So, I'm about six chapters into this little bastard, and things are going about how they usually go (you know, I spend over an hour trying to write two pages, all the while, fighting the urge to throw my laptop against the wall). The funny thing is, you'd think because this WIP is "technically" a re-write, I'd have an easier time with it--excuse me while a bust a gut due to uncontrollable laughter. Yeah . . . not so much. Remember, the manuscript I'm cutting from was my FIRST manuscript. My. First. Manuscript. Now, think back to your very first ms (are chills going up your spine yet?). EXACTLY my point. The writing is sub-par--at best--and voiceless. So, I'm having to clean things up before I can just plop them down in my WIP. On a good note, I do have that warm tingly feeling about this project (keep in mind, we're still in the rose-colored-glasses stage). I think it's really going to push me and challenge me, which is always a good thing (though we'll see if my laptop is still in one piece when it's all said and done ;)
In other news, I will be participating in THE HOLDERS blog tour on March 6th! Friend and author, Julianna Scott, will be here, and we will be talking about writing--one of my favorite things--kissing scenes!! AND, I'll share my favorite weak-in-the-knees scene from THE HOLDERS, so be sure to stop by!
The kiddies are actually in school today (imagine that), so I'm off to do some writing! Hope everyone is doing well, and thank you for stopping by!
