Do you ever have those moments when you are literally bursting with creativity but you’re already locked into a project and probably shouldn’t jump ship to work on whatever you want to? Yeah, me too. It’s a hard life. 😉
“The Twin Arrows” is progressing very well. I have been gifted with the world’s sweetest, most helpfully critical beta-reading team ever. We have spent over a week working out story kinks, and they are so gracious to tell me when something doesn’t make sense or finally does after I’ve revised a lot. 😉 (I’ve also discovered who the Sir Larkin fangirls are, which is pretty fun…) I’ve been writing acknowledgments and bios on the side. Still, there are days when there isn’t a ton for me to do except add in commas and take them out.
Well, there is something, but I don’t particularly like it. 😉 #confessions It’s blurb writing time! (Times two, actually.) Since I’m updating my first book The Treasure Hunt, I’ve decided that the excerpt on the back should probably be replaced with a synopsis. And since I’ve been in talks with my cover designer (we have the front cover finalized!!! ❤ ), it’s time to get the blurb ready for “The Twin Arrows” as well.
Did I mention it is hard? (Like worse than getting good author pictures? Actually, I take that back.) After several days’ worth of trying to write it, avoiding it, and maybe just a little despairing, I finally looked at the back of some books today and got a few ideas. Prayers appreciated!
So working with beta-readers and blurb writing are great, but my creative head does go a little crazy without something to work on. I’ve brainstormed two stories with my younger sister last week, and that’s not even the half of it.
*drops voice to a whisper* You know my story “Kiera” that’s waiting patiently for its rewrite starting six weeks from now? I rewrote the last scene in a notebook. Also brainstormed two companion short stories. (Hint: One is about Brennan. ❤ ) Can’t stop thinking about the sequel. And came up with maybe four more scenes to add in when it’s officially rewrite time. I know, I’m hopeless. I love this story so much, y’all! Fortunately I’m able to keep myself from getting too distracted with new ideas by writing it all down in my planner, but I am just itching to get my hands on that story! My Pinterest board won’t stop growing either. 😀
Oh, and how could I forget! I’m planning another blog party with the Rebekah Morris! How cool is that??!! Stay tuned. 😉
This past week has been full of a lot of project juggling, but it’s a ton of fun and there have been some nice times of fellowship with family and friends. 😉 Like the game of Taboo Junior we just played. That was fun!
