Had the worst cold this week! At first, it messed with my head. Then, when my body was still fighting, the brain started working.
I got ideas for two new books this week. TWO!
One of them is pretty vague with big potential. One came in with a bang and potential. I started taking notes and researching and that flood of excitement in my veins made the cold take a back seat. Still ill, but I’m not caring quite so much. LOL!
I’ve also been in intense critique sessions with Rachel. It’s no secret, especially to those on Twitter, that Rachel and I LOVE these sessions. We really dig into the meat of the story, the motivation of the characters. We both benefit no matter whose manuscript we’re working on because it stirs up creative fire every single time.
This time, we’re critiquing ALPHA. (And NO, I will not share any of it, not even hints. Okay, one hint… it’s INTENSE and EXCITING. That’s all you’re getting. Along with germy hugs, kay?)
Since these fierce sessions will go on a few more days and I’m planning to dive into the new idea to take my mind off the books out on submission…and this tenacious cold!… I’m going to leave this post up a few days. And do a RANDOM GIVEAWAY!!!
In the comments, tell me your favorite part of the critiquing process or revision process–or just say hi and show me some love so I can kick out the cold. One random winner will get to win this! Everyone occasionally feels like a zombie when on deadline, right? (Makes a fun Christmas gift if you’re not into zombies. )
If you really don’t want the zombie one, I’ll let the winner pick from these. Deadline to comment is by midnight my time (Central standard) Wednesday. I’ll announce the winner Friday. Good luck!
