It’s still a slow week. The one bit of writing I managed to do was to craft most (about 800 words) of a first draft of a horror story for my Absolute Write October blog chain post later this month. I’m near the end of the queue so it won’t go up for another couple of weeks, I’m estimating.
I got my line edits back from my editor, so that will command front and center stage between now and its due date in mid-November. Funny thing, I had toned down the sexy, not to cozy levels, but way below where I had it before. The editor wants MORE sexy in three “fade to black” places. Well… :::digs toe into ground::: I guess I can do that. LOL Probably just have to dig up an older draft. Moral of the story? You’re either a cozy reader or you’re a ROMANCE reader (in big capital letters for a reason ::wink::); there is a low tolerance for the ground in between.
On a cheerier note, I’m one day into the two-day Portland Wordstock Festival . Guess who I ran into there? Guess?
Stacey Wallace Benefiel!! One of own ROW80 gals.
Here’s a few crappy photos I took with my cell phone. I’ll try to take better ones today.
My goals for this round are on my ROW80-4 page.
