Jinxed - (update)

As usual, I’ve fallen off on updating my blog. lol I actually expect it from myself. It’s cool. I figure, I’m here now.

I’ve been very busy editing and revising my latest WIP - Jinxed. I hope to get it to the beta readers by mid September. I’m looking at a November publishing date. We’ll see.

It’s the Friday of Labor Day weekend. I’m at the beach. I plan to plant my feet in the sand, raise my face to the sun and allow God’s water to wash upon me giving me new life and energy.

It’s time I start my new life. Have a fulfilling weekend, loves!

Jinxed Update

I’m so close to finishing. I should be done within the next 10 days, maybe even five, if I keep my word count up. I’ve been putting in words counts between 1000 to 2000 words every time I write.

Once I’m done, I will let it rest. And start the editing process of rewriting and revising in about a month or so. I need to read it with fresh eyes, make my editing notes and proceed to make any corrections before I send it off to the professional editors to review. I never understood how some authors, especially those in Urban fiction, get their books out so quickly or get so many books out in one year. They aren’t James Patterson and have co-authors.

This is the time I get excited; when the first draft has completed and I can read it like it’s an actual book. This book will definitely be out later this year.

Looking forward to the next steps.

Books Update

I’ve been getting some significant writing in. I’ve been working to get The Crofton Triangle revised. Plus Jinxed is almost finished.

I’ve set some goals for myself and I’ve been sticking to them. Whoo Hoo!!! Sometimes, I set goals and within a week, I’m breaking the goal because my life gets in the way. But this time, I’m scheduling my life around my writing. I’m not trying to find the time to write. Writing is first and I work around that schedule. Much different than before.

I’ve even started doing some pre-writing - outlining a new book. I had this idea and I couldn’t let it go, so I had to just fit it into the schedule, despite the fact I have a laundry list of other books I slated to be written. Whew! Okay, I’m just going to go with it. No worries.
