This week, I am being sucked into the black hole that is my job. Lots of late night meetings, essays due, and the beginning of teacher evaluation season. This means little writing this week. And I'm hot to do some, so that's frustrating.
I will be off training teachers today. While that's happening, I'll be thinking about how I'm not getting orientation around.
But next week? Next week I get some of the time I'm giving to the college this week back. And I will type and type and type.
The burning, soap operatic question--Will Abigail Rath be ready for my self-imposed deadline? Yes, it will. Just like Miranda Suri's Absent project, October will be International Rewrite Abigail Rath month. I am about halfway through the 3rd draft. It looks doable. Then, the book goes out to betas in November.
I need betas, by the way. I already have some nice enthusiastic adult readers, but I would like to find a couple more kids than the one I have. So if you have a daughter or son who would like to test drive a middle grade novel about vampires and monster hunters, please let me know. I'd take anyone between the ages of 10-13.
All right. Gotta go help our Ryan set up the workshop, and act like a coordinator. See you on the other side of that.
