Um, yeah. I’ve been working on Pirouette (up to page 88 of 281) and promoting both Life as a Moving Target and Without Wings.
I’ve had some issues with Pirouette. I’ve made a very critical change to the book near the beginning, and while I believe it will make everything stronger, it kind of threw me for a loop. Alisia and Lucien have to react to this and it’s not something they’ve encountered before. Also, they are newly married, so things are a bit tricky right now.
I just finished the second new scene of 3 and I’m not sure I nailed it. Lucien leaves the room at the end, and I didn’t plan that. I asked my muse, “WTH? Why did he leave?” And my muse hasn’t answered my question yet. I hope she will sometime soon.
I’m also a bit worried about the length. Two words: Growing. Again.
In cheerier news, I have some new and not-so-new stuff happening. I’ve decided my next project is to try to finish the revision of Flamebound and then begin the rewrite. I have some ideas for that, and I might try to fit in some revision work here and there when I can. Pirouette is still the priority though.
And lastly, I have an idea for a horror story. I don’t even know what it wants to be – short story, novella, or novel. It came fast and furious in the shower one night and I’m pretty excited. Just don’t know when I’ll be working on it. It doesn’t even have a title yet.
So that’s what’s shaking here in my world. Stay tuned.
