Because what's a writing blog without a writing update?
As you have seen, my main focus as of right now is If Only We, a young adult contemporary novel. I am in the process of revising and rewriting this one.
If Only We - current word count is 57,556.
Still no news here. I am getting most anxious to get back to writing though. Did I just say "most anxious"? That's what I get for watching Persuasion a couple days ago. It's been a busy week, not just work and preparations for moving... but I ended up coming down with the flu. It hit me like a ton of bricks and then it was over within 24 hours. Thank goodness! Last thing I needed was to be sick for much longer than that.
In any case, I am hoping to get myself back to normal by the end of this month. I've still been thinking about my stories in the back of my mind and writing down notes here and there, but it's not the same. One thing I have been thinking about is how being away from the story for this long might actually be a very GOOD thing for me. I always hear that you should take a break from your story when you finish it, then come back to it in a couple weeks or more. I believe this to be very wise because I can already envision how much my story will improve when my mind is not tangled up. You know that feeling, when you've been working on the same thing for too long and you just can't focus or make it any better. But anyways. It'll be good for me when I can get back to writing. In the meantime, I'll let the mindless task of packing keep the wheels turning in my mind so that I can come up with great things to write about! ^_^
