Today I finished another round of revisions on PULL. I did all of Agent Emma’s edits last Friday–yes, in one day (and when I told her I was done, she used the phrase “some kind of record” and there were lots of exclamation point/question mark combinations at the ends of her sentences)–and then I took another pass through the whole thing, starting Friday and ending today. And then I sent it to two trusted writer friends who can tell me what else needs work.
I iz TIRED, y’all.
However, there is NO REST for the weary, because I still need to work on A) SHADOWS and B) UNTITLED SHORT STORY OF AWESOMENESS for the anthology we have coming out in December.
I’ve got what I think is a good start to the short story, but…*looks over shoulder* come here. No, closer. I have to tell you a secret.
SHORT STORIES ARE HARD.
I’ve written two full ones so far that aren’t going to work. The first one was too meh and the second one was too blah. So I’ve started a third, and I think it might work, but it’s really too soon to tell.
Also, I’m DYING to re-read ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS. I cannot stop thinking about it.
That was kind of a random tidbit, but that’s just where we are right now. “Random” is my modus operandi until I have this baby.
At which point we will go from “random” to “I’m pretty sure she needs to be locked up.”
See you all soon.
