I woke up this morning thinking it was Monday. Took me a bit to reset the brain and convince myself it wasn't.
Saw someone this morning who'd misspelled the title of their own book in the marketing copy of a FB post. Thankfully, the cover was spelled right. Proofread, people.
So, I contacted my cover artist yesterday to let her know I was ready when she was. She's jammed, so I gave her the option of pushing the UatB cover back. It's not like I need-need it right this month. Hell, if I don't get off my dead ass, I might not need it this year. We'll see what she says.
We took a walk yesterday. It was only 48 degrees. I am so not ready for that cold yet, especially considering it was in the 80s last week. I bundled up in a turtle neck, a sweater, and a fleecy jacket. I was even wearing gloves. My core was comfortable, but my face and legs were chilly cold. Bleh. I guess I need to get back to exercising inside.
I DNFd another book yesterday. Which kind of made me sad because it was in a series I had once enjoyed. But the book was irritating the bejeezus out of me. Life's too short to continue reading irritating things. It was probably just me. There's only so long I can continue reading a series before I'm just annoyed with it. Familiarity breeds contempt and all that. I had the same thing happen with The Cat Who series and with the Dresden Files series. Which is probably why I stopped writing Once Upon a Djinn at four books. Enough was enough for me. Sorry to the readers who wanted more but writing more of those wouldn't have been a good thing for anyone.
Sitting and thinking about Ugly and the Beast, I realize the problems I was having were caused by a need to rewrite the thing. I got off on a weird tangent and it was turning into a book I didn't want to write. Do-over! But not right now because I got the edits back for Unequal.
I am so not ready to face the edits. But I'm going to get ready because I need to get this book out this year. I've made a commitment and I'm sticking to it. So, suck it up, buttercup, and get your butt to work. =op
That's enough rambling out of me this morning. Comments? Questions? Whips to crack?
