Goals

I'm finally sitting down to work on edits.

Tick is not helping. He knows I'm going to be majorly reworking HOTM this summer based on a conversation I had with My Wonderful and Fabulous Editor, and he's hanging around, popping scenes into my head, just making a pest of himself, which is what he does best.

Fish is upset. He's trapped on p. 23, in the middle of ch. 2, in a liplock with Angie. As Carol said, they're going to need Chapstick.

Del? Waiting patiently although his edits will come before Tick's. I have to finish Jason's first, though.

So here are my goals for May/June/July:

1) Get TAC edits to Anne by Monday or Tuesday of this week
2) Begin first-round edits on HOL, get them out by middle of May
3) Continue making progress on Stay With Me, my WIP. I'd like to finish it this summer and begin another book.
4) Rewrite HOTM. It's not revising. It's flippin' rewriting. But it will make the book stronger and I'm looking forward to it, actually. I'm weird that way.

What do you have on your plate for the summer?

finish the wip... the one that should have been finished about 2 months ago...but that I just can't seem to get just right. It's making me crazy and I think I need to step back and take a break...but I can't seem to do that either. Urgh!!! :)
