Ready. Set. Write is a summer blog hop set up by Jaime Morrow, Alison Miller,Katy Upperman, and Erin Funk. You can head to any one of those blogs if you'd like to participate. Every Monday, you can go to any one of those blogs and post a link to your check-in post.
My kids are in school for one more week, so part of me wants to be super productive, while the other part of me doesn't. I have two WIP right now. One just got sent to our lovely betas, and the other is an editing job I haven't yet begun.
My goals this week are to spend a little time writing each day, but not to expect huge things from myself. There are too many other things I need to do this week.
My overall summer goal is to:
Finish Pyromancy: Part 1. We (my co-authors and I) plan to publish it in October, so this summer I need to finish it AND get all the marketing stuff scheduled.
Get Pyromancy: Part 2 ready for betas.
Get Prophecy outlined. We've never written using an outline before, but this final book needs one. We've got too many loose ends to tie up to leave it all to chance. Writing by the seat of our pants is the reason why Pyromancy turned into two books instead of one (which is awesome. But Prophecy needs to stay just one book.)
I'm looking forward to meeting everyone for this year's Ready Set Write. Thank you to the ladies who set this up!
