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
Well, first things first: [TT] has an official working title now! So from here on out I’ll be referring to it as [SOPAB]. And no, I’m not going to explain what it stands for 😉 I whittled my list of 16 possible titles down to six, after which I asked some people to choose which ones would entice them in a bookstore, and gave them a quick rundown of the major themes of the story. There was no clear favourite, but their feedback helped me choose the one I’ve gone with.
Just a quick update. I’m still querying literary agents for [TEE], and after sending in [OSAA] during Angry Robot’s open door period, I decided to start querying agents for that novel as well. 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 finished my first draft of [TT] on the 2nd of January! So I’d say, at least when it comes to writing, 2018 had a good start. I’ve shelved it for now, to come back to it with fresh eyes some time in the future, so I can start on draft 1.5. Continue reading
It’s been a while since I’ve written about the querying progress for [TEE]. Mainly because there hasn’t really been any. I’ve been querying agents here and there since the last update, but no luck just yet. I’ve mostly been occupied with writing my new WIP [TT] and editing [OSAA] to get it ready to submit to Angry Robot’s open door period. Planning to get back to editing [BOR], and maybe give [TEE] another look. Could be fresh eyes would pick out some things I didn’t see before, even though I’m up to draft number 5 right now.
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.
