Am dying to share some of the current WIP, but am playing it smart. This baby needs to go through my critique partner and agent before I start sharing with you. Speaking of my CP, Rachel Vincent is holding several ARC giveaways on her upcoming YA novel, MY SOUL TO STEAL. You might want to check daily on her blog and get in on this.
Right now, I’m working hard to finish up the latest book–as you all know. It’s not like I haven’t been sharing, right? I had written myself into a corner and funny enough, all it took was switching a couple of scenes. Now, I make that sound easy and it really isn’t. Every emotional reaction in a scene is fed off things learned in earlier scenes. Switching them means you have to change the way the character takes in information, how she reacts to it.
Luckily, I do like a challenge.
And I think I’m enjoying the world-building more than should be legal. Even when I’m tripped up a bit on science and have to track down some obscure and random fact, I’m not letting it worry me too much.
And speaking of worry. I know a lot of people who read this blog, read or write in the same genres. Urban Fantasy, paranormal romance, dystopian fiction, post-apocalyptic fiction, etc. On the Net, recent chatter has been that publishers are getting burned on these… oh, you gotta love the chatter. But seriously, if any of you are panicking over these tidbits of information, try not to let it mess with you too much. If you are truly writing a good book, it will stand. This is my current mantra because yes, I do worry about these things, too. 😉
