I usually take summer off from serious writing, probably because seventeen years of schooling has ingrained in me the sanctity of summer vacations. This year, though, I hit the actual revising part of HTRYN at the beginning of June. Yes, folks, all of what I’ve been doing since January(!) has been prep work for this. Now I’m working with a hard copy of my manuscript, marking it up, writing out new scenes and all that fun stuff. Can’t stop now!
So, no summer vacation for me this year (but the kids are getting one–barring light school in math and reading–and I’m off the hook for prepping lessons, yay!). The Plan is to be done with the revision by the end of August. To keep myself honest, I’ll be posting weekly progress updates and I expect you guys to poke and prod me if I get lazy, k?
What about you? What are your summer projects?
