I haven’t done a WIP Wednesday in quite a while. Why is that, I wonder? Oh yeah, because I look at my WIP folder and my eyes bug out of my head. Like this.
First thing, I’m trying with the utmost valor to finish my demon novel ASAP so that my writer’s group can comb through it one more time with a fine-toothed comb. I’m turning it into my agent on Monday, September 5th and then we’re throwing a party! Until he requests more edits! And then the fun begins with a new intensity. I am also currently working on:
◊ an essay about baby weight/self for an anthology put out by an awesome woman and dear friend (due ASAP)
◊ a short story titled Tattoo Your Loneliness on My Skin (due next month)
◊ an “I’m going crazy!” piece for a third anthology (due…next month? Are we still in freakin’ August?)
◊ the opening chapters of my next novel, titled Stormlight
You think I’d be all efficient and organized, knocking these out 1-2-3. And maybe I would, but I’m rocking my sweet Cyborg Ninja child with my foot while I type. Time (and sleep! Blessed, blessed SLEEP!) is precious, and I’m finding that I’m having a lot more trouble concentrating than usu–SQUIRREL.
What are you working on, my dear friends? I miss you! Keep me in the loop. 🙂
