my new query for feedback with some thoughts on how incredibly different this one was from the one I worked on for SAGE which took a year and still wasn't knocking my socks off. The one for FORTUNE'S TELLER took one night and I'm truly madly deeply in love with it thanks to the assistance from some rockstar writing buddies. I've also had a bit of a breakthrough after flipping back and forth between real-life YA and fantasy YA the last few weeks that I think will really help me get my WIP in a better place. Hopefully! So I've started rotating my reading list by going with fantasy then real-life then fantasy then real life and so on. I really like the perspective it gives me aside from the obvious write your ass off and tell a good story thing.
And lastly, there's no way I'm going to meet my goal of finishing my WIP by the end of this month but the good news is that I've been revising as I go and I feel really great about the changes and the pace in regards to not having to go back and do extensive revisions when I'm finished. And THAT makes me a very happy girl.
Anyone else have some good things to share? Come on, I want to hear the positive things happening out there!
