Wow. Has it really been a week since my last post? O_o
When I get stuck into a first draft, I pretty much spend every single available minute I have adding new words. Actually, since I finished the book I was reading on Friday night, I haven't picked up another one. I can't get the story I'm writing outta my head.
Even when I'm not actually writing, I'm thinking about it and can't concentrate on reading anything else. Oh, and since I received the A PATCH OF DARKNESS galley, it looks like that'll be the next thing I read. :)
I'm so excited about APoD coming out in print next year. I'll keep you posted on the progress and dates, etc.
So, what I've decided to do is add as many words as I can to Sierra Fox #3 for the rest of this week. I'm hoping to reach the halfway point. Then next week, I'll alternate between new words for Book #3 and reading the galley for Book #1. Phew. I'm getting tired just thinking about it. LOL.
It'll keep me busy, but if I can get stuck into both projects for the rest of the month... I might just get them done in time for my daughter's school holidays. Yeah, she'll be on holidays during the first two weeks of July.
Oh, and in case you're interested, I've been posting my word count progress over @LJ.
As of this morning, I'm sitting on 38,418 words.
I don't know how the weather is where you live, but here in Sydney we've been having a shocking June. It's all rain and small glimpses of the sun--if we're lucky--before the rain decides to pour down again. I absolutely hate it! I miss the sun. I need the sun. This constant overcast/rainy weather is so depressing.
Anyway. Have a great day!
