I am so close to finishing my alternate ending of STUMPED. I had great plans of finishing it yesterday, but my computer decided to stop working. Of course that created much panic and hair pulling, but luckily my partner is a whizz at computer fixing and after diagnosing a fried hard-drive (eek!), he managed to get everything back on an external drive.
Unfortunately it took him most of the afternoon and evening, so I couldn't finish what I was working on yesterday.
Fortunately I have a system I can work on until I can get a new hard drive. So I will finish those chapters tonight and send them off. Only a day late...
I think my computer dying was the universe's way of telling me I had to take a break to go and see my best friend play a gig last night. So I did, and it was great!
Once I've sent these two versions of STUMPED to my agent, I have revisions to do on The Sidewalk's Regrets. They're smaller revisions, but feel more difficult, although I have an idea about how to change the ending so it works. And then I still have to finish revising My Murder Year.
So no NaNo for me this year. Which is kind of a shame, because I have an idea for a story I wanted to write during NaNo. But then I'll have another book to revise and I already have too much revision on my plate. So this year instead of writing a novel during NaNo, I'm going to revise two.
What are your goals this week?
