Revisions have begun for Eye of Heaven. First draft clocks in at 116,000 words, but when I’m done, it may go over 120,000. There’s fat to trim, but added details to pour in, and I tend to do more rather than less. And while this is going on, there are other things to write. A proposal that I’ve been dying to finish, and a new fantasy series that I’m excited about. Time, time, time. I need to manage my time.
Remember—for all of you who want to be writers or who are writers or who want to do this professionally forever and ever—it is way too easy to look and feel busy while checking your email or surfing the net. But it’s a lie! A lie! You’re just wasting time, putting off the words. Actually, as addicted as I am to the internet, sometimes I think I would be better off without it. I didn’t have my own personal modem until I was eighteen, and man, up until that time I read and wrote like a maniac. I think I need to go back to that.
Next week I head to San Diego for Comic Con. If any of you plan on attending, I’ll be signing books at 12:15 on Saturday.
