It’s Friday and I have a draft for Ethan and Ana’s novella! My second draft typically goes very faster, mostly just revising, bringing the writing up to par and checking on consistency. I really want to cut and tighten as well, getting it below 40K words if I can. But having the draft done feels pretty good right now. I even have a couple of title ideas too, and once I make a final decision, I’ll tackle the cover.
Then I can get backed to Savaged Dreams, get that revised and sent back to my editor, and then finish writing the second book, Savaged Vows (I currently have it about half-written). I’ve been working hard this year, but so far, there’s nothing for readers to see and I know that’s a disappointment. But I promise, I am writing! I’ve had a few unexpected roadblocks, including some chronic fatigue and aches that slowed me down, but I’m working on resolving that. And after all that, I’ll write the next Wing Slayer Hunter book, Primal Magic.
So that’s my happy for this Friday. What’s yours? And do you have any big plans for the weekend?
