Things are hectic here, and that’s an understatement. I was halfway through doing line edits on THE STRANGELING when FedEx arrived with the edited SEX, LIES, AND BONDAGE TAPE for me to check over. I admit it -- there was a moment of sheer panic. I’m trying to promote the October release, while writing the May release, and edit the January release, when the February release arrives. I didn’t let it get a grip on me, oh no. I reminded myself that this is what it’s all about; writers deal with this all the time. In fact this is what I dreamed of life being like, being a full time writer. Like a snowball gathering speed. Well, it is. LOL And of course the most ironic thing of all is that when I finish this little lot, I have no idea what’s next, if anything at all… Ah… the panics, the uncertainties….
Looking at these two different things I'm line editing (one fantasy, one contemporary) I also have two different editing styles, one is electronic and one on paper. It reminded me I want to do a post on that subject and I will. When I was starting out as a writer, I scoured the net for writer experiences that I could learn from, and when I revamped my website I included a page of thoughts for aspiring writers. I’ve had some great feedback about that, and I’ve received email thanking me for bits and pieces I put on the blog too. So I started thinking maybe I should be more organised, and have a regular slot for writing bits and pieces. As from next week, look out for Wednesday is all about writing day.
Meanwhile, why not stop by the Berkley Babes blog where Mia King has a fun post about your first kiss, and wondering about the one that got away. Just click HERE to stop by, and why not add your secret to the comments? ;-)
Back to the job in hand. If I owe you mail it’s coming very soon! Hope you’re all doing well.
