NOT WRITING, SNIFF…
Yeah...I have it. That restless and slightly grumpy feeling. Because I've finished my WIP and have gone through it once already with a revision. That's cool, but I have to figure out what to do while it's sitting and I spend some much-needed time away from it. I know I could start another book. And I just might. I can only read published books--my "research"--and catch up on normal (boring) everyday stuff for 2 or 3 weeks, and then I go nutso. I have to start writing something.
Thoughts and snippets of new dialogue and plot ARE wisping through my brain, so that's a good sign. I've been writing those thoughts down in a document. When I finish critiquing one more manuscript for someone else this week, I'll probably start developing my Shiny New Idea. Now that will be fun!
Also…I've been awarded the Super Sweet Blogger Award from Crystal Collier! Thanks very much, Crystal. Visit her fun blog HERE.
I'm supposed to answer some super sweet questions.
1. What is your favorite dessert? I really can't choose between chocolate chip cookies, banana bars with cream cheese frosting, chocolate mousse pie, or chocolate eclairs.
2. When do you like desserts most? I don't eat them that often, due to my egg/gluten/dairy allergies. But I prefer them for lunch so I have time to burn off the calories before bedtime.
3. Do you prefer cookies or cake? Depends on my mood--and the kind of cookies or cake. Some are simply more tempting than others!
Do you get grumpy or restless after you finish a novel or a writing project?
What do you DO during your interims, when you're in between projects?
What is your favorite dessert? How do you exercise to counteract the calories?
