So, in the last few days, I’ve written 5k on one of my novellas, critiqued most of a 100k novel for my critique partner, Rachel Vincent, and hosted a last minute NY’s Eve thing at my house with my sisters and their families as guests. We programmed an 80s music station into Pandora and sang so loudly, I’m sure my neighbors are convinced I’m crazy. (I know they were worried before…) We made way too much food and a huge mess, but it was fun.
And before anyone asks how I could critique that much work that fast, I’m not doing a line by line. She had a pretty tight deadline, so I’m reading for major things that jump out at me and giving her my impressions and predictions and just generally telling her how much I LOVE it. Cuz I do. It’s seriously cool. I know a lot of readers here are Vincent fans, so I’ll share this. You’re in for a treat with her new adult UF series. 🙂
Remember, that I extended the Readers on Deadline challenge at the Deadline Dames. You still have a week from Sunday to write to the gorgeous image and possibly win two exciting young adult books! These are Dame January releases and from the reviews coming in, already excited readers out there. I couldn’t be more happy for my fellow Dames!
I may be a little scarce on the blog. Or I might not be. LOL! It will depend on how fast I churn out my WIP. My agent has said the sooner the better on my new young adult manuscript, so I’m hoping to kick up my time line.
I’m wrapping up the final showdown and love stuff on draft one but I’ll have some wicked rewrite setting stuff to research and thread in. You now, the fun Stuff! 😉
