1. I had no idea the blog had changed. I like The Vermilion Christmas Theme.
Cool Ann Dee and Cam.
So Ann Dee and I have about two pages of our book written.
I haven’t read her part.
But I know we both talked about breakfast. Ann Dee told me.
That’s hat happens when you write a book with someone and don’t read each other’s stuff.
Soon we will be able to read each other’s stuff and then . . . well, we will write a book that falls in the genre that editors aren’t supposed to want any more of. Yup. Dystopian. Plus there will probably be a lot of food stuff going on. Like breakfast.
2. One Hour On, One Hour Off
It actually worked. I was able to write a chapter of the book I’m working on with Cheri and work on my own novel, too. I had to do about 30 minutes of research for the historical fiction. Some people do love research. Yes. Some people do.
I haven’t perfected the timing yet. But on days where I must get writing done AND do several other chores, this is good for me.
One thing I found was when it was time to stop writing, I could do that easily.
When my hour was up and I was maybe helping my mom or Carolina, I couldn’t just stop.
Maybe Two and Two would work.
3. Cheri and I are signing this Saturday at The King’s English, 2:00 in the afternoon. Manelle, our illustrator, will be there, too. It’s weird to think we are writing the fourth book of this series. It’s also weird to think it’s going to be cold for a long time.
One response to “Three Things Thursday”
Let me repeat that, because it’s important: the guidelines in this series are for BOOK manuscripts and proposals, and thus should not be applied to other kinds of writing. Similarly, the standards applicable to magazine articles, short stories, dissertations, etc. should not be applied to book proposals and manuscripts.
