Just read this book and #ROW80 update

Hi.  Yeah, so I said I was only going to update on Sunday.  Well, I found some things to chat about on Wednesday, so here I be.

Work on Glow is going great.  I wrote 1,745 words yesterday and just about finished chapter 9.  I thought I was done with it, but then I decided to add one more little scene, which I’ll do this afternoon.  I gotta say, this loose outline thing is pretty awesome.  I just read the summary and write the chapter.  Of course new things come up, but I’m finding that it’s not screwing up my outline too much.  Hmm.  Is there such thing as a paplotanster?

I finished one of the new essays for the essay book on Monday and will try to start another one today. Looks like I’m going to need more new essays than I thought because I’ve combined several of the older ones.  That’s cool.  They’re fun to write. I get way more writing done on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, so I’ve been saving Glow for those days and working on other stuff on MWF.  I’ve been taking Sunday off and that’s nice.

I was chatting with another writer on Goodreads about how neither of us thought we were very good at writing reviews.  Maybe I don’t try hard enough or I just want to write from a purely emotional standpoint for once?  I don’t know.  I suck at it.  Our joke was that we wished we could write: Just read the damn book already.

And that book would be Tommy Nightmare by JL Bryan.  I’m not quite done with it, but it’s even better than Jenny Pox (which is 99 cents right now) and I loved Jenny.  These books get classified as YA (I’m guilty) but they aren’t really.  The characters are older teens/early 20’s.  Just read it.  It’s good.  I don’t lie about these things.

Happy Wednesday!

  1. Stacey, maybe one of these days I’ll actually do a loose outline. LOL. I’m not there yet. Kait and Susan cringe. :0)

    It sounds like you’re really on a writing roll. 1745? Yay!

    I really, really loved Jenny Pox. So I’m definitely going to read Tommy Nightmare. Jeff is a great writer, isn’t he?

  2. Oh, aren’t you sweet, Stacey? 🙂 I don’t care if people want to call it YA paranormal, PNR, contemporary or horror…as long as they read it. 🙂

    Congratulations on your progress on Glow! I wish I were writing something right now, but instead I’m rushing to get all the stuff done around the house before the baby’s born–all the stuff I put off while blog touring and writing Tommy. Now it’s all coming back to haunt me…

  3. I’m not going to tell you to do an outline because I think people telling me to do an outline made me not do an outline for a long time. 🙂

    You’re gonna love Tommy Nightmare. If I didn’t have to take care of my kids I would have finished it by now. Ha!
