I had to pay people, but it wasn’t just that. I have a hellish migraine. I’m hoping for better tomorrow. Hope your words went better.
My most frequently asked question on THE MOON & SUN series is “When are you going to do the next book?” So I’ll answer that one now. I’m doing it next. When I come back to work after my break in December, I’m putting together the rest of the Create a World Clinic, and will use The Emerald Sun as … Continue reading →
Okay. So. Two days ago, I blasted through over 200 pages of my editor’s revision. I had forty pages left. So yesterday, I held off posting until I could com in and give my little “done” happy dance. By the time I fell into bed last night, I’d made it through twenty pages. Plus ALL THE HANDWRITTEN PAGES IN THE … Continue reading →
Before I forget… (mentioned it in an e-mail last week, but forgot to mention it here)… My Minecraft Spaceship Collection is now available. http://howtothinksideways.com/cadence-drake-minecraft-spaceship-collection/ Free download, no signup. I spent the last couple of days while I was resting building a bit of Bailey’s Irish Spacestation, which will figure prominently in at least a few of the next books. DEFINITELY … Continue reading →
Nothing. That is what I accomplished on WARPAINT yesterday. Between the migraine, stomach pain, and generally just feeling like hell, I managed NOTHING. Except for one small revelation. I can either emulate the worst of commercial publishing, and drive myself to finish a book that will be less good for being rushed in order to hit a deadline (I wanted … Continue reading →
11:16 AM I lost almost all of yesterday to a migraine. And discovered that I’m going to have to lay off the aspirin and the Tylenol to deal with migraines—I’ve started to have the stomach irritation that is a side effect of too much aspirin. As for Tylenol…most dangerous over-the-counter medication on the market if you take too much. So … Continue reading →
To those who survived Thanksgiving unscathed, I salute you. I was scathed. I have made my annual post-Thanksgiving vow never to look at food again. 😯 But. Getting back to the edits. Today I get into the parts where Matt found a major problem (in two parts) and the time off did give my mind the rest it needed to … Continue reading →
Taking the day off, so wanted to wish you Happy Thanksgiving, if it’s a holiday for you, and cheers on the writing if you’re working on your story today. I’ll be back tomorrow.
12:12 PM At least I’m up. Matt finished the edit about 7 AM. I, however, woke up at 4 AM, couldn’t get back to sleep (pinging about an edit does that to me) and when I got up at 7, had both a migraine and a sore throat. BAD sore throat—it’s been building for a few days, but today is … Continue reading →
8:27 AM Finished the novel yesterday. Today I’m working on the promo setup. My editor is already halfway through the manuscript, and the markup looks pretty ferocious. Am doing my best not to peek. My editor, incidentally, is my husband, Matt, who has been my first reader and most comprehensive editor since … either Glenraven, or Hunting the Corrigan’s Blood, or The Devil … Continue reading →
