*watches a tumbleweed roll by* Honest, I’m not dead. I know, it’s been a few days since I posted. Blame Devan. It’s definitely ALL his fault.
I’ve been concentrating fairly hard so far this week on editing Where The Ether Flows. I’m almost done Chapter 12 now. I checked and realize that I last reported being on Chapter 7, and that may not sound like that much, but it really is. Keep in mind that Chapter 11 was 26 pages, and Chapter 12 is 29. Ouch. Now I know how I added 35k to this book without adding more chapters. I may break those two up, but I’m not sure. I mean, a lot happens in them, but it seems kind of long to me. I’m still mulling that one. Still, this puts me halfway through Ether Flows at not even halfway through September, and that makes me happy.
I’m looking at the timelines now and, given how well things have been moving along, I’m starting to think that I *may* have time to do the first round of edits on All Stitched Up before November 1st. In a way, that would be good, because then I’d be starting the final book with the rest of the trilogy relatively fresh in my mind. Less time to forget it all. Trust me, with this many books on the go, my brain gets overloaded. Also, it would give me time away from the outline of Still They Watch, which I’ll probably need before the final review. I’ve been doing a bit of work on that outline, though not much because I’ve been busy working on Ether Flows.
And, of course, being in edit and outline mode seems to have brought the idea monster side of my brain out in full force. I’ve had two new ideas start kicking around in the last few days, plus another one that I didn’t write down fast enough. I know it was kickass, and that it involved a total reversal of an old cliche, but that’s all I have. I’m hoping it’ll come back, but I have to be honest. I already have so much to work on that there’s no way I’ll ever catch up anyway.
There really isn’t that much else to report. I’ve noticed that, unless I’m actually writing a new book, week days are a bit dull for me. I don’t have any big amounts of editing to report, and little of interest happens most of those days. I just thought I should check in and update before someone sent out a search party. I know some bloggers go much longer without posting, but I didn’t want anyone to worry.
