Dear Aledans: it’s MAY! Finally that horrible month known as April is over, and it’s the wonderful month of Trina’s Day, Vacation, and my (7th) Anniversary! (Although Hubs and I have been together for almost thirteen years now)
Camp NaNo didn’t go as well as I had planned, but it wasn’t a total bust. I’ve edited more than half of Apollo and Daphne, but I haven’t had time to type up most of those edits. I still feel like there’s something huge I’m missing, but I guess all the problems will be revealed when I send it to my critters (hopefully before vacation on the 17th). If you know your mythology inside and out and want to critique Apollo let me know – I have some “I know nothing about mythology” critters already but I need a couple more “I know my myths like the back of my hand” critters.
I’ve re-worked my query for Nameless to try to get into the Query Kombat Brackets on May 13th, and once Apollo is finished I’m going to go through the first 50 pages of Nameless again to see what needs to happen. It seems that’s where I’m losing agent interest, and I think I know exactly where it’s happening. Even Kindra says “will this night never end?” – that should have tipped me off right away.
Hubs and I have been slogging through the beginning of Martha on Dr Who. I love Martha as a companion, but all of her episodes before “Human Nature” suck. From then on she has one of my favorite seasons, but getting to that point with her is painful and boring.
I’ve also been slogging through A Feast for Crows – again, painful and boring
On the #WriteMotivation front, here’s my list again:
1. Finish first round of Apollo edits.
2. Finish critiques for Ryan and Lindsay.
3. Start critique for Tyffani.
4. Re-write NAMELESS query, and write APOLLO query/synopsis.
And #4 is already halfway done! Laura still has a couple tweaks on the query that she’ll email me about this weekend, but that sucker is just about as good as it’s ever going to get.
Trina’s Day is on Sunday, so I’ll be putting up a special, sexy Fie Eoin Friday tomorrow. I just have to decide which one. Go back in time to Kindra’s first Trina’s Day with Gar? Or maybe some sexy Faye-action with Kaye and Bryant? Or I could go way back in time to Fennec and Loria, although that might give away spoilers about the High Priestess…
I hope you have a happy May, Aledans. Don’t forget to celebrate the Feast of Lovers on Sunday and I hope to see you back here tomorrow for FEF
