Edits are still clicking along. I now have 5 chapters edited. Two of those are still making the crit buddies rounds, so there will be more revising, but the first three chapters are, dare I say it, POLISHED! Woohoo!! Well, let's be honest, I'm always going to find something else to tweak, but I think they are pretty decent. Finally. Now....I just need to get the other 20 chapters all nice and shiney and we are good to go. Ha!
I got some more research done on my up and coming WIP - I'm excited about it! Which is why I have been pushing myself to get the edits on the current WiP finished. Time to focus on something else!! :D
Doing great on the reading list also. I read Scott Westerfield's Uglies series this week. Loved them all! I've also started reading The Last Queen by C.W. Gortner. I'm enjoying it, but I'm not sure I'm in the mood for an historical right now, so I may go book hunting again. Actually, I need to go get the new Vampire Academy book. That will be my goal for next week :)
How is everyone else doing? Read anything good lately? Getting those manuscripts written and polished?
Oooo, and Kat over at Words, etc. introduced me to a fun, new way to waste time :D Making a fake book cover! Here are the two I ended up with (I like the first one best):
To make your own, here are the directions:
1 – Go to “Fake Name Generator” or click here.
The name that appears is your author name.
2 – Go to “Random Word Generator” or click here.
The word listed under “Random Verb” is your title.
3 – Go to “FlickrCC” or click here.
Type your title into the search box. The first photo that contains a person is your cover.
4 – Use Photoshop, Picnik, or similar to put it all together. Be sure to crop and/or zoom in.
5 – Post it to your site along with this text.
