I sent what I'm calling the second round of edits back today. It felt good to finally be through with that process. It also feels good to feel good about it. Now I can't wait to have it put together and published. I think there are a bunch of little kids who love space and robots and pirates who will love reading this book.
Now to start on Nightmares in June. Technically it has already been started, but now it starts in earnest. If I stay on course I can have it out next June (**high five the goal). I can't wait to jump back into Sam's world. It's so crazy and fun.
I also have to consider my children's writers group. We have a new member who sent out a reminder that we should be writing every day. I couldn't help but roll my eyes. I didn't submit anything last month because I've been working on the middle grade book, but he didn't know that, and I didn't tell anyone. I do want to continue with my young adult book, but not whole heartedly. My main attention will be on the June book.
I can't wait for my daughter to be home. Two more weeks and all my babies will be under one roof. It's the little things.
