Writing Life #10

Today is a good day, a celebratory day — today I finished the first draft of I Hunt Killers!

I had set a goal for myself of finishing this version of the book before I left town for ALA and I just barely made it. Now I have to get ready, pack, and head out of town for a few days. If you’re going to be at ALA, check my travel calendar and come see me!

Now I’m going to be on a hiatus for a little while. Having just finished first drafts for “The Monster” and I Hunt Killers, I would normally shift over to writing something else while I let my brain recover from those two books, then return to them later in the summer for revising.

But I’m in the odd position of having nothing immediate on the horizon! I’m still getting artwork from Colleen for the graphic novel, but that doesn’t occupy my day. So I’m going to take a little break instead. I’ve been working non-stop for the past few months and now it’s time to slow down, read a bunch of books, and then — in August — hop back into the fray.

I’ll see you then…assuming we don’t run into each other in real life first!
