Coming Up

I have three awesome writers joining me here in the first week of December. I'm very excited to have all of them on my blog. So make sure to come back and check them out!

Until then, I will probably not be around much. (Well, here anyway. I still plan to be visiting other blogs as much as I can.)

I've gotten a lot of revising done on two different novellas and I'm feeling pretty good about where I am.

One of them is sent out to betas right now and I'm hoping to have the other one ready for that soon. One thing I've learned, I overuse the word 'that' a LOT. But, after a search and find, I have killed many, and plenty of wases, too. Next to go is 'just.'

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. (Or, for those of you across the pond, a great weekend.) :)

  1. Two manuscripts! That's amazing. I can't imagine working on more than one at a time, so you blow me out of the water.

  7. Ha, I overuse "that" a lot too! I didn't realise until I let Cassie Mae have a look at my work and found a million strikethroughs in the document LOL!

    Hope all goes well with the revisions!

  8. I have to do searches on the same words. And my people nod a lot...they probably have neck cramps by the end of the story.

  15. I abuse "that" and "just" a lot, too. I try not to, but it's so hard not to use those words sometimes!

    And wow, you've been revising two different novellas? Go you! I'm always impressed by people who can multitask like that. :)

  16. 'That' is a big over used word. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!!!
