Where I’m At

Novella: Waiting on help from my brothers on getting a cover ready. Things have been pretty busy around here lately, so artwork has been thus pushed aside.

Novel: Waiting ever so patiently for Natalie to go through my work and cover it with red ink (or red-colored text, as it were). She’s on a family vacation atm, so it’s taking longer than it normally would, but I can live with that.

Collaboration novel: That’s right, E. M. and I are getting our collaboration work adapted to a more publishable context and format now! I’d say within six months or so we’ll be working on our query letter and sending it off to agents. It’s super-exciting to think about how far this project has come since the fall, how fast things have gotten accomplished, and how nice it is that in all the time we’ve been working together we’re still not sick of each other! On the contrary, we keep saying how much we love working together and how we want to do more of it!

Camp NaNo: So, obviously, I’ve already finished my June novel, but E. M. and I are both writing in August. I’ve got my novel all worked out in my brain, but this time I’ve not written a word. (Okay, so I’ve written about a hundred words, but that doesn’t count. It’s a poem I’ve adapted for the novel. Doesn’t count at all.) E. M. and I have decided to race to 50k words, see who’s more on the ball. What does the winner get? I have absolutely no idea, so probably nothing, but the bragging rights will be epic, if nothing else.

I hope everyone’s enjoying their lovely summers and I hope you’re all having a great time with whatever projects are going on in your lives. Speaking of, what projects ARE you working on? I’d love it if you could leave a comment about what you’re up to this summer, whether it’s a writing project, a home improvement project, or a mission to save the world from the apocalypse. Whatever it is, I’m dying to know how it’s going!
