I’ve been on a roll. In the last, roughly, two months I’ve completed and released Shattered & Scarred, I’ve completed Broken & Burned (SHMC Book II), put it through a first and second round of edits, put it through some extensive rewrites and sent it through a third round of edits (I think it’s about done…) and just yesterday I finished the first draft of Cracked & Crushed and sent it out for review.
I’m on a roll, but looking back at the swath of destruction I’ve wrought via MS Word on my trusty Surface tablet, I’m pretty sure I deserve to be on an Honor Roll somewhere too.
Now I don’t want people freaking out about the fact I complete stuff in such a short amount of time. I promise you, the nature of my schedule and things… I have the luxury of devoting 9 to 12 hours a day to writing. That’s a lot of time, and sometimes that’s not just five days a week, that’s seven.
For the most part I jot notes and write long hand during the day and go ape shit at night with the typing. My fiancé is a patient man and right now, we’re working opposite schedules which sucks, but on the flip side it gives me even more time to write when I get up before dawn to get him off to work then have four or five hours to kill before I go off to work.
Readers reap the benefits, my editor gets stuff to do so she isn’t dying of boredom while she’s laid up and me… I just get exhausted but it’s worth it! It’s so worth it because I’m really in love with my own characters and it is an amazing amount of fun writing them.
It’s not so much fun screwing with them, but life is a lot like:
So I understand it has to happen.
Anyways. I’m done rambling for now and I promise I’m completely approachable so if anybody is actually reading this and has questions about the series or whatever, feel free to message me. I get back to folks pretty quickly.
