Howdy everyone. I hope you all had a great long weekend... well, it was a long weekend if you were a resident of the U.S. of A. While I had mine the week before, I was spending the past few days visiting my relatives 75 miles (or 120 kilometres, for the metric followers) away. Here's what's been going on as of late:
The Write Stuff: As most people know, I am currently in the midst of the July edition of Camp NaNoWriMo. While it has been tough to get the ambition to write some days due to the heat, I have trudged on. At the time of writing this update I have scribed 12,243 words of the necessary 50,000, or 24.486% complete if you're interested in percentiles. My story is in the seventh chapter and the scene has my MC out on a coffee date with her hunky love interest. I don't want to give too much away, so you're going to have to wait until its released... whenever that may be.
Every Day I'm Editing: Speaking about releases, we are currently one week away from the reveal for the spanking new cover for my first novel, Scarlet Siege. Which brings me to some... well, I'm not sure if one would call it unfortunate news... on the editing front. I've heard back from one of my beta readers, and she's made some suggestions for my manuscript. Like my still M.I.A. hired editor, the beta has suggested I need to tweak my sentence structure a bit. Admittedly, English was never my best subject in high school. I liked to write, but my form was not the most polished. This means I will resume re-editing "Siege" (when I get a free moment from writing my current project; squeezed in among the two suggested meditation sessions a day my teacher for a class I'm currently taking on Thursday nights recommended. Oy!) Needless to say, I'm going to be busy for the next while.
Reading is Fun-damental: Alas, with everything going on, my reading has been put on hiatus. It is a shame because I have a few books on my "To Be Read" list I want to tackle. Sometimes, there's not enough hours in the day, and coffee can only prolong you for so long before the system crashes.
That's all for this week's belated edition of The Division Report. I'll return in a few days with the latest progress report on The Prairie Fire Within. Try to stay cool, everyone.
