Catching Up

It has been a long time since I posted anything. Let's see. November I won Nanowrimo by completing a first draft of a MG historical fantasy. December I rested and enjoyed the holiday with wonderful sense of completion. It was hard not to go back in and immediately start revising, but I resisted (for the most part). January I started revising in earnest. Last week saw the completion of a second draft. Yay! I'm loving the story and can't wait to get back in to revise. I am resisting and waiting to get more great feedback from my various beta readers and to give my subconscious time to work on it as well.

Now, I must submit my MG historical to more agents and finish the latest revision of my YA fantasy. I'm hoping that one will be ready for submission after another round of polishing.

So that's a quick catch up in a nut shell. The life of a writer is never dull! Sometimes painful, heartbreaking, exhausting, frustrating as well as exhilarating and a bunch of other great stuff, but never dull.

And now, my day job (designing products) awaits.
