I have been writing up a storm this week. I had planned on trying to do a blog entry every day this week, but I've had my nose to the proverbial grindstone trying to finish Brimstone and every spare minute in the morning has gone to that. I've almost been late to work a couple of days! But I have only five scenes left to go before I'm done - woo hoo!
Once I finish writing those five scenes, I am going to spend the next two weeks editing in the changes I am making after discussions with my CP. I will need to cut about 50 pages by the time I'm done (quelle suprise) but I think I can do it. Once I have finished the edits, I'm giving myself another week to do a read through, another week to make any final changes, and it's time to print if off! My CP is going to do a final read through of the whole manuscript and I have another published friend who has graciously agreed to read it and give me a critique as well.
I'm so excited to finally get this done and even more so to start marketing it to agents. My goal is to hit next year's conference in San Francisco with a first sale and I'm going to do everything I can to make that happen.
What about you - any of you have goals you want to accomplish before conference next year?
