Hi. This is going to be short because I did a lot of planting over the past two days and my arms hurt from the shoulders down.
Thing 1 - most of last week was a bust writing-wise. I did get like 5K words rewritten on Fertile Ground. Last night, though, I had an epiphany so I may end up deleting all that and starting over.
Thing 2 -
Thing 3 - You may have noticed a title there you hadn't seen before. Yeah, well, the title 'Wrongful Termination' - while I lurve it - was bothering me for this book. It kinda gives the wrong impression of what actually happens. But I was caught in "you can't change the title now, you already told people the other title and it's at the editor and..." :shrug: I gotta do what I gotta do.
Thing 4 - I had a different epiphany while I was trying to take a nap on Friday. The premise for the sequel to the above newly-titled book hit me like a salmon to the face. I hadn't even planned a sequel for that. But there it is. And Wrongful Termination would be perfect for that new premise. Huzzah!
Thing 5 - Planting. Thursday I went to the landscaping place and bought a bunch of stuff. I planted some of it on Friday - including the forsythia bush I've named Ferdinand. He went here:
Yeah, this wasn't as short as I meant it to be, but those are all the things.
What things happened in your world last week?
Yay for planting, sore muscles and all. My weeds, I mean, the plants between my grasses have turned green, so spring can't be too far away.ReplyDelete
I love the new cover! The figure looks quite ghostly.
'Murder is never incidental' doesn't strike me, either. Maybe something like 'Murder is colder than the grave' ? (playing off your cover)
I'm halfway through 2C edits. In theory. From here out I have a bunch of vignettes instead of real chapters. I was so proud of them when I finished that draft, ages ago. What was I thinking?
I'm not crazy about 'Murder is never incidental' either.ReplyDelete
How about, Murder Most Unexpected?
It rained by me so no planting, but I'm itching to get out there.
