The busy never ends...

Yeah, that's right. Which is why I haven't blogged for days! :(

Around this time last week, I decided that I was going to spend the week mostly brainstorming, reading, planning, and getting ready for this week's revision of Recast #3. It was going to be my breather week between projects.

LOL, because that's not what ended up happening. I actually ended up working on FLEs, a second round of edits, and then finished off the week by checking the ARC for CLASH. Which means that Ace and Ely's story is now done & done! How awesome is that? The hard work was certainly worth it, that's for sure.

I'm very excited about CLASH, and also very proud of it. Though I couldn't have done it without my brilliant editor, Suz. She rocks! And I can't wait to work with her again. :)

Also, just having read through that story again--where the hero for Recast #3 is introduced--is actually perfect for getting stuck into the third book's final revision. This morning, I revised the first chapter--10pgs. So that's cool. I'm aiming to get 25pgs/day revised. And if I do, I should have this draft finished by the end of the week. Then all I have to do is write the synopsis and blurb, before subbing it to my editor.

Working through this draft is both exciting and nerve-wracking. Exciting because I really enjoyed writing this story and always look forward to tightening and fixing all the blemishes that I didn't pick up before. And nerve-wracking because it's the third installment in the series and kinda moves into new territory. None of the previous characters are actually in this one, though Ace is mentioned. I guess it's just hard to keep that self-doubt away sometimes. :/

Anyway, I've got all of my notes and research with me. As well as post-it notes to add anything that I need to remember. :) Gotta love being prepared!

We had an awesome weekend, btw. I hope you did too.

A new Ikea has opened up nearby and we popped in yesterday. Seriously, having an Ikea within walking distance is absolutely awesome! We'll definitely be popping in. A lot.

BTW, I haven't read anything since the beginning of last week! :( I've just been too busy working on my own stuff, thinking about a new story idea, and spring cleaning...

Well, wish me luck with the revision! I'll try to be a better blogger this week. ;)

Have a great day!
