I should be writing on my WiP at the moment, but instead I am writing a blog post and alternately painting my nails. I have a wedding to get ready to go to this afternoon and of course put off things I could have done yesterday until this morning. I am such a procrastinator! GRRRRRRR.
Anyways, I mentioned in my last post that I was laying low from social media (including blogging) for two reasons-writing and reading. Well and work too, so three reasons I guess. But I will admit that my head has been buried in a book (or my Nook) every day for hours since I had been trying to catch up with my GoodReads challenge. This includes while eating breakfast, during breaks between court appearances, lunch, while making dinner and while eating dinner. Yes, I have been a reading fool lately. I have also been branching out into different genres which has been surprisingly fun. Nothing like a good book to escape to, no matter the genre! As of today I am right on track, thank goodness, and close to 50% done. This habit however has not been kind on my wallet. Buying ebooks is way too easy sometimes! Ack!
When I haven't been either working or reading, I have been writing. On that front, I've been moderately successful. I still don't know if I will be done with the draft by Sunday, but this is because I actually changed around some scenes in the last third I was working on. (I know I shouldn't revise as I go, but I had to do it-it was driving me nuts as I wrote, knowing things weren't where they belonged!) I've also introduced a couple characters in the novel that will show up in another WiP (which I had already written most of as a novella last year but then hit a block) So with a little tweaking and if I can just stay on a schedule, I already have a book two for this series two-thirds of the way done-talk about awesome! (The second WiP won't follow the same main characters, though they will definitely be in the book as secondary characters of sorts. As I said in my last post, I really love this world I've created and can see a lot of possibilities here. I will have a better idea of how all this is going to work once I get this first one off to Beta readers and have time to sit back and plan. Which means I should go write...right now. But before I do I will leave you with one of the newest songs on my mp3 player's rotation, cause you know me, I am all about the music! Have a great weekend!
