The past few weeks have been hectic what with illness in our house, an energetic 8 year old, all three of my kids currently bring homeschooled, and watching my nephew on top of all my regular responsibilities. I’m afraid that with all of that my NaNoproject has been neglected. I have about 4,000 words written.
My hope was to have the rough draft finished by the end of this month then go through it a few times so it can be submitted to publishers and agents by February. At this moment it is not looking like I am going to meet that self-imposed deadline. However I am not giving up on this project. It is something that I am truly enjoying writing when I do get a chance to write. I love the light-hearted nature this story currently has. My other novels all had a serious undertone. This is a fun Christmas romance. I love Christmas but have never given much thoughtto writing a Christmas story, other than my children’s book Christmas at the Zoo.
As soon as I get my new printer/scanner I can finish the illustrations on my next children’s book, The Ghost Tea. I had hope Quinlan would be interested in illustrating it but he hasn’t drawn much in over a year (unless he is drawing something for his girlfriend). So I enlistedyhe help of my mom. Her ghosts are (in my opinion) pretty adorable, which is perfect for this story which already has interest from Dingbat.
What projects are you currently working on?
