Back To Our Program Already In Progress

Afternoon All,

Okay, let's just say I'm blinking in amazement right now. I never expected comment I made on someone else's blog would generate so much traffic on my comment section (especially on one about laughing LOL). But in any case, thank you for the nice comments and the compliments. I appreciate it. Please, if you have something to say about another blog where I posted a comment, direct it to my email: bethanyintexas@yahoo.com I'll be happy to correspond with you about it there. I'm not trying to be rude, I just like to keep my blog pretty much about writing since that's it's purpose (NO offense meant to anyone).

Anyway, moving along. I sent my revised chapter 1 of Conjure A Man to the illustrious Tessy (my CP) and she sent me back comments (again, some good ones). A few things I'm gonna have to take more time to think about. On another note, until further notice, CAM is on hiatus. I just need to get away from it for now. I love the idea, and I love the title, it's just I'm not loving how it's going currently.

I've got another project--it's a secret--but I think it's mostly a YA Paranormal Romance based on the ages of the main characters. That could change, but for now that's that.

Surreal is undergoing a form of surgery--word count surgery. I'm trying to bring the word count down. (Over 124,000 words--EEEEKK!) So yeah, some major word cutting going on there, but I think it'll help with my editing as well. It's going very well thus far, so I'm pretty happy about that--but still a lot more to do.

What are you currently working on? How's it going?

Have A Thrilling Thursday!

I am about halfway through the first edit on my wip. Its going fine, but I am so distracted by Christmas! The shopping, putting up lights, travel plans, its all killing me! I love it.

LOL Marsha,

Yeah, I love this time of year. :-) But yeah, it is hard sometimes to "buckle down" and write. I've been writers' blocked lately and frustrated, I haven't felt inspired or motivated...maybe I just need to continue working on the whole word count on "Surreal" and leave the writing alone for a bit.
