It’s done! Wayfarer 9 is complete in the rough draft stage. I sat at my computer yesterday, forgot to eat, worked on it for hours, ignored my phone and most other distractions and got 33,000 words done. After 22 hours being up I sent off the rough draft to my test readers who can now stop nagging me.
When I sent it, I was in the “I’m done with this project and I don’t like it” stage. My daughter always gives me grief over this because generally I’m okay with how things turned out, it’s just I don’t have enough distance to be objective.
I slept from 6:30 this morning until 9:00 which was a little disappointing as I would have liked a little more sleep. I dozed until after 11:00 so I’m getting a slow start to the day.
I’ve gotten a bunch of admin work done. I got my sales spreadsheet updated. At some point, I’m going to shower and eat – maybe before Ken gets home. Today I want to work on updating four through seven of the Wayfarer series so I can take this task off my todo list.
Since I’m working on such little sleep, I’ll probably nap at some point. You never know. I may get some inspiration and work on Defenders 3 as that is the next project I want to tackle. I may just lounge about reading what I have done before I tackle the next stages of the novel.
I’m giving myself today and tomorrow to work on it. Saturday I’m hoping to talk Ken into a movie (or two) and Sunday I have mom coming over for a bit. I don’t know if I can finish Defenders in one day but I’m going to see how it goes and hope Wayfarer 10 stays out of my head until I’m done.
I also want to tackle the edits for 8, production on short stories, and a crochet pattern I’m midway through. The list never ends.
