Writing Miscellany Update

So I am now, officially, an active member of SFWA, which feels totally weird and unreal and unexpected in so many ways.

Revisions for Sand of Bone are still progressing merrily. Really, I feel merry about them. I've reached my favorite stage--the place where I can hold the entire novel in my head, when I can see it as a whole rather than individual chapters and characters and plot points. If I make a change to Chapter 32, I know I have to tweak something in Chapter 3 and Chapter 25. When I reach the last few chapters, I know the words or phrases that'll discreetly connect with earlier scenes. It's the stage where everything in the novel becomes a remembered experience rather than a created story. It's when everything feels more than real.

Should my plan hold true, I can come within a handshake of finishing revisions this weekend. Then it'll need a last straight read-through to make sure I actually accomplished what I think I accomplished. And then it'll be off for a proofread and cover creation.

The nice thing is I've already started the sequel -- it was my project while awaiting beta feedback -- so I can dive right in the moment I hit the "Publish" button. (I'll also be pushing through the last of the StoryBundle selections with the intention of finalizing the bundle by the time August opens.) August and September will be time-rich months. This makes me happy beyond measure!

I'd love to do a little revising tonight, but I'm feeling just icky enough to make that a non-option. I think I'll continue cuddling with the bull-boxer-rotty instead. I've three days of writing time ahead!

Congratulations on the revision progress. I can't wait until you publish so I can read the revised version!

Hope you feel better soon. ::HUGS::
