An indie novelist muses about writing, society, and the arts.
Yesterday my oldest baby turned 20! We went to lunch and ran errands, then she went on to school while I tried a new veggie lasagna recipe and baked her Red Velvet cake and worked on my new website design.
I also received that pretty Nanowrimo winner badge you see up above for reaching over 50K words during March. My total was 57,672 and the first draft isn't finished after 2 months of Wrimo'ing, but I'm now at the last third of it and will again let it rest while I go back to my other WIP.
In answer to an off-site blog post yesterday, I came up with a three sentence "sell" for Off The Moon:
Ryan has never taken care of anyone but himself and rarely takes care of himself. When he finds a young girl stepping out onto a window ledge, that changes, drastically. How will he keep a skiddish girl with nowhere to go safe in the midst of his intense, self-centered pop star world without letting himself fall for her?
*shrug* Would you read this or at least pick it up to look at it? Can you sell your own WIP in three sentences? Do it here if you want!
Today I did the review for The Moonstone. It's here if you're interested: "Invalid Item" . This is one of my favorite lines from it:
"The upshot of it was, that Rosanna Spearman had been a thief, and not being the sort that get up Companies in the City, and rob from thousands, instead of only robbing from one, the law laid hold of her, and the prison and the reformatory followed the lead of the law."
Still pretty relevant, although the book was written in the 1800s.
Much of the rest of the day I'll be working on my website redesign trying to have it ready for tomorrow, which is the launch party for Classic Romance Revival.
I also need to figure out what prizes I'll be giving away at the party!
I may not have everything on the site I want there, but I'll have all the basics.
How's your yesterday, today, and tomorrow looking?
