Almost

I can't believe I am almost finished with this book. Well, the official first draft anyway. Next comes the rather painful editing process, and I know there are plot holes and all sorts of mess to correct. I'm hoping to get that squared away by the summer so I can have the book out in the fall of 2014. I promise book 3 of the Shadowside Trilogy won't be so long in coming. I am, however, taking a break from that universe after this. I need to write something else for a while. And how I ended this one has been emotionally draining. I think I need to write something less serious next.

You know how sometimes you're writing and things just happen? I'm writing the new ending to "The Fourth Corner" and something I wasn't planning on revealing in this book just sort of slipped itself in. It works where it is, but my characters just surprised me.

A little over 8900 words to go. This is it!

Editing volunteers, thank you, but... I AM NOT FINISHED WRITING THE STORY YET.

Cool your jets, you wonderful lovely folks. I will get it to you when I am finished. I'm close, but it'll probably be sometime this weekend before I have completed it. I still have to work and make my dishes for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. I'm at 20,000 words. It'll likely be about 25,000-30,000 words, so not quite there yet. Please stop asking me to send it to you tonight so you can have it back to me tomorrow. *grin* Not done. You're making me feel rushed. LOL. I will be working on it tonight though, as I have been the last two nights.

And I don't need anymore editing volunteers, thanks. I didn't realize how many emails I'd get, and to the lovely troll who offered to read it, so you could (ADMITTEDLY) tell me how "godawful" it was... I have an ass you can kiss. Go drink some ball sweat. Thank you, good day.

In other news, royalty check was deposited to the bank today. Yes.

I'm upgrading Echo's archives today. They will be funky for a couple of hours. Please don't bombard Echo with emails about the funky archives.
Little does she know whe I opened my inbox this afternoon when I finally got home... Kapow! Bombardment had already occurred. It's being worked on, folks. Cool your heels. Read me at Twisting the Hellmouth if it's that big of a fanfic emergency. (http://www.tthfanic.com)

Going to be picked up to go to roller derby shortly. Not talking about this weekend either... for various reasons. Been writing the last few hours. Wrote a scene I've been dying to write since I started "In Shadowside". Will likely write more when I get home from the bout if I am not too tired. Oh and I finally came up with a title for the third Shadowside book... "Sparked".

Tomorrow is [livejournal.com profile] tthjinni's birthday.

So here's a little tease of the short "Cat and Crow". It's about 600-700 words. Spider-centric. Very rough. This could all change by the time it hits the press, but the basic idea will be the same. Enjoy.

It's a writing day. I feel disconnected, but in a good way. I'm so in my head right now, I don't think I could function in the real world. I owe [livejournal.com profile] kira_snugz some fic still. Will try to get to that this week. Swear. I just got back from out of town for the family reunion... which I am not going to talk about right now.

In writing news, guess what Shadowfans? If you were not going to buy Carpe Noctem, the antholoy myself and Marie Hughes are working on, now you might wanna. There's a little story going in there called "Cat and Crow". It's some Spider backstory which some very familiar names and faces thrown into the mix. I'll be throwing up a 300-400 word tease of it soon.
