More Writing!

Well, just a short while ago this evening I completed the newest batch of edits to Princesses In SPACE!!! (not the actual title), which pretty much means that the book is in the final form in which editors will give it its Yay or Nay. (Except for, maybe, the first sentence. I think I'm going to tweak that a bit. I want it to be just perfect, and my gut tells me it ain't there yet.)

What's left? Formatting the manuscript for submission (which I've already done; that's easy), and writing a synopsis, for those publishers who take their submissions in the "Three chapters and a synopsis" format. Then we're on track to get the thing out there. It's time for this thing to fly. As a great pilot once said, "I am a leaf on the wind...watch how I soar!"

I honestly can't convey how much I have invested in this story. I'm all in on this one, folks. This is my "Go big or go home" project. After this? A week or so of not thinking about writing fiction...and then it's time to finish the NaNoWriMo book I started, and after that, time for the sequel, Princesses Still In SPACE!!! (not the actual title).

For right now, though, it's rum o'clock.

Writing: lubricating the brain

I have no doubt that you will start a bidding war with your story. Find a small yet heroic role for me in the movie, will ya?

Writing the synopsis is a bit of a challenge. And saying that writing the synopsis is a "bit of a challenge" is an understatement.

Good luck with it.

Wishing the very best for you with this. I can't wait to read Princesses (not to mention learn what the actual title is/will be)!

That reminds me. I need to buy more rum.
