Snow and Writing Daze
No wonder I'm dazed and confused. Time has been sloshing around in my boots!
Reality, time, belief, disbelief, all suspended, all a big question mark.
But I haven't been fazed in my writing. I got my mojo back for my WIP and have been back in Moab in my heart and mind writing another draft or two of The Land of the Lost and Found.
And guess what? After some copyediting yesterday, I was just crazed enough to send it as a PDF to my agent. (Don't worry Edward dear, it's ready for you!) And after worshopping with a lively group of teens, I lazed around all evening, reading more Grimm's Fairy Tales to the kiddos and then catching up on Shameless late at night with my husband.
Big ol' sigh of relief. Yesterday's success was due to the five hours I spent internet-free. So today I have grazed on the internet, with this blog, Facebook and twitter guilt-free, I am reading an ARC of Judy's new book coming out in March, Strings Attached that she gave me yesterday, (I am in-love with it so far, and will report back!) and my lovely mother is coming for dinner!
Tomorrow I will start work on a complete revision of another WIP, while I wait for my agent to read the fruits of my labor. (Which will no doubt need MORE editing)
