I think I shot my wad yesterday with all the news revolving around Comic Con, The Hollows Insider, the costume contest, and oh yeah . . . the little thing about the TV opportunity. -grin-
I will admit that I’m more relaxed right now than I’ve been in about a week or so, having gotten Comic Con and most of the tour signings behind me. There was pressing business on my desk as well, which is being shipped off this AM, leaving me with what I’ve been trying to finish up all month. My schedule looks pretty clear until February. (dude!) and I’m going to need it. I’ve been busting my hump trying to get this rewrite off my desk so I can participate in NaNoWriMo from day one, but it looks like I’m still going to be coming into it about a week late. I’m up to version D now on book 11. I wanted to turn in version C, but I’m not quite happy with some of the transitions, so I’m going through it one more time. Tweaking should be minimal, and I’ll probably finish it up by the 1st. I’ll need a week to plot out the next one, and then I can start to write with all you NaNo’ers.
If you’re gearing up for NaNo and find yourself staring at a blank page, I do have a couple of past posts on how I outline that might help jump-start you. But please remember that there are as many ways to write as there are people who want to do it, and you just have to keep trying things until you find what works for you. (I’m thinking of writing something as a Pantster this summer, which both scares and delights me.) If you click the link, you’ll have to start at the bottom and work up. :-) How Kim Outlines
I got my author copies of the Insider yesterday and sent out the thank-you copies to the winners of the reader contest I had this summer for inclusion into the HOLLOWS INSIDER. If you remember, I actually had the chance to meet two of the winners in person at Comic Con NY, and give them their copy early. That was Too Cool.
