It's odd, finally being able to talk about my good news in public! Especially after sitting on it for a few weeks. Can you imagine having to wait months? Not me. I would have burst at the seams.
All day Friday, I was literally glowing. It was so exciting sharing my news with the people and communities I've been involved with for years. I think I shouted the news from every available rooftop. Everyone had such kind words!
Now that the excitement has died down (only a sliver!), it's time to buckle down on the real work. Julie said we might start revisions in May, but in the meantime, I have lots of other things to work on. New Secret Project, which I LOVE. I'm also putting together character worksheets and background stories for the Altered characters. So fun getting inside the secondary characters' heads. The boys are by far the hardest. Because, ya know, I'm not a boy.
Fellow writers, how much writing do you do for the behind-the-scenes stuff?
