Yes, it's a frowny Monday for me. I had outlined in my goals last Monday that I would finish revising Blood Diamond this week. I didn't finish. So, I'm back to that with hopes of finishing by Wednesday. I'm off from the part time job today and don't go in until 2 tomorrow so cross your fingers for me and send me good vibes. I did, however, do all the blogging I wanted to so that's a big YAY!
So, blogging all around this week again. Starting to see a pattern here? Yeah, I'm really getting into it and enjoying it. Writing-wise, I'll finish revisions for Blood Diamond and send it off to my critique partners, write the first draft of the synopsis, and if the revisions go as planned, I'll even finish chapter 13 of Out of the Shadows.
Out of the Shadows is my baby. The hero and heroine lived inside my head for a long time and their insistence, combined with the workshop I took with M.R. Sellars, convinced me to take writing seriously and pursue it as a career. It's a full-length urban fantasy that is the first of a 5 book series. I've been working on it off and on for two years and while I should have finished before now, I know that my writing has come a long way since I started it so it will be a stronger book for the delay. Revisions will probably be horrendous, but I've got time. I plan to have it finished and revised BEFORE RWA National convention in July. I've got my work cut out for me.
Okay, so that's it for me today. Gotta take puppy to the groomer and then get to work. We're closing in on the end of the first quarter of the year. How are your goals coming along?
