If white means a blank page, that’s my white Christmas. I’m editing the Jezebel novel, and it needs to go from first person point of view to third person. And I need to add in a few characters. And it’s due very soon. Thankfully, the publisher gave me a few extra weeks, so that is a help. And in between the massive edits, Christmas is sneaking up on me. This year I’ve been devoting 15 minutes every day to getting a few things done for Christmas, here at the house, and that’s a huge improvement over last year. That gives me a lot of encouragement as I face a big rewrite. Every day, I work on the manuscript. I don’t finish it but I make a little progress. And the small steps of daily progress will get me over the mountain one of these days.
Here’s what I am reading this month:
Dave Ramsey’s MORE THAN ENOUGH
Rick Yancey’s THE MONSTRUMOLOGIST
Cheryl Klein’s SECOND SIGHT: AN EDITOR’S TALKS ON WRITING, REVISING, & PUBLISHING BOOKS FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADULTS
Have a wonderful month, take a few baby steps every day towards a big goal, and get ready for a fantastic 2012.
