I'd planned to spend more time reading this weekend than I did, but I did read more than I've read over the last few weekends. I'm reading one paper book and one book on my Kindle Fire. The Fire book is so much easier on my eyes, and I can read while I'm eating lunch. Or in the dark while Live-In Handyman is off in dreamland.
But I did accomplish a huge project - I organized my entire workspace. I'm pretty impressed with myself. I'm in the process of working on three separate manuscripts, in three separate stages.
- In Name Only you've caught a glimpse of here and there. More news next week...I hope.
- Solomon's Compass is edited and currently being read by my final reader for any typos or other glaring goofs. As soon as I get it back and read it aloud again, I will query. My list is made, query and synopsis are written.
- I'm getting ready to dive into drafting my WIP, Amazing Gracie. I'm hoping that actual real writing will begin next week. I love these characters, and I'm really excited about writing the story.
I don't want to make it easy to get papers from one manuscript mixed up with papers from another. I think I've Carol-proofed it. Time will tell.
It feels good to have a clear space to mess up once I start writing new words again.
How about you?
Do you clean house before beginning a new project?
Happy President's Day!
And Happy Monday!
