Hello! Tonight (as usual) I have no idea what to blog about. But I do know that I owe you all something. So, let’s discuss my hesitation with self publishing.
Recently I realized just how freaking busy I am. Incase you all need a reminder as to why, here you go:
I am literally fighting to keep my eyes open as I type this post. But it will be posted!
After speaking with several people (my editor, Rosemi, mostly. She’s awesome) and seeing what my options are, I’m lost. I would absolutely love to self publish and say I did it on my own. But my worry is that I may not have enough time to dedicate to this project as well as bring you the best sequel possible. There is so much that goes into publishing a book. Also, I’ve spoken with several literary agents who’d love to check out my manuscript. This isn’t a shoe-in. It’s simply another option.
Finally, the stress of writing while having a more than full-time job has shown itself and I’m terrified. This will not stop the progression of work. Currently, I am at 4,300 words and plan to add to that number tonight. I just think I’ve realized that I can only do so much.
I’m listening to Celine Dion right now. Can you guess which song? Of course! My Heart Will Go On! This is such an emotional song, which is perfect because the beginning of the sequel is quite emotional. Death, lies, betrayal, and most of all, one super pissed off Sea Witch who plans to
eat kill everyone. While this song doesn’t necessarily help with the violence, it certainly conveys the level of emotion my protagonist must be dealing with.
Well, I hope you all have a great day and to my NaNoWriMo participants out there, ROCK ON!
All my love,
