I didn’t realize until last night that I had only written one post for last week. Wow. I try to blog at least twice a week, but time slipped away and hid under the bed. Ce la vie. Sometimes Life. There was no sickness for an excuse this time though. Mainly, it was all just bad time management. I got so involved in #GUTGAA and all the amazing writers there that I forgot a lot of other things. Like editing and critiques and cooking supper and sleeping and… Yeah. Anyways, I didn’t make it to the agent round, but I got a lot of great feedback that I’m going to incorporate into my query and first 150. There are other contests coming up and I’m going to be ready for them=)
My mood has slipped lately too. I’ve been extremely forgetful and generally down in the dumps. I didn’t know what was going on, but I finally figured it out: I haven’t been reading lately. Who knew that reading could lift my mood so much? Anyways, I’ve got a lot of great books in my TBR pile and something special I’m cooking up for the Thirsty Thursday blog that requires rereading a great book. I’ve had one of my IRL friends drop off a bunch of books for me and my sister and I continue to exchange books we think each other will like. Soon enough, I’ll have another Recent Reads post=)
I’ve been trying to figure out what rewrites need to go into The Changeling. I was a little upset to realize I’d made a mistake thinking I’d have it ready to query by October. It’s soooo not ready. No where near, and there are so many rewrites. I’m practically going to have to rewrite the entire thing.
*cue panic attack*
This is what I get for trying to pants the thing. There are some great parts in it that are a must keep and all the characters are absolutely essential but not necessarily as they are, now I just have to re-plot, outline, and rewrite. I was hoping to have the plan and outline done by Thursday, but I think this may take a bit more thought. I may do the rewrites for NaNoWriMo this year, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to participate officially. We’ll see.
Anyways, enough blathering. For now, I’m going to go watch a clock until midnight when I can go buy AVENGERS. Who else is getting it?
