I’m editing. Well, I have been all day. It’s tedious & exhausting. — I quit.
I’m kidding. I don’t quit. I just said it because I could. It was a lie. I apologize.
I have taken an editing break to map out book covers for a couple of hours. — I had a loose idea for the first book cover. We were sort of running with it, seeing where it was going. But I’m the most indecisive person in the world & I was just like, wait! Idk!
Book 1 is loosely titled, Coming Home. I say loosely because I’m indecisive, y’all.
I didn’t have a title when I wrote or finished it & thought it’d be hard to come up with one. And I literally typed my last sentence, got super excited, and then it hit me like a ton of bricks. — I had no idea what to title the thing. Not a clue.
I turned around to walk out the bedroom door and out of nowhere it just popped into my head. — Coming Home.
And I felt like it was sort of meant to be. Until I googled how many romances already have that title. — It’s a lot.
So I’ve been second guessing ever since. We’ll see what happens. I have a theme going with my titles. It’s another reason I feel the need to stick with it. — Anyhow, we’ll see.
Back to book covers! I had a loose idea, now I don’t know. I’m taking a quick step back to put serious thought into it. I didn’t before & it’s probably super important that I do. Yada yada.
Because it’s a series, they need to have some sort of the same vibe going on. — To clarify. It’s a series, but each novel is stand alone. — And there are at least, as of now, ten novels. — Get excited y’all! — But still. I need to plot this out better. And I’m working on that now.
This is all new and I’m learning as I go. I will nail this. I will. Give me time. Contrary to what I said earlier. I do not quit. I will not surrender. — And now I want to watch The Two Towers… solely for the Helm’s Deep battle. — Got myself all psyched up for war. 😀
Literally, I may pop it in and watch it. — While I map out book covers.
So, current agenda:
- Finish round 4 of edits on book 1 & send it back out for more feedback.
- Continue working on book 2 as I go. — Still roughly around 20,000 words.
- Figure out these darn book covers. So we can get the first one nailed down asap.
- Take a deep breath.
- Watch Lord of the Rings. — Because the last march of the Ents makes me feel like a champion & I could use a little of that right now. 😀
