The past week has been busy in a good way.
I topped 50,000 words in my newest novel manuscript and won National Novel Writing Month for the second time (the result of the first time will actually be my second novel, coming out in September, and which has a shiny new title I can’t wait to share with you).
I finished up several PR items my publicist needed in order to spread the word about We Hope for Better Things.
I actually did my very first interview with a writer for a magazine!
I made much progress on an advance reader copy of The Patricide of George Benjamin Hill by James Charlesworth, another author who will debut in 2019.
I dusted. I actually dusted.
I decorated for Christmas.
I did some laundry (finally).
I prepped food for a church potluck.
I started my Advent reading, Wrapped in Grace by Deana Lynn Rogers.
And #Debut19Chat is running again on Twitter, with new questions and answers to get to know 2019 debut authors and their projects.
Now I sit back a moment and consider the reality that 2018 is racing to a close and I have a very busy year ahead of me, in which I have two books coming out (one in just a month!), two books in the process of writing and revising, and I’m directing my beloved WFWA writing retreat.
