Inevitable Brainmelt

happy I must be ready to achieve liftoff on the third Gallow & Ragged book, because yesterday I had an intense spike of irritation having to do with the printer. It must have sensed I was distracted, and thought it could escape work by simply remaining still and quiet, even though it has plenty of toner.

I almost had a…moment with it.

Ahem. Anyway.

My plan is to get far enough on Wasteland King that when I shift over to copyedits for another book, it will make the former jealous and raise it to a high boil. There’s also the little matter of the werewolf cop book I want to finish this year. Anything else I finish between now and December is gravy, so I might as well open up another slot on my work schedule. Hm.

I find I’m taking longer to write a zero draft these days, but the zero doesn’t need nearly as much work to turn it into a respectable first draft anymore. I would think that I’m fooling myself, but my editors seem to agree. I can only think that I’m doing a lot of editing in my head as the words initially come out, which could be a blessing or a curse. I tend to work hot and fast anyway, anything that slows that down might help with the inevitable brainmelt.

So that’s it. Wasteland King, here I come. But first, there’s running to be done, and dogs to pet.

One must always do the important things first.

you know of my love of werewolves… and my impatience.

I’m convinced printers feed on human misery. It just makes sense 🙂
