My poor, poor neglected blog. I’m so sorry you’ve come last on my list. But thanks to #WIPMarathon, you’ll be getting some extra special attention for the month of August! *squishes sad blog in a bear hug*
Marathon Goal: I’m working on a YA choose-your-own-adventure book. It’s a beast. A fire-breathing dragon. Every time I think I might be done with it (not done, done… just like, done with first revisions), I find something new that needs major work. I wanted to have it ready for a pitch contest that’s coming up soon but I’m not sure if that’s too lofty of a goal. I’m also working on a sequel to FATAL, my zombie story.
Stage of writing: Revisions. The icky stuff… fixing plot holes, adding depth, tweaking dialogue.
What inspired my current project: A conversation with my hubs.
Him: “Hey, remember those CYOA books from when we were little? You should write one of those.”
Me: “Are you CRAZY?!?!”
Me, a little later: “You ARE crazy!”
Me, a little later-er: “You’re crazy but… it’s not exactly a horrible idea.”
What might slow down my marathon goal: I’m a stay-at-home-mom of two and I homeschool my 6-year-old so… yeah, that might slow me down. We start Monday so I’ll let ya know. ;)
