The rumors of my death have been exaggerated. I'm still around, just nose deep in edits on WHITE SPIRIT. *Sings: "This is the book that never ends...never ends...never ends." Of course, I'm probably the only one who reads my blog, but I felt I should pop up anyway.

WS is moving very slowly. The edits are making it a better book, but I wonder if I'll ever be satisfied. I probably worry too much about this book, you know? But Tristan, McKenna, and the gang have been in my head for a good while now; I want to make them shine.

But this is the last edit for this round. After this, I'm going to start querying for an agent and see what happens.

In the meantime, my YA idea, MAYBERRY WITH MONSTERS, is kicking around in my head. Dani, Jared, and their group really want their time in the spotlight. I actually wrote a rough draft for this idea once, but it had no plot. So, I'm ripping apart the original idea and starting from scratch. So far, I love my version of witches and trolls. (No, these are not your typical lumbering, giant, stupid, ugly trolls. Think Alexander Skarsgard.)

So, that's what I've been doing. What have you guys been up to?

Yay, writing! I've been writing the world's most painful fanfic ever for a bigbang. I call it the world's most painful fanfic ever because it's the longest thing I've written in two years and I have real trouble getting a fic to this required word length anyway -- in this case, 20k -- so I'm all just like "Ahhh OMFG WHY DID I SIGN UP FOR THIS AGAIN?"

And then that little voice in my head reminds me that oh yeah, I love writing. But hoo boy will I be glad when this thing is done and posted in two hours.

I DID! It topped out at like 19,706 according to the AO3 website's word counting whatever, but the mods were cool with that so I didn't give a crap.

But I'm proud I finished it, so yay!

Is it possible for a writer to ever be completely satisfied with a book, even when it hits the 'complete' stage that we dream of? Congrats on knocking out edits, though! Those are rough.
