Here we are again, my friends—a little behind again, sigh, but it’s okay, I can get back on the horse. . .
My draft is not back yet from my brutal editor. That is so not a good sign. I was a good girl, and ate that frog, but when I just plain despise having to write something, it shows. I hear mutterings like “it’s a good skeleton,” and “a good 2,000 words should be salvageable,” but nothing very reassuring. So, today or tomorrow I will get the draft back and will begin the painful revision (did you know that is the same term used for reconstructing scars?).
On the up side, once I am done with this bloody poisonous frog, I get to work on some things that will be more fun for me to research and revise (yay!).
Also, I have been floundering around on the writing blog—yes, I am posting every week, but it doesn’t pop for me yet. I have been seeing other participants and other bloggers with themed blog posts and thought it was a very cool idea. I’m going to add a couple of themes to my blog: cool things I run across in my research, and a literary day of the week—a birthday, or publication of a classic, something of that sort. Right now, I can’t manage to do a post for each theme every week, but I would like to eventually get to that point.
So a revised goal: to write one post a week on either the literary day of the week or some cool medieval thing on the Lapidary Prose blog.
Oh, I did accomplish one goal that I had not listed—I’ve chosen a pen name!
Have a look at how everyone else is doing; their check-ins are here.
