I know it seemed like I dropped off the face of the earth for a little while there, but I promise I’m alive and kicking. In fact, I’m doubly alive, if one can be, because I am now housing another living being.
See what I mean? This also makes me doubly tired…and nauseated BUT SUPER HAPPY! Husband and I have been married for 6 1/2 years, and now we’ll have three children.
Here are our first two, Winston and Gabby:
They’re going to be great siblings.
And thanks to ya’ll for letting me gush a bit.
So, my March 31st deadline for the rough draft is coming up quickly, but as I explained in a past post, I’m going to have to alter that. What better time than the present? Answer: None that I know of.
I have about 19,920 words with which I am rough-draft happy, which means that I have approximately 70,080 words to go. I think I could conceivably move the rough draft completion date (Goal #5) to August 1, 2012, leaving extra room for preparations and vomiting. Yes, that’ll do.
This is going to move my yearly goals around a bit as well.
Goal #6-revised: Complete revisions by October 21st.
Goal #7-revised: Ready query letters and publisher packets by December 17th.
I hope these changes will stick, but I don’t know how Blue (what we call Baby because when we found out he/she was the size of a blueberry) and I will get along these next few months and beyond. Hopefully, swimmingly.
How about you guys? Are you on target? Falling a bit behind? Have some news to share?!
