I’m almost done with RENLEY–well, the first draft. I still have to do the hard work and the rework of it and do it in a tight deadline because I’m going to Las Vegas with my bestie for a few days on a girls’ weekend. I’ll be starting the rewrite on Saturday, watching the Superbowl on Sunday… so any writing I get done that day will be done EARLY… very early, since I get up at 0400-0500. It shouldn’t be a problem. Yes, I use twenty-four hour time. Hey, my husband used to do international travel for work, and it was the easiest way for us to sync up since most countries in Europe use it too. We never stopped using it. I also tend to write dates in European standard and use Celsius.
I suck like that, and Bri is generally correcting my date usage, and ignoring my Celsius claims.
So, here is my typo of the week. It would seem there is a sneaky camera in their gardening equipment. My characters are bizarre and do weird things. Why wouldn’t they put surveillance equipment in a hoe?
I’m a day late for WIP Wednesday because I just over adulted yesterday after I wrote, and I also had plans… I had to nap for last night (Go San Diego Gulls!). So, I did not get my WIP done in time. I suck. But you know, life is just like that at times.
Where are you on RENLEY, Ali? Why are you talking in third person?
I don’t know why I’m talking in third person–must be a sign of hysteria.
I am at the point where I invited my alpha readers in to look at the first half of the manuscript and the response has been, some chit-chat. Raylene and Bri were talking amongst one another last night while I was at the game.
All I will say is Shelby needs more love peeps. Love Shelby! He’s a sweetheart.
So my typo for the week is this… I need help, no one wants to eat toads. She was supposed to be making TOAST.
I finished JONAH on Sunday night, which was a relief. The book went out to the beta readers on Monday morning, and I thought that I would sleep for a week… but instead I woke up at 4 a.m. yesterday morning with the heroine from Renley’s book screaming inside my head to let her out so I started his book. I’m four chapters in, and really happy with how it’s going. Originally, I was thinking RENLEY wouldn’t see the light of day until May, but at this point… his book might be out late March/the start of April.
But today is Teaser Tuesday, and you are getting a tease on JONAH! Here is a little peek at Vivi and Lizzy.
