I've been waiting for some advice and guidance on the latest version of the MG Fantasy, which arrived yesterday. The suggestions, from pros in the business, whose opinions I trust totally, were all spot on- a change of POV, more action, and more background, with less *modern* (I tried to weed the anachronisms out, but a few snuck into the pre-industrial setting anyway). All this means that I'm going back to work. Though the skeleton of the story and action are in place, this is still a major rewrite. I have two festivals yet to attend, but I am mostly free until July, when we're going on a Big Family Trip With A Much Anticipated Wedding On The Beach. I'd very much like this draft (the 3rd, a record for me) to be finished before July, which means: I'm going back to work.
My evenings will still be free (I do try to make writing the Day Job), and I'm not abandoning American Idol (as if that was even possible), and I'll still be knitting and yakking, and taking pictures, and trying new crafts, but there may be days here and there without blog posts. And in order to make my days as productive as possible, I might even... gasp... turn the internet off while I work... (which sounds awfully drastic- I'll reserve that option as a last resort- a sort of threat to myself to Be Productive Or Else). I hope you hang in there with me- it's an adventure, fer shure.
Okay enough yammering, it's time to buckle down. I'll catch all y'all on the flip.
