The heat is killing me! Okay, not literally, but we're set to break a record this weekend - 97 in June. Oh, with humidity, that's about 212!!! Naturally curly haired people should really avoid the south at this time of year. Not pretty, not pretty at all.
Anyhow, with mega-heat-n-humidity happening on a daily basis, I'm spending more time inside than out. I mean, you go outside, can't breathe, and immediately need a shower is great incentive to stay inside with the air conditioning and a margarita. I'm just saying . . .
So, I've been doing more writing lately than normal. I think I'd been in a funk for a while and slowly motivating myself out of that funk. Very slowly. I've been immersing myself in the editing phase of a project - the one where Chapter Eight became Chapter One. I've incorporated a few of the old chapters into the new project with some tweaks here, there, and everywhere, added a chapter or two, and this weekend ended up at Chapter Eight again. Woo-hoo. Now I'm just copying/pasting chapters from the second draft into the third draft and editing as I go, word by word and chapter by chapter.
I've also jotted down notes for a novella I want to do at some point. As you know, when the ideas hit me - SLAP - I stop what I'm doing and jot down notes, etc., so I have a good place to start when I have the free time to totally devote to a project.
I'm also still working on the urban fantasy.
I need to get back to the project where I'm eliminating words. That'll happen in the very near future, which means I'll also get back to working on my query. I have the pitch down pat, so all I need is a descriptive paragraph that sums up the book and showcases my voice! Uh, yeah, I'll need a few more margaritas for that. Ha.
