Happy Holidays! I hope the
On the home stretch!
So, despite the fact that I’ve been moping around this week (which has been accompanied by copious brownie and Dorito consumption, unfortunately), I’ve been writing like a fiend, and hit the 70K mark on my WIP. You know, the one I started back in January, then had to stop for a month or two so I could fix the previous WIP?
Anyway, this means not only that the end is in sight, but that I may actually beat my Oct. 15 deadline… perhaps by as much as two months!
And, because I’m such a daredevil, I’m now writing two books at once! I started Murder Most Maine when I was in Port Aransas on ‘vacation’ (I’m compulsive, what can I say), and have been working on it in the evenings once everyone else has gone to bed. I’ve always been afraid to try two at once — I don’t know what I thought would happen — but it’s actually rather refreshing to switch gears. Besides, I’m always reading six or seven books (a conservative estimate) at once, and rarely get them confused. Why would writing be any different?
So I’m at 70K on the second wolf book (I’m calling it Wolf Under Cover — what do you think?) and closing in on 5K on Murder Most Maine, which I started last week. It’s so nice getting some momentum going again!
Am headed to Dallas for a marathon day of meeting with interesting people (e.g. my fab agent Jessica, one of my editors, who I can’t WAIT to meet in person, and some of the good folks at Ballantine — not to mention Renee Jones of CCTV Books in Review) tomorrow. And since I’m due to be up in six and a half hours, I’m off to bed now. I promise to respond to comments when I get back… and I did post to Cozy Chicks today. Thankfully. 🙂
Cheers, and more soon!
