I finished this draft of my WIP at 10:30pm last night!! It became a marathon at the end and the walls of reality got a little thin, but that’s part of the fun for me. I didn’t get in as many running miles as I would have hoped, but something had to be sacrificed to make this goal.
I already know some things I want to change in the next draft, but I need to let the story cool off for a little bit before I tinker with it again. Now my writing attention turns to WIP2 for a little bit.
But I have to pack first.
I leave in a couple of hours for Chattanooga, TN, where the kind people made SPEAK into their “A Tale for One City” book. My public session will be Tuesday at 7pm at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Location details tomorrow. I’ll also be visiting the Chattanooga School for the Arts and Science, Tyner HS, Girls Preparatory, Hamilton County Adult High and Hixson High.
I promise I’ll be getting to last week’s writing process questions, too. And trying to catch up on a frightening backlog of email. (If you’re waiting to hear from me about something, just a few more days, please?)
There goes the dryer. Gotta hop.
