I haven't checked the Internet for hours! What am I missing?
2. In other news, I'm 20k into the overhaul of an old novel, House of a Thousand Dolls. Hooray! I kept the bare bones of the plot, and most of the characters, but I'm changing everything else. I want to get a good chunk of it done before August because...
3. August is going to be the Month of Juggling Projects. I've got to do at least one more polish (if not two) on my second YA book before it hits the submission stage and my middle-grade first draft will have finished marinating by then and need some serious second draft work.
Not to mention the project above, which I want to keep working on as well. Whew!
4. And since I clearly don't have enough to do, I'm thinking about doing a series of posts on plot, similar to the ones I did on character a while back. Anyone else think that would be a good idea?
5. Finally, writer, long-time blogger, and just generally nice person Erica Orloff could use a laugh this week. If you have anything amusing or interesting you can share with her, please drop it off in this comment thread. Thank you!
