Now that it's over...

It's back to work! Well, back to job number one, the writing career. :) I mentioned back on my Facebook author page that I felt disconnected from book four, SACRED SISTERS, ever since I started job number two. So I printed out what I had so far and edited with my trusty red Sharpie pen. I finished transferring everything on Monday, yay! The first draft of SACRED SISTERS now sits at 32,528 words and 84 pages. I'll get back to writing once I get my set of days off from job number two (I pray that the days off continue to be in a row...I feel less burned out that way and can actually get a lot more work done).

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Changes have been happening for me lately. One major change has been the pick up of a part time job! This will help build my book publishing funds (MISTRESS OF BLACKWEN may get published this year after all!), including the investment of book booths for future Comic Cons. I am really, REALLY excited for when I'll cosplay Artemis Ravenwing for Denver Comic Con in May.  And Sheena. And Link (again).

Don't worry: writing is still considered my first job, my career. Unfortunately, I have not been able to contribute much to the creation of SACRED SISTERS lately, but once I finally have a routine down with job #2, I will be writing a ton again. I'll most likely escape for the days off I'd get and take my notebooks, Sharpies, iPod and the trusty ol' laptop to give this series the attention it deserves. After all, a Mel who can't write is a depressed Mel. Plus, I don't want to make you guy…
