This is the final week of this ROW round, and it's coincidentally the last big push for me. My husband will be out of town all week, and I have made the goal of FINISHING up Zyander by the end of the week. I'll have an hour in the mornings, 2 hours or so at nap time, and another 1.5 hours at bedtime to work. If I can't get it done by Friday, I never will. :)
The downside is that I won't be able to announce my triumph via ROW, but for those of you who read my blog outside of that, and all the readers that I've passed along this URL to, be on the lookout this coming Saturday or Sunday for some big news! If I get it done, I'm going to have some big celebration time, because this book has been in the works for almost a YEAR now.
So let's all cross our fingers and see what the next week brings.
Some interesting things in the internet world:
Remember THIS entry from last week? Well, it turns out an author has an opinion about traditionally publishing. It pretty much echoes what I said and others commented, still I found it interesting to read. Find it HERE.
In that same vein, remember how I said I was SHOCKED at traditionally published authors who were able to earn a living? Well, Francesca Lia Block, who has dozens of books, is losing her house. Find out about it HERE.
And finally, my local writing friend and I have talked about doing one of those letter books, where you both come up with a world and a each create a character and then have that character send letters to the other character. Except she went back to school and we never got around to it. :( But then I read THIS and man, I want to do that! I just have to find the time. hahaha Maybe after I finish Aeris I can round up some authors. :)
So, in honor of this last week of ROW80, I will change up my closing.
Happy WRITING, everyone, and good luck!
