This’ll be a short update, because as usual, I took it a little easier this December. It’s a good time for reflection and self-care!
If you’d like something more in-depth, I’ve done a podcast episode about how this year has affected me and my WIPs. You can listen to it on your favourite site.
I’m nearly done with the first draft! I’ve continued my still-new habit of writing for 15 minutes every day (although I did take a break for Christmas, and there was one day where I just… forgot) and this draft is shaping up nicely. I’m excited to be nearly done with it though. It’s the first time I’ve written the whole trilogy before starting the edits on Book 1, and it’s taking its toll a little. I’ve spent a lot of time with these characters now, and I’m ready for something different.
Which is probably why:
I didn’t plan on doing the first read-through of this in December, but I needed a break from the BLOOD WISP trilogy and this tempted me. I had as much fun editing it for the first time as I did when I wrote the first draft! I’ve sent it to my editor for a manuscript critique so I can get her thoughts on it, and then we’ll take it from there.
And that’s it! I have a few plans for 2021, but I’ll cover those on Monday–in the new year, if you can believe this one will be over! Because I’m still struggling to understand that it’s December.
