My bad. I meant to update every day or every few days and I kind of dropped the ball here. I lost 2 days due to being sick. The others I worked on the Alpha Female revision. I’m actually almost to the end of the draft and have discovered that I’ll need to rewrite most of it. That’s a good thing and a bad thing. There is a lot wrong with the end. It needs to go in a different direction. I also have a few more tricks up my sleeve. The actual ending is kick ass. It’s just that what comes before sucks.
There, I said it.
Little bit of work on the Pirouette notecarding. A few awesome first lines came to me a few days ago at work (where else?) so I’m kind of excited about that. Still fending off the plotbunny from hell. I now have a kick ass first line.
“I tried to cheat Death once. Instead, I became Death.”
Doesn’t that just give you shivers?
In chapbook news, I’m pulling names tomorrow. If you want to be in on it, comment to this post or my status on Facebook. The short version is that 2 people will win a signed copy of Life as a Moving Target before it releases on Dec. 1st.
We go live in 2 1/2 weeks. I still have some stuff to finish up on the website. A “behind the scenes” page that will contain the first draft of the opening poem and a few that didn’t make the chapbook cut. Also, a bit about how the chapbook came to be, what inspired particular poems. So if you end up reading it and want to know more, stop by my website after release. Dec 1st. Got that? Good.
