So, I got sick–the flu sucks. I got my flu shot but it didn’t save me though. I must have gotten one of the strains that I was vaccinated for. But because misery likes company, I gave it to my husband and now he’s super sick. My sister is still holding strong, the girl has the constitution of an ox. I hope she remains that way because it really sucked.
All that said, I didn’t have a lot of time to work on Jonah last week between DayQuil shots. But I had a hypomanic recovery and I’ve written five chapters since Saturday. My goal today is only 3000 words and I haven’t started yet, so I have to get going. Yoinks!
Started working on Jonah again and I’m chugging away at it like The Little Engine That Needs More Coffee. I have a little WIP Wednesday typo for you today, though. I apparently can’t write ‘eff that’ with the nearing holidays without an elf showing up.
Oh goodness, it’s been a while. It’s hard to get back on track once you’re off-track but hopefully, my planner is more or less set again. No more shaken and stirred events setting it off the path. I am mixing metaphors, but I’m allowed, it’s been a testing time. I’m still stressed.
I’m still struggling with this manuscript. Won’t lie, I just don’t have the asshat, Jonah’s voice. I’m so ready to can him and write someone else’s book. But, in the meantime, I do have some images that I’m using for inspiration.
That’s what I have for you this week, two of my inspiration images.
I started working on JONAH on Monday and I’m tired. Writing is exhausting. I’m on an intensive schedule for the rough draft and supposed to be doing roughly 5000 words/day. I don’t wanna write anymore and it’s the third day.
But I do have a WIP hot mess to share. This one is in chapter 3. There is a lot of reaching out and pulling out (get your mind out of the gutter) going on here.
JONAH’s rough draft should be done by the end of the month… or when my soul rots, whichever comes first.
First, let me just tell you… I could not spell outlining to save my life and had no idea how I was spelling it wrong until I realized I left out the ‘line’ part.
My brain is fried.
So JONAH is next, and I start his book on Monday. I have a schedule already set out for the rough draft. I have August 15th to the 31st to write it. Then, I go into my second draft which is from September 1st – October 1st. It then goes to the betas before I get it for the final draft.
