The Writing Resolutes ~ February Check-In

Well, so far so good this year. Yesterday, I completed a second draft of book four (Me & Johnny) of the series I’ve been writing, Human Touch.

Not Human Torch, nor is it Johnny Storm related, purely coincidental…

I somewhat apologize for my ridiculous puns.

Not really.

Anyway, I am so happy it’s complete. Then someone was so kind to print, comment, make notes, and check edits of the newest, best, and last edition of Human Touch (which I swear auto-correct on the new laptop is worse than auto-correct on my old laptop). I finished that out yesterday, too. Two stories done, ish. Still waiting for others to comment or notate on that one, because I might have missed something else or I like to have a consensus…

The problem I have is what to do with it once the final/final is done. Wattpad always sits in my head as one of the top options. Self-pub? Maybe. I’ve also been considering doing podcasts with it…as in the whole freaking series! (Over nine books either written or planned at this point.) Something along the lines of Welcome to Nightvale! But, those microphones can be expensive. And I’ll have to find a place to record along with people to play the parts. That last one would be the easiest thing to accomplish on that short list.

On the agent front, Love, Darrows is still with an agent. Not sure if I should poke and prod for info there or not. I don’t want to be pushy, but at the same time, it’s been months since she’s responded to me…

Sync or Swim is being edited and prepped to send to an agent who has said they wanted my next contemporary LGBTQ book…so fingers crossed that I get it done and off soon.

In the meantime, I am always searching (BIG THANKS TO kiTT FOR POINTING OUT PUB OPPORTUNITIES) for the next submission…

So far this year, I might not have gotten my foot in the door yet, but I feel like I am getting stories done. Which is always a good thing to someone in the authoring process. IMO.

#AmEditing, #AmListening, #AmReading, #AmWatching

#AmFeelingLikeAMajorGoofOff right now.

Only two chapters edited for today, so far. But, the upside of this time’s editing process…I have yet to fall into the story! Meaning I am getting some real work done on Wings by sticking to the random chapter rule. It’s GREAT! I have no idea why I never thought of doing this before…

While #AmEditing, I #AmListening to the new Panic! at the Disco album, Death of a Bachelor. Pure Panic! at it’s best! The songs are so eclectic and different and yet so familiar and loved. Best song? IDK. Depends on my mood, though I will say a few songs are definitely stuck in my head, though.

I do not listen while #AmReading, though.

Especially with the new find…that I’m not quite sure what to make of yet. The Oddfits by Tiffany Tsao. {on Goodreads here}

I’m just over 30% complete with it (according to the bottom corner of my Kindle) and I’ve felt enraged, teary, and starving to death. Murgatroyd Floyd…something about that name…I LOVE IT, and honestly, it was something that drew me to the book to begin with. I’m so very curious to see where this story goes. Because, as of now, I don’t have a single clue.

And when I’m not editing, listening, or reading, I #AmWatching a few shows. There’s X-Files…which brings that feeling of needing to be paranoid about everything back to the forefront, Lucifer, still looking for the first half of season 6 of Pretty Little Liars, waiting for the new season of Baby Daddy (and watching reruns of the episodes I’ve just watched), and my favorite of them all right now:

AGENT CARTER.

Not because she’s related to Cap. Okay, so because she’s related to Cap, but so much more: fantastic storylines, so much humor, Easter eggs, and awesome that is not limited to Peggy herself, but she is the tops. (oh…don’t pick up 1940s lingo…don’t…) Two episodes into the sophomore season of Agent Carter and I want season three like now! I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH!

I will admit, I did tear up while watching the second episode of the season. All because Peggy danced with a Jason Wilkes and I thought of Winter Soldier when Cap/Steve goes to visit a bed-ridden Peggy and says:

Even now…*tears*…If you don’t tear up at that…then I don’t know.
They never got their dance.

Ah well…*sniffle*…must get back to editing so I can enjoy some Peggy Carter awesome tonight! Hope all is well with you all!
