Things are swinging into fast-forward gear over at Cobblestone Press as we get closer and closer to release day. There's more stuff for me to do, at least. Contacting people, trying to get some promotion done, writing articles and the like. I'm trying not to stalk the 'net for reviews because I know they're not out there yet, but it's hard to stop Googling myself sometimes.
I've been hard at work on other projects as well, and frankly, surprising myself with my out put. I may put up word count meters when I sit down and get to work on the real meat and bones of things, but a lot of what I'm doing right now is the icky set up stuff. Writing synopses so I know where I'm going, for instance. Yes, it's true, the days of being purely a pantser are behind me. I need a barebones framework to get through a story, or I flounder somewhere in the middle of what I'm writing. It's not fun to have to untangle things once you get that far in.
So a quick note and then I'm back at it. Zoom!
