Sunday Snaps: Tuckered Out (but in a good way)

Hey friends! It’s been longer than usual since I’ve blogged or shared a snap, but I think I had a good excuse. I’ve been going over the final draft of my latest novel manuscript with a fine-toothed comb in recent weeks—a little snip and tighten here, an extra fleshing out there—and I’m happy to say it is finally in the hands of its first beta reader.

Due to a few changes made, it took longer to get to this point than plannedย when I blogged about the final draft in June, but between the jigs and the reels and the hope that feedback is mostly positive, here we are.

Much has fallen by the wayside getting to this stage, so I’ll take the coming week to finish reading Jacqui Murray’s latest novel, and begin another one for my online book club. Along with that I’ll catch up on neglected chores and, of course, all my favorite blogs. (Sorry for not commenting much lately, bloggers!)

I had hoped to take part in NaNoWriMo this month, but instead my plan is to write a blurb, query letter and synopsis for submissions to publishers. I also hope to complete the outline for Book 2 of my speculative fiction trilogy by month’s end. That way, writing the first draft can begin on December 1.

I’m tuckered out, but also STOKED. I feel good about the book and am more focused than ever on my writing.

But first, I will follow Vivian’s lead: flake out, hang out, and recharge. See you next week.

  1. Congratulations on your first draft and no wonder you’re stoked! A little celebration dance and your plan for November sounds perfect considering where you are with your book. Best of luck! Hope the outline for Book 2 goes well – a busy month for you! Lovely to see you back, Jennifer and may we all take a lead from Vivian now and then … totally chill out! Looks sooo good! Happy Sunday!๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒบ

    1. Thanks, Annika! It’s great to blog a bit again. I’ve missed it. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Final draft, not first for Book 1, and on to the first draft of Book 2. I’ll try to veg for a few days and clear the clutter from my house, and my brain, then back at it again. I honestly don’t know what I would do if I wasn’t into writing fiction. Hope your writing is going well too. Happy Sunday right back atcha! โค
