It's been over a month since I blogged last! How in the world did that happen?
Well, actually I know how. For some reason I thought it would be smart/fun/a good idea to sign up for three intense summer courses (I'm desperate to graduate, really) and these courses basically stuff everything that you would learn in a full four month semester into one month. It's not just my online friends who haven't seen me lately... no one has.
I haven't returned e-mails, I haven't tweeted as much and obviously, I haven't blogged. So if you're waiting to hear from me, give me a day or two and I'll be back in action. I'm currently procrastinating while I should be finishing a final project, and decided to post something to explain my absence. So I'm not back for real quite yet.
A quick book/writing update: Somehow, I found time to do my first round of revisions on MISFITS during these intense classes. I still love this book and actually can't wait to dig into it for the second time... I'm thinking I'll end up doing three to four rounds, reading it a different way each time, whether on my Nook, laptop or on paper. I have three weeks off before a very full, but not nearly as intense, fall semester starts and I'd like to be done revising by the end of August.
Also, while I'm revising MISFITS I'm working on a new WIP. I swore on Twitter I wouldn't talk about it, but I'm among friends here, right? Right. So, the other night I accidentally sat down and wrote the first chapter of MISFITS 2. I know, I know. You shouldn't write a sequel to a book that hasn't been repped or sold yet. I know. But I've been in a tiny (read: HUGE) funk lately and while I sat around wondering what I could do to cheer myself up, I realized it was writing the next story for my MISFITS characters. I'm only doing this for me, and I swear I'll write something new in November for NaNoWriMo. MISFITS 2 is really just me wanting to write it, without thoughts of what will happen when I put MISFITS 1 out to agents.
Oh, wow... so this wasn't as quick of a post as I thought it would be. I should go finish this project. After that, I'll be back for good though.
I MISSED you all!
