I started writing the first draft of book 2 of my mermaid/selkie series. More lovingly referred to as The Sea Monster Memoirs.
That's not the insane part.
At RWA one of my roomies attended a panel about writing your first draft in 2 weeks.
No, that's not a typo. 2 weeks. Twenty pages a day. Do or die.
The theory is that the draft will be pure crap, but the obsessive creation process will kick in somewhere during week one and you will become a lean mean writing machine.
So a few of us started yesterday. And failed.
I proudly wrote 12--almost 13 pages. (Woot!)
But I assure you, most of it is crap.
Here's where I dive even deeper into the sea of insanity...
3 of those pages were for a totally different book. My new shiny idea that has nothing to do with the ocean, or sea peeps. (Quite the opposite actually.) And it's in present tense.
My other manuscript is in past tense. Yup, slap a sticker on me...My name is Crazy.
In other crazy fun news, Saturday is the 20th. You know what that means...
It's time for another winner of The Girl of Fire and Thorns by the beyond-amazing-and sweet, Rae Carson.
And this month I'm not pre-ordering a copy for you. Winner. Gets. An. ARC.
So, if you haven't entered then go HERE and comment. You must be a follower of my blog to win and you must leave a comment convincing me to choose you as the winner.
That's right. This drawing ain't random. BEST COMMENT WINS!
So if you commented before but you know it wasn't all that fabulous, go comment again and add some sugar and spice to it.
Also, this ARC is a collector's item because it's the original cover version. Stop drooling and go enter!
Thanks for stopping by! Have an insanely great week.
