Had a great day yesterday with good writing, good dirt time, and caping it off with good PR prep work.
I finally gave book 12 a hard look and let go of the summer solstice and moved the dates to the 4th of July. It made more logical sense for what was going on with the girls, and no one ever notices when I set a book around the solstice anyway. But the 4th? -grin- It’s hard to ignore the fireworks, right? This is my last look before I turn it in in December, so next week I have to start the rough draft of book 13. I’m starting to think I’m procrastinating, but the timing has been singularly unique that I could do the page proofs of book 11, followed by a rewrite of book 12, and then start the rough draft of 13–all in the same month. It just doesn’t happen like that, and it’s especially important to keep the flow right with the relationships I’m juggling right now.
A few hours outside moving three yards of dirt into a new bed I started a few weeks ago. A tree is coming Thursday, and I was panicking the dirt wouldn’t be there when the tree arrived. I’m going to try one of those water bags you see on new city/state trees these days. At least until the ground freezes.
And finally, I spent a couple of hours prepping the freebies for Comic Con next month. It’s amazing
what you can get done in front of the TV, and honesty, I think there were more commercials than movie thanks to creative editing, (really don’t like it when they take parts out), so I got half of them done. ore on that later. Here’s a link to my schedule if you’re going. I’ll be adding a few things here and there, maybe, so check back the day you’re actually on the floor. Kim’s Comic Con schedule.
But I said sneak peek, didn’t I? Yep, I’ve got a bit of a free spoiler of INTO THE WOODS for you via i09 today. IO9 Excerpt-Into The Woods Even if you don’t care to partake in e-books, it’s a nice tidbit for Tuesday, and will give you a good taste of what Trent’s thinking. -grin-
P.S. My mind is not here this morning. It took me three gos to actually get this post right after posting. Seriously, don’t ask me to think outside the Hollows today. I will be confused and scattered. Woe to the telemarketer and political pusher, I will be speaking in tongues.
