So, for some reason, I’ve gone back to a MWF schedule. Not sure how that happened, but it works I guess.
Woven is fully line-edited and those edits are in the manuscript. This week I’ve got to get on my mom’s computer and work on the formatting in Word. I don’t write with Word on my computer. I use a different program that lets me export to Word, but formatting gets eaten quite often when exporting. So I’ll have to work on that and create files that are not allowed to be opened on my computer for the querying process. I’m working on the synopsis and query at the moment, as well.
Curse of Life is nearing completion. It’s so close I can taste it. I’m hoping to have it done this week. I left off at the end of last week with my MC preparing to give her rally the troops speech. I’m aiming for President Mitchell in Independence Day but it might end up, in first draft, more Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman. That’s what revisions are for, right?
All right, I have to go ahead and add in the full update. I was going to wait for next week, but I couldn’t. I FINISHED CURSE OF LIFE!!!!!!
Such a relief to finally have this book drafted after several months of inconsistent writing. Now starts the laborious process of typing up the manuscript. I wrote this one longhand, and it’s a long one. This book was also an interesting experience for me. Which I’ll blog more about on Friday. Or next Monday. I have to sort my brain a bit.
I worked some on the background for another book set in the same universe as Woven, but occurring about 15 years after the end of Heirs of the Seven Realms ends. It is currently tiled Raven.
How are your WiPs going?
