Well, it’s been a while since the last update–August–but not that long, luckily. There have been changes in my responsibilities at work I’m adjusting to, there’s been a pup in the house since the end of July that needs raising/training, and I’m planning on purchasing a harp in December and teaching myself how to play. My mind has been fuller than ever before. Continue reading
I’ve been editing multiple projects at the same time – which probably isn’t the best thing? – but I seem to have some issues just focusing on just one. Perhaps it’s because I got a new job in January and am still learning new things every day. Perhaps it’s because I haven’t queried in a while and there’s no deadline/rush.
It’s time for a tally, me thinks. I’ve been quietly and infrequently querying agents for both [TEE] and [OSAA], and I thought it would be a good thing to look back on what kind of responses – when I got any – I got back for both projects.
I’ve sporadically been editing draft 1.5 of [BOR], because I’ve been busy writing, and editing, [SOPAB]. I’ve only done about 40 pages since my last editing update, and all of that was just line editing. I don’t think I’ll be sending it to any beta readers soon.
I’ve spent most of my time not editing, actually. It’s only been a few weeks since I went back to editing draft 1.5 of [BOR]. My head hasn’t been in the game for a while now, but I’m getting back into it. I’m hoping for no more distractions. Continue reading
I finished editing [OSAA] a few days before November hit in 2017. I had been working on draft 2.5, incorporating my beta readers’ feedback and my own comments. Draft 3 was the draft I meant to send in during Angry Robot’s Open Door period. Then November came, I had finished my last edit and I sent it in.
I’ve been thinking of replacing my laptop (which still works perfectly BTW), for a lighter one. I’ve been looking through lists of laptops which are great for writers and taking notes.
The perfect situation for me would be to have a more portable laptop I could use for writing and editing (at home or on the road) and frequent watching of tv shows/series, and a desktop computer for writing/gaming/everything else.
