Happy Day


Today is good day, because I have finally finished The Thief Book 2.0. It is now fully typed up and saved on my lovely laptop. And there has been much happiness and rejoicing throughout the land.

I'm actually quite please with myself, as it's two days earlier than expected. It's come in at 70.5K, which is about what I thought it would be.

I know it's in for some rough work, but I just don't think I can look at it right now. The Thief Book and I need some time apart. So I'm going to shoot it over to my fantastic alpha so she can give me some thoughts on it. On my end, it will rest undisturbed.

I guess that frees up some of my November. Let me guess what you're thinking: Will she do it? Is she crazy enough to attempt NaNoWriMo.

Honestly, I'm not sure. I know that most of my schedule hasn't changed, so I'm still too busy for it to be sane; however, I'm feeling like I want to give it a go. Actually, I slipped last night. I tapping away at a new idea that's been festering in my mind for months. What can I say? A good opening line occurred to me and I had a moment of weakness.

As for the rest of the month, I'm playing it by ear.

How about you guys? How's your writing going?


  1. Good for you. I say go for NaNo. It can't hurt anything, and the thief book should sit for a while before you take another look at it. As for me, revisions are coming along quite nicely. I couldn't ask for any more. :)

  2. It sounds like you're ready to give Nano a go. I do enjoy it, I have to say.

  3. Susan -- I'm glad your revisions are going well. :)

    fairy -- I might just.
