WIP Day - *Insert spiffy title here*
I know... I usually manage to post in the morning at the wonderful start of the day. So, why am I posting in the afternoon today? Simple: My kids had a play date, and we just got back from that awesomeness. Now one kiddo is conked out, one is having a snack, and I finally get a moment to update!
Here we go!
PN Update: Yeah... still querying. Well, more like sitting back and hoping it catches the eye of someone out there. I will be honest. I have gotten my rejections. And each one hurts, no matter how nice the agent is about it. I am working hard on developing that "tough skin" we hear so much about... but it's hard! I have a post planned to rant about that... coming soon. For now though, just know that PN still exists, still fights... and it's fate will be known, someday.
New WIP: As I have mentioned before, I am itching to get back to work on In the Blood. I started ITB a bit over a year ago, then put it on hold to write PN. Now I want to revamp what I have, finish it, and see what magic happens. My hangups?
1. I really am having a hard time deciding on the POV. I originally had it in 3rd person, but now I am realizing how 1st person could add to its dynamics... and I just can't decide! Dilemma people!
2. The Title. While I do love that title... I recently found other books by the same. I know that those kind of things happen... but I just don't know if I want that to happen for my book. (Yes, being possessive here. *blows raspberry*) So, needless as it is, I have been trying to think of a new title. Trying.
3. Have you heard of Camp NaNoWriMo? No? Well, simply put, it is NaNoWriMo's solution to having the challenge available year round. I have signed up for, and I want to do it. It is planned for me to start in on August 1st, rewrite what I do have then finish this bad boy I call a book. The prob? Can I keep waiting until that date hits? I must...
Do you want to hear more about In the Blood? A synopsis? A rant? Brainstorming? Let me know. I am actually very excited to finish this project. It is very different that PN, and that new world calls to me. Now I just need to get my butt in gear!
Well, that is it for my WIP day. How is yours?
