Isn’t it funny how when things pile up all you want to do is sleep? I have an upcoming deadline for my next release, grad school prep classes, and work, all adding to my stress so all I could do to combat it yesterday was take my dog for two walks and see two movies. Now the movies I saw were hilarious, and I managed to get a fair amount of reading done on the two walks, but I would hardly call those accomplishments.
I did end up getting a fair amount of editing done, but all I wanted to do was write something new. Again, funny how that works since I desperately need to edit the 9 rough drafts in my writing folder but all I want to do is keep adding to the pile. I started a new manuscript yesterday, and while I know I should put it on the back burner it just keeps calling my name. It kept me up late last night because every time I closed the computer this little voice in my head kept saying “just write a little more. What’s 500 more words? Finish the chapter, come on you know you want to.”
Yep, so that’s where I’m at right now. Very happy with everything going on in my life, but wishing I had the ability to stop time so I could sleep for a week without aging a day and resume life fully recovered. I’m very excited about the new release though.
The name of the book is Lost Boys, and I’m publishing it with Weasel Press based out of Houston, Texas. They have been very good to me so I am always excited to publish a project with them. Other than that I am still figuring out how Goodreads works. I just discovered Lists were a thing the other day when a friend of mine told me Brinwood was on one. It’s really cool just how much this site can do. It really is a little online paradise for bookworms. I wish I was involved with the community sooner because it just has so much to offer.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a good weekend and goes on to have a good week.
I did finish the first draft of Book 1 in my new YA series. No clue what I’m going to do with it yet. Last thing I need to do is toss another shrimp on the barbie.
Thank you for reading.
