Small update on new WIP

I remember now why I become so hermit-like while I’m writing.

I started working on a new book the other night and have been alternating between that, one I started on a few months ago (and haven’t done much with), and messing around on here in between.

I’m EXTREMELY satisfied with the progress of the newest, although I have some concerns about it. Mostly because it’s screaming the word ADULT at me, and I have a very difficult time writing adult-type things. I’ve got around 14k words on it already and I’m trying to just . . . take it one step at a time.

The older-new-one makes me want to break my laptop. I’ve realized very recently – partially due to this particular WIP, and partially due to fixing some technical things in my first series – that I seriously suck at writing contemporary stories. Well, maybe it’s not so much that I suck, but just that I don’t really enjoy it as much.

I haven’t started on that ‘experiment’ I mentioned the other day, mostly because the newest WIP has been forcing me to tackle the things that I’d planned on tackling with it anyhow. Well . . . to be totally honest, there hasn’t been much tackling of anything quite yet (apart from a few things), but it’s gonna happen – that’s for sure.

My family has been on my case about going fishing while it’s ‘nice out’, but I feel like I don’t have the time to piddle around. I should probably go back there, at least for a little while. (We have a lake [large pond, but we call it a lake] on our property – I have a picture of it somewhere recently on my Instagram).

I’ve been trying to work out some sort of schedule. Work (Write), Read, Work (Write), Blog . . . it’s just not quite working out the way I wanted it to. I guess I’m just going to have to get accustomed to doing more than one thing at a time in life. Ah, it’s an experience.

All I can do is grow. I think it’s helping.

Hope everyone has a glorious Friday, followed by a fantastic weekend.

You know where I’ll be. In my shed. Writing.

Editing, Good Feelings, Sunshine

I’m trying to keep up with the trend of posting an entry every three days or so, just because I feel it would be best to not let myself get far behind on it.  If I get far behind, I’m concerned that this entire thing will slip off into oblivion.  I’m already far enough behind on the reading that I can’t allow myself to slip in all areas with the whole blogging…thing.

I wasn’t expecting to have the revised copy of my book back this early.  Yes, I know this was the time frame that I wrote on here awhile back, but that was before a million things happened in life.  So that was a pleasant surprise.

In other words…I have the revised copy from my friend, meaning that I’m going through it right now and doing a last editing before *gasp* sending it off to an editor.  Yes.  I found one.  I never like posting things that aren’t set in stone, as I said in the last entry, but I’m feeling confident enough with the situation and whatnot that I will go ahead and say it.  Full of good feelings and sunshine all around at the moment.

Anyway, I’m going to be doing that for a little while.  Then, while I’m having that second break in time that I mentioned a few entries ago, I will finally catch up on here.  Which will be nice, because I will have my NORMAL COMPUTER CHAIR by that point.  So yaaaay.

I better go ahead and go out into MY SHED (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and get to work.

Hope that everyone out there is full of good feelings and sunshine.  If not, go find some.  You deserve it.
