Today is an especially exciting day in our house, primarily because I completed my first draft of Like You Want It yesterday! So, in my world, today is a much needed break from the aggressive amount of writing I’ve been doing for the past few weeks.
This week is going to find me 1) doing my first draft review, 2) submitting the first draft to my beta reader, 3) creating my blurb, 4) finalizing my book cover, and 5) beginning to do promotional information!
I think as a writer, we often focus so much on writing that first draft and all of the ups and downs that come with it. And then once we’re done, we are ready to take a nap. But the work is still going! There is still so much to do!
On an unrelated note, I have to go get a cavity sorted out today. I was finally smart enough to schedule it for the afternoon instead of the morning. Having a partially numb mouth makes me completely useless and groggy for the rest of the day, so hopefully I’ll still be able to get my work done.
Lastly, this week is our next book club meeting on my street! We’ve been reading The Woman in the Window and I’m so excited to chat about this baby with the ladies on my block! I’m going to need to bring a suggestion for a new book to read. Any recommendations?
Alright, that’s it from me! Have a wonderful week.
