Tomorrow I have to go back to school. I haven't really packed anything yet... I'm kinda just avoiding my room at all costs if I'm totally honest. I get to distracted in there. Ironic that the place in my house that is mine, it the room I can't work productivly. It is most likely because it is so cold in there.
How about that quote? I love the things I find on pinterest.
Last week was a pretty good writing week. I read through some of my chapters and figured out where I needed to expand. When I originally started writing The Frituals it started out as a single POV story, before growing to the nine or so POVs it is now. So as I went through the draft again I found sections that were as little as 300 words long, just a summary of what it could be because I didn't know the character's voice yet. So I have started to rewrite those 12 chapters, 2 down, 10 to go. This should help to expand my word count closer to what it should be. Then I can go in and do a deeper edit.
Since I am not working in such a chronological order on the draft I will not be posting anymore chapters to wattpad for a time. So we will let those first three chapters stand as a preview to what is to come. Though they will probably change.
The next few weeks may see a change in my blogging schedule. I want to try to keep my three day a week schedule, but I know the first two weeks of school are going to be very busy so I don't want to promise anything. I might drop Friday's posts for the month of February and see how that goes.
I am prepping for the future though. It may seem early but I have written a very rough draft of a query letter for the Friutals, and have started to compile a list of agents, and what they require for submission so come summer I can get right to it.
