Soâ€¦ good to know itâ€™s there. At Berkley. Waiting to be read by the editor. I wished I had included a SASP so Iâ€™d know for sure that she had it, but tis okay. Itâ€™s enough to know that it was delivered. I guess.
I was actually surprised when I logged on to USPS.com this morning. I really expected it to be delivered some time today since I mailed it Friday night. Priority Mail with delivery confirmation. It rocks. At least the USPS is dependable (unlike OTHER delivery servicesâ€¦ahemâ€¦)
Got my new book yesterday. Iâ€™m so excited! Itâ€™s Patricia A. McKillipâ€™s new release, Od Magic. I read the first give pages, but I didnâ€™t want to get sucked in yet because I have two borrowed books I want to read first. But the first sentenceâ€¦Wow. It captured me right away. I was happy to see sheâ€™ll have another release later this year, so Iâ€™m looking forward to that, too.
So many books, so little timeâ€¦
Wrote two more issues of Ransom & Fortune and got them off yesterday. That puts me at completing 108. I need to write two issues of the romance today and get them in. Iâ€™m about to start 123. Iâ€™m still striving to finish this thing. Iâ€™d like to this month, but it may be August before itâ€™s completely done. Looking forward to having that one out of the way.
I did a fun thing yesterday. My writing friend who does Mending Resolute, came up with a thing where one of her characters (a reporter) interviews one of mine. So I chose Dane from Ransom & Fortune and it was really fun to get deep inside his head. I actually got to know him a little better and some of his answers surprised me and some cracked me up. A lot of fun.
I got a good bit of progress done on the new WIP, the jousting novel. I managed to break the 20,000 word mark, so Iâ€™m inching closer to the half-way point. By my calculations, Iâ€™ll need to write about 2000 words a day until the end of the month to get to the 50,000 mark. Not sure if I can make it, but Iâ€™m going to try.
Itâ€™s quiet around the office again today. Despite people being back from vacation, things are quiet in my department. Iâ€™m glad. It will give me a chance to get some writing done and make some notes.
So, off I go! 🙂
