WIP Day - Cover Headaches

Today I woke up... tired.  Very tired.  And my boys have been going nonstop since 6 am, making messes and lots of noise.  So, needless to say, I am fighting a major headache at the moment and boy are my eye lids heavy.  I really am forgetting what feeling awake feels like.

Bed sounds so tempting...
But I must update!
*Blinks eyes*

I was going to shoot the image for the cover this last weekend, but some things came up with my model and... well... it didn't happen.  I have a new model now and am aiming to shoot this coming weekend.  We will see...

Let me tell you: Making the cover for PN is proving to be HARD.  I want something just right... yet nothing seems to be that "right" thing.  I am really hoping that the shoot goes well and I get a shot that finally helps me create the cover.  We all know people do judge books by the cover.  I know I do.  And if my cover isn't feeling right, I just know I won't be happy with the book either.  Sad, I know.

I still need to do one last editing pass of this bad boy.  I will.  I will I will.  I think I am dragging my feet mostly out of nerves.  This is quite a nerve-racking thing!  I just need to take a deep breath, and do it.


It's almost here!
Yes, the book has been chosen.  No, I haven't plotted too much yet.  As most of you know, I am much more of a pantser.  I would love to get at least the rough idea outlined before November 1st hits though, so it has been added to my list of things to do.  As soon as I do sit down and ponder it, I will make a post sharing what my project will be.

Along with that, I have created a sponsor page.  NaNoWriMo is a free, non-profit organization, and they need out help to remain in existence.  I have a post planned out to talk more about this and how to sponsor me, soon.  But if you feel like it, just click here to go to my page now.  Or click the image to the right.  Go ahead.  Do it.  It won't bite.

In other news... 
Wordstock is this weekend!  I wasn't able to make it at all last year, and I was bumming.  While I am unable to make it to the Saturday session this year, I have it set and planned to be there Sunday.  I am pretty excited!  Maybe I will happen to run into some of you there.  If I manage to look up from the piles of books that will most likely be surrounding me.

Are you going?

Well, that's it for today.  I would love to ramble more, but I think I just heard a crash in the boys' room and someone is laughing hysterically.  This bodes badly.

How is your WIP day?

Happy Writing!

Wordstock sounds awesome!
I'm excited about NaNo. It's gonna be a biiiiig year for me. But before Oct is over I have heaps to get done. ARGH!
I have rough plans for NaNo but I too am mostly a pantser. So I'm not too worried about planning.
