I posted what I thought would be the beginning of the story HERE (an opening I wrote on the spur of the moment for a fun assignment) and sure enough, it is! Well, there were some minor changes, but for the most part, that’s the beginning of my book. Fun, fun, fun!!!
Just because I’m writing, doesn’t mean I’m not editing. Book 6 (BLIND TEMPTATION), is nowhere near finished, but I find I can only edit for so long and then I’m really zoned out. That’s why I started the new project. Apparently the writing side of my brain doesn’t have that zoning-out kind of problem! Whew!
I find it interesting that I’m starting another book now (so close to April). I began writing the last four books in April. Heck, the first book I ever wrote was 5 years ago in April! I’m beginning to think it has something to do with spring! J
Now my only choice each day is whether to write first and then edit or edit first and then write. Yesterday I wrote first. Didn’t get much editing in, but then I don’t do all that much writing/editing on the weekend as it is (especially when I remember I want to write a post for my blog--oops!). But I’m thinking I better edit first. I really want BLIND finished so I can give it to another reader.
And then there are these two other projects that will take precedence over everything--you know, those that Lyrical/Kensington will be publishing (hee hee). Still haven’t heard from my editor, but then the contracts were just delivered on Friday (USPS isn’t exactly speedy, even with priority mail!). I expect it won’t be long before I’m knee deep into those edits.
Busy, busy, huh? But I’m loving it!
I’m going to my first Dayton Dragons baseball game of the season this week! Yay! Yes, it really IS spring! I just hope I don’t freeze out there. Even though the temp’s supposed to be in the sixties, that’s still not exactly toasty warm, you know? I’ll just make sure to take a blanket (or three).
So…What event tells YOU it’s spring?
