I had such a great weekend. My hubby has been so stressed out with school, since he graduates at the end of this month. Seriously. He is not one to cross right now. :) Anyway, he finished a huge project and I was able to actually see him all day yesterday. 3 more weeks and he'll be done!! Then we can move on with life and make some changes. I want to move, so hopefully he can find a good job one of these days!
As for my writing. I'm working on Bound, my YA urban fantasy. It was going great until I got stuck at this one scene. I wanted to jump ahead. And then I didn't know where I wanted to take it. So I took a break for a few days, thought of a new idea for a book, and plotted it out a little bit. I actually outlined this new book a little, which is weird for me. I'm not an outliner. At all. So, after I outlined that, I went back into Bound and wrote a whole new scene. It was great! I'm about half way finished with it, and am so excited to finish it so I can put it away for a month or so and write my new idea.
Isn't it funny how we get so into writing a story, and then a new idea pops into our head and we want to finish our WIP to start writing the new one? It happens to me...All. The. Time. When I was writing Not Your Average Fairy Tale, Bound popped into my head. I told myself I couldn't even start it until Not Your Average Fairy Tale was finished. I finally finished it, and was so excited for my new project, that it took me a while to edit and revise. But I did it, and it turned out way better than I ever hoped. Especially now, with my agent's suggestions. I've changed a few things that have made it so much better.
So how are things going for you? Any new ideas? Or are you just typing away at your WIP's? Anyone revising? Do tell!
And don't forget to enter my contest here! It ends tonight!! :D
