Ok, so it has been a WHILE since I posted on here. I never forgot about you livejournal, I just had to do some life stuff.
I had to go and open a tattoo shop.
(Yes, my very own. Thank you, thank you.)
The work that went into that did take away my time and energy for THE BOOK. I am sorry, I have a limited amount of creative energy and the shop took it all for a while.
But now, the shop is settled and it takes work but it is together enough for me to turn back to the book. And boy, have I turned back to it.
I am still working on revisions. Revisions still suck. But now that I am at the halfway mark, they are not as difficult. About where I dropped into SERIOUS WRITING mode on the first draft. It seems like the writing is much better and thus doesn’t need as much editing.
Now I still have characters who are getting up from standing, and walking when they are still lying down, and silly details like that I am smoothing out, but it really is much easier right now.
Of course, that scene where I got them out of that damn room is coming up, I am sure there is a rewrite waiting for me there. (grrrrrrrr.)
But I am back, back with a vengeance.
