I meant to rip into the text yesterday, but managed to get a total of zero words down. (I’m not counting the three pages of dialog I’m going to toss) I knew it was coming, and I even warned myself. This book is laying down much more seat-of-the-pants than I’ve done in a long time, and I’m not complaining, but that does mean I have to stop about every two weeks or so and take a day to write out a couple of pages of what comes next. Yesterday was that day, the break from the keyboard prompted by an idea that I’d been kicking around the last couple of weeks but didn’t have in my outline. Friday I got to the point where I would have to make a decision, and on Monday, I puttered for about an hour with dialog before I pushed back and took up my pencil.
Today, armed with three pages of rough outline, I will push forth, and hopefully get boocoo pages to try to make up for yesterday. I, ah, also took two hours over lunch to go shopping, ’cause I don’t like crowds and avoid the stores on the weekend. I’m not sure if my logic was sound. There was a lot of people out there . . .
If you Manic Mondayed a glow-in-the-dark poster, you should be getting them today if you are east of the Mississippi. West, please give it a few more days. A lot of small post offices don’t know what to do with a tube, and it may sit on someone’s desk as they wait for an answer. If you don’t get yours by Friday, drop Guy a line.
If you have ordered a Perfect Blood Tour T, they are all in the mail as of yesterday. Again, please give them some time as the postal service is jammed, but if you feel it’s been too long, Guy will be happy to field your email. Also, check your order to be sure you gave him your address when you paid for or ordered it. We still have a small window to get Tour T’s out before the holiday break, but he needs to hear from you by the 15th. (That’s Thursday, I think.) Click to order Tour T
Guy and I are slowly working through the SASEs for Rachel’s pack tattoo . . .
