WORKING AWAY

This week is all about busy work.

First up I am doing rewrites and beta edits on Flipped 1. It’s sitting at 16K and I need to get it to at least 18K if not 20K, tho I doubt that will happen.

I’ve had good words for the story, it’s lighter then I normally write, or maybe not but they’re harder for me to write. Or is that just what we all go through when we get to a certain point in a story.

I have a hope that I’ll either write another Matching Mates book, I have wanted to write this one since I finished the first. It’s a little different then how I’m hoping the rest of the series goes as it’s a little bit heavier but it’s still what the series is meant to be, and that’s sex. And 6K of sex doesn’t take me all that time to write. A weekend *smiles*

If I can’t, and I’m not going to push it, because next week I have to get back into Encounter Space, 20k to write this month (*hush tones* that’s two stories, people, please don’t get your hopes up, I won’t be writing novels in MM until probably 2019)

So I’m not going to push myself, there’s no point, I tend to need time off after writing a story and I don’t really have that time for that. Encounter Space MUST be written, at least 1, because it needs edited before January, and I want it into it sooner rather than later.

What I’ll be doing instead, because for lots of reason I can’t seem to tell myself I’ll be writing this week, I’ll be getting back into Different beta edits, because that needs to be done too, that needs to be read through and to be back out of my hands again, edited. I know its not going to be finished by Christmas like I hopes, but it’s not important, I can wait. It’s a debut novel for McGee so it’s going to be perfect before I get that first copy printed.

Still it also needs doing. And it’ll give me something to do, to keep me busy.

I’m also hoping to create a something inside me again, I want to read, I’ve been missing it, but still can’t seem to get myself to actually read something new, so it’s also what I’d like to start this week, what I’d like to get myself into a habit of. The depression broke a lot of them for me and I’m over it, I want things back.

So if all I end up doing is edits on Flipped and then read for the week I wouldn’t be that hard off. I wouldn’t care that much. Though Flipped has to be done, its coming out in less than 2 months.

So that’s a plan for me. What are you guys up to?
