It's finally Monday!

Normally I love Monday. Yeah, I'm weird like that. However, when you've promised your husband you'll try really hard not to write on the weekends...

Anyway, it's finally Monday morning. I have chores to do, but then I'll get to dig into my writing world again. At the end of last week I heard back from my publisher. Allie's suggested I tweak the beginning a bit and reintroduce my characters. It's been two long years after all since we last saw Talia and Landry.

The best part about this suggestion is that two of my critique/beta readers said the same thing. So, I've already been working on that, as well as blending the two parts of the book together better. I'm planning on another two days of combing through to make sure all the new additions are smoothed in nicely and then I'll send off SEARCH FOR KNOWLEDGE 5.0.

I'm also doing Camp Nano. Sort of. I had already started two new manuscripts, but I'm hoping CN will push me forward faster. I can't do two years before Talia's next installment. Not with the way I leave things at the end of book 2.

Are any of you doing Camp Nano? Look me up--Solstice1974

Also, it's my week on Unicorn Bell. I'm talking about character development, world building and other important writerly stuff.


  1. Obviously the suggestions have merit if several people told you the same thing.
    Now, get to writing!

  2. I don't mind Mondays either. Mostly because it's my day off at the day job, so my work week doesn't start until Tuesday. =)

    Good luck with your edits.

  3. This past weekend I did nothing. Literally nothing. On one hand. it felt wonderful not to worry about my blog and social media, but on the other hand I also struggled with writing and hated it.

    That sounds like a really good suggestion then. Good luck with edits!

  4. I kind of like Mondays, too. It's the late start day at work (although now on summer that doesn't apply). And I have a tendency to go against the popular, so if everyone hates Mondays, that means I must like them ;)

  5. I don't mind Mondays. My job is pretty fun - but I do like my days off better...

  6. I don't like Wednesdays, usually. It's the middle and by that point I'm typically tired of the week. Eh.
    I'm doing Camp Nano. Not doing so well, except I have been keeping up with my daily Twitter micropoem (though that's not given any significant rise to word count). I've got several ideas for the short stories I plan to write for it, but nothing written so far. :/
