Diving Off The Camp Dock

Yay, I’m done! Which means it’s also time to begin! I love the way things usually work like that in my life.

Actually, there are two things I’m done with. Double the pleasure, right?

Let’s see, I’ll start with the most important. I’M DONE WITH REVISION ON POSSESSION!!!!

Yup, done. Finito. I still have to format up the eARCs, but yay, I made it to that step! I’d like to thank my wonderful editor, Tamara Mataya, for her help in getting to this point. I’m telling you, she’s absolutely wonderful, both helpful and hilarious. It makes revisions easier when there’s encouragement and comments that make you just howl with laughter. And now Possession is one step closer to being in the hands of readers. If you haven’t already, this might be a good time to add Possession to your GoodReads To Be Read shelf, assuming you’re on GR. πŸ˜‰

*gulp* Wait, is that my cue to start getting nervous? Yes, I think it is.

What else am I done with? The outline for From Heights We Fall. Good timing, that, since today’s the first day of Camp NaNo. I did kind of need that in order to get started. Now I can, which is excellent.

And this, of course, leads me to that beginning part. I haven’t written yet today, but it’s still early, and I did need to get a few chores out of the way. Now I have to do a bit of prep work, then I can get writing. For those of you who know me on Twitter, yes I do intend to run sprints again as I did in April. I’ll be in #writeclub for that as before. I hope to see others there, whether you’re doing Camp or just working on something outside of that. We can write our hearts out together. I’m so ready to dive into this story.

Two final things to note:

First, the inaugural issue of Opening Line is now available, including my short story, Faery Wishes. It’s a free ezine, so please go ahead and download it. I’d love it if you all gave it a shot and would also like to hear any thoughts you might have on Faery Wishes.

Second, the secret project I was writing a different short story for is now underway. The Memory Project, hosted and organized by Carey Torgesen, is a brilliant idea that has taken on a life of its own as such things tend to. You can read the first and second story here. Mine will be up August 2nd, but please, do check them all out. If you’re on Twitter, you can follow the hashtag #TheMemoryProject to keep up with it all. Β Enjoy. I’m so very glad to have had the chance at being part of this. Thank you, Carey, for inviting me.

Okay, I’m going to toddle off now to get writing. But I do have something special for you guys tomorrow (July 2nd). Please check back here then. πŸ™‚

About Julie

I'm a writer and photographer. I always have something with me to take notes for ideas or writing projects I'm thinking about or have on the go. I also like to go around with my camera and take pictures of anything that strikes me as beautiful or evocative. I'm perpetually working on one story or another, while waiting for enough distance to judge the last one (or more). I'm always working on several projects at once, developing the next book, even as I'm editing the last. Beyond that, there's always plenty of scraps and twists of ideas rolling around in my head, eventually turning themselves into full blown stories.

    Yay for getting stuff done! I’ve written about 400 words so far today, which isn’t a lot but I also have a project for school that I’ve been trying to finish today. Stupid group projects.

    Anyway, I hope I’ll see you on Twitter later! I will definitely be writing when I get back from class.

    Oh, and I’m really excited to check our your story! That will probably also happen tonight, once I’ve stopped freaking out about this project. πŸ™‚

    Can’t wait to read it. It will be so exciting to read a book from a blogger friend.
