Yesterday I managed to check off two big things on my to do list. I got the taxes done for my mom and sister as well as the paperwork for my uncle. Last night I finished writing the rough draft of Wayfarer 7.
This morning I promptly rewrote the ending as it felt bad and abrupt last night. I woke up knowing a better way to end it. One of my test readers said it felt too final and the tweak I had in mind I hope makes it feel less final.
However, this means I now have four manuscripts in the editing phase. I will try to get them through this phase and into production. It will take time. I swear I’m going to write on the Defenders series next.
Before I turned to the Defenders, I want to get some crocheting done. I think today will be a day of going through the LARGE stack of coupons I have to clip and then crocheting to see how many gifts I can make. In all honestly I’m working on the throw I need to make and hoping I can finish it today.
As is normal for me after finishing a project, I feel rung out and used up. The ending for seven was tough, One of the constants in the book goes away. Now I’ll have to replace it in the next book but I’m not thinking about eight until I get some editing done.
I think I’ll work on crocheting for the next two weeks with the editing thrown in. Hopefully I’ll be able to do a cover reveal for Wayfarer Aegis shortly. I am excited for the release of all these books. I love them all and can’t wait to get them edited and into production.
If I do the coupons, I can lay out my crocheting on the card table and figure out which projects I can get off my to do list. If Ken doesn’t want to watch Babylon 5 with me, then I’ll probably listen to the new JD Robb book. Either way, my crochet hook will be going and my brain will hopefully get a rest from creating – well creating a story anyways…
It’s dang cold out, it seems like the perfect day to stay inside and get things done, fun things like harassing my husband and crocheting. All while I wait nervously for my test readers to come back with whether they like seven or not.
