It’s time for TYPE-IN! (frikkin’ FINALLY…) #WABWM

8:29 AM

Write-in is DONE!

On to TYPE-IN! It took me 45 minutes just to get my documents and desk set up.

Scrivener revision doc, write-in pages, technical schematics, notebook with tagnotes and fixes, copies of published HTCB and the WARPAINT first draft on the Kindle so I can do quick word searches, pens, index cards, earphones (in case the Disco Queen erupts again).

And there was a certain amount of (aherrm!) cleaning necessary before those things could be put in place.

But. Working now. The write-in was massive. No idea how long the book will be. But…longer. Not sure how long it will take.

As long as it takes.

Finished the write-in last night at eleven-thirty pm, after having worked on it all day except for my meal.


Write with joy, get good stuff. 😀

    Holly, just wanted to say that as excited as I am for Warpaint, don’t worry about changing your publication date. I’ve waited years for this sequel, so a few more weeks won’t hurt me in the slightest.

    I just finished re-reading Corrigan’s Blood on the Kindle and left an Amazon review. I’ve never re-read a book so quickly in my life! I don’t know how you managed to suck me in so completely when I already knew the ending, but you did.

    Also, the poem made me cry. Again. Sigh.

      I’m getting happier with it every day. I keep reminding myself that rushing is not in the best interests of the story…but I want to have it done so people can READ it.

    2516 words today for a Nano total of 15120. The plot thickens! Really, it’s actually thicking…conflicts are emerging, characters are becoming three dimentional…junk food is getting low…

    Thank goodness for a friend’s belated birthday tonight! I can finally thaw the chocolate ganashe torte in the freezer.

    I’ll still take some fries with that, though.

      Congrats on the word count. Sorry about the junk food par level drop.

    Awesome news Holly! Rock it out! Sounds like you’re set up and ready to go.

    I’m getting amped up on the morning java – ready for my first word sprint.
