My little family had such a nice couple of days on the Oregon coast last weekend. The weather was amazing. Camping at the coast in May would usually mean at least one rain storm and in general cold and unpredictable weather, which is why we stayed in a yurt (a semi-permanent structure that keeps out all weather and comes complete with electricity and heat). Not this time. It was gorgeous, the entire trip. Mid-to-upper seventies. And the campground was almost empty, so we had whole stretches of beach and dune to ourselves. We camped in an area pretty far south, near Florence, Oregon. It happens that both my husband and I spent significant time around there as kids, so the reminiscing was really fun. I’ll quit going on about it, because I know I’m making you jealous. 🙂
I’ve made significant progress with revisions to Flight, the third Children of the Sidhe novella and the next book I’ll release. I’ll finish my revisions this weekend come hell or high water. (Please, no hell or high water!) I’m loving the book more now than when I first wrote it. Yay!
In the coming week I plan to get back to writing the first draft of Chaos Calling, the second book in my Foulweather Twins series. I want to finish the last 35k of that draft during this round. That means that starting Sunday, my word count goal is 1,000 words a day. I might be able to get away with shorter word counts on my long commute days Mondays and Wednesdays, but I can’t skip writing all together those days like I often do. I just have too many projects waiting, and Chaos Calling is too great a book to just let it collect dust as I have been known to do in the past. Darn time passing. Don’t know what’s up with that. Always surprises me. 🙂
Speaking of…I also need to find time to make the changes I need to the print version of Queen Witch, and get that in progress again.
Have a great week ROWers and other friends!
