Finally getting back here. I’ve been crazy busy these past few weeks. Well, I signed up for Holly Lisle’s How to Revise Your Novel class, and I’ve been working on it almost every day. I’m revising Flamebound, since it’s short and it’s one of the things I haven’t tackled all year. It’s been interesting and eye-opening, to say the least.
Pirouette the Third is almost to the halfway point on the rewrite. Yay! I added a few new elements and scenes to it, and I feel that it is stronger for it. Still trying to stay within the acceptable wordcount limit, which has been challenging. But overall, it’s going pretty well.
Unforgiven is still simmering in my head. Had a few revelations which helped flesh out the main character, Amara. I also know what direction I’m going in — paranormal/thriller — and possibly how it ends (although that’s always subject to change). I will be starting on it January 1st to coincide with a challenge.
Yesterday was the 2-month anniversary of when our family drama happened. I’m still mostly numb, but I’ve been dreaming about a specific person lately and that’s a bit worrisome. In every dream, I’m saying goodbye. I think there’s a connection here. Perhaps I am working through my feelings through my dreams? I don’t really know, as I don’t feel comforted by them, just confused.
Christmas is like, just over a week away! My shopping is done. I can’t wait. l love Christmas. It’s my favorite time of year besides my birthday.
Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to all.
