It is May, which means that summer is just around the corner. *peers at the weather prognosis* Hopefully. Today has been glorious, but most of May have felt like the weather thinks it is late Mars. Burrr. I bought a thin down jacket, just because of the weather. (That, and it is handy when travelling.)
I also have a dishwasher saga, that went from “replace the dishwasher” to “replace the electricity.” Yeah, Ow. I have hired an electrician, though we haven’t set a date. I had planned to call and ask today, but I forgot.
Anyway. The second draft of The Shifter’s Justice is progressing nicely. As in, I’m about to start revising chapter 4 and I have added 7000 words to the book already. Oh and the projected wordcount is 35 000 words. I am pretty sure it will be longer than that.
I am having fun writing this draft, and I can see how much I have grown as writer since I wrote it. It also makes me want to go back to Vanished, though hopefully Vanished will be pretty solid. Though to be fair, The Shifter’s Justice is pretty solid. I think. Maybe. (I always think my books are pretty solid, until I discover that they isn’t. LOL)
I am also hoping that this revision will not take me 4 months, since I have figured out that if I use Scrivener’s fullscreen mode, I write a lot more than if I don’t. That in combination with revising the chapters backwards (which I haven’t done yet. Ahem) should ensure that the draft goes smoothly. (I know, I know. I probably jinxed it now.)
Oh! I am going to be at Åcon at the end of May. If you are there, come and say hi.
