Howdy and Happy Fourth to my USA readers!
And a very fond howdy to the rest of my readers as well, I hope EVERYONE is enjoying the day.
Well, that goal I set, of having the first draft of Scourge of the Daiyen done by Sunday (tomorrow)? Accomplished. I finished the draft yesterday. I will say, as I was typing up some of my pages, I realized there was a giant chunk missing from the middle, but I will work on that in the next draft because, for continuity’s sake, rewriting will have to be done.
My next step? To finish typing the blasted thing. After that I’ll print it out and start working on draft 2!
Even though I have a general synopsis of book 3 written out, I am going to hold off on working on that until I get book 2 better off. I probably won’t write an outline even until I’m ready to start.
Still haven’t heard from the publisher – not that I’m surprised. It hasn’t even been a month yet. 🙂
As for other creative projects, I’m grilling some crazy recipes today (well, not too crazy): watermelon with chili powder, cilantro, and lime juice; corn with honey-sriracha butter. I’m also crocheting another blanket (have I mentioned my blanket obsession?) and a hat for the winter (I’m getting started early!).
Wishing all of you well,
