I’m revising one novel, researching queries for another, adding wordcount to another, and prepping for Camp NaNoWriMo. And my dear friend Tricia reminded me that I only had until the end of June to claim my free printed copies of last year’s winning NaNoWriMo, so that story’s revision schedule (which I was doing all lackadasical-like) is now shifting into warp speed. No biggie, right? Make it so.
Is it weird that I love this stuff? I’ve decided that this kind of variety is necessary or this writing thing becomes unbearable. The minute it starts feeling like drudgery, I know I’ll become one of those insufferable creative types who lament their state while swilling gin and tonics for breakfast.
[Note: Cocktails during Writing Happy Hour are always perfectly acceptable.]
So in the interest of prepping to tell stories over a virtual campfire, an outline and character sketches are already in progress and I’ve created the first playlist for my new stuff. I’m planning a few key lovey-dovey moments, some quite different from what I’ve done before, so I needed a “let’s-make-out” soundtrack.
Off to the writing cave!
