Getting closer. I had a pretty good 1500 word day yesterday (and it only took me a little over an hour to get there). I have been thinking, in my spare time, how I am going to flesh out my characters in my spare time (I have quite a bit of thinking time I have found out, just very little time to implement my thoughts) It is looking like a weekend finish is in order. I am supposed to work on my house this weekend, and I will, but when I am done or waiting for stuff to dry or I just run out of material (It is always a possibility, although I don't know how likely) I am planning on working on finishing my book.
Next week I start my most dreaded project. rewriting and edits. I have two books I need to edit before I start editing my current piece and I want to have them all out by mid-summer. I don't know if I can do it (and you will notice how ambiguous mid-summer sounds. Is it the middle of the school's summer vacation or is it the mid-point of summer as determined by the summer solstice? I haven't decided either.)
After the edits I am in the search for an agent. At least for the YA book. I don't think there are many agents that look at novellas so I might have to sub that one on my own.
I should be finished reading Twilight. I know a lot of you are going 'what the hell is he reading that for?' My wife recommended it to me. My sister recommended it to me. As I said. I should be finished reading it but I have a perfectly logical excuse for not having it finished yet (It really is a quick read). I haven't been reading it. I haven't been sucked in (no pun intended) by the characters, although I will give that the story is starting to pick up, now that I have read over half of it. Maybe I will put that on my 'to-do' list as well this weekend. After all, I have Money Shot by Christa Faust to read. Nothing like porn stars that are shot and left for dead only to come back for revenge. That one I am looking forward to reading.
