It’s been a good–if somewhat painful–weekend Okay so I have Savaged Vows fully drafted at just over 100k words, although I’m frantically trying to fix one scene, and I need this book to go to the editor tomorrow (Tuesday). Ironically, the scene I’m struggling with is a wedding scene. And I’m supposed to be a romance writer…LOL!
And OMG I love this book. I’m not going to lie, it needs a lot of revisions and I’m terrified to send it to my editor, but I am passionate about Liza, Justice and their story. Writing the last quarter of the book was one of the hardest things I’ve done–some might consider it a risky storyline. I wrote it anyway
Right now I’m taking a full minute to celebrate getting this far, even though I know there will be huge revisions on this book. Sometimes we need to stop and look at what we actually achieved. Despite a lot of setbacks, including a series of very serious family health crises in a month’s time, then Wizard and I both getting colds, in the last two weeks I developed some shoulder/arm pain, all while juggling multiple other projects and deadlines–I did it! A 100,000 plus work manuscript for Savaged Vows!
My shoulder and arm thing will be okay. I’m doing stretches to avoid any kind of frozen shoulder scenario, but it really is from pure overuse. A few days rest, with ice, heat and stretches and it’ll be fine.
So that’s my weekend news. How was your weekend?
