Monday WIP update
Why do I always feel like such a bum on Monday? I don't seem to want to do anything. I have to drag myself out of bed, make my kids breakfast and get them and myself ready for the day. Sometimes we are ready before 2:00. Just kidding. I make it a point to be all ready by at least noon.
Anyway, on to my writing. I finished edits for my agent last week and sent my manuscript off again. I don't know why, but I get nervous every time I send it back. Just a habit from querying I guess. I'm expecting to see a rejection, but I know it won't get one until he starts shopping it to editors. I'm not used to NOT querying yet.
I actually have two WIP's right now. One is the sequel to the book my agent is working on, and the other is a brand new shiny series I want to write. I have about 11000 words, and I'm in love with it. I love the feeling of discovering new characters and fleshing them out. I love finding out what struggles they are going to have to overcome, and how they'll deal with them. I love creating magic in a normal world, and making it believable. It's so much fun for me. I'm all for magic and powers and all that. It's why I write fantasy I guess!
I'm not going to write the sequel to my other book too fast. If it doesn't sell, I don't want to write a whole book and not be able to use it either. So, I'm working on it a little bit at a time, and am focusing on my new WIP a little bit more.
What are you guys working on? Revising? Writing? Editing? I love knowing people are going through the same thing as me. :)
