Week one

We're in Nashville! Furniture: air mattress, a cardboard box, and (fingers crossed, very soon), some plastic chairs, courtesy of my mother.

My computer isn't hooked up yet. I'm on Rebecca's old P.C., and we still aren't sure where everything is going. I'm starting to get very, very antsy. I planned to start writing / editing / EVERYTHING on Tuesday, Wednesday at latest, but it's been almost a week since I've been able to write, and I don't like it. I feel lazy. I've given myself sixteen weeks to write before finding a job, and every day I don't feels like a waste.

But typing from the carpet is hell on the wrists.

I'm about to do some more posting on QueryTracker (feel like a total heel for accepting all of this criticism / advice and not critiquing on my own, but yeesh, it's not something I can help at the moment!) and, hopefully by the end of the week, I can start editing The Dead Rise again. I think the last 10% of The Cherubim will have to wait; I really want to have a near-finished book to circulate to agents.

  1. Glad you guys are getting settled! I checked out the pics on Rebecca's blog. Cute place!

    When I can't use a computer for one reason or another, I write longhand in spiral notebook, then type it later. Much slower, but at least gets something done. If I leave my book sit for too long, it's hard to get back into the groove.

    I haven't been on QT lately, but I'll pop over and see if your query is there later.

    Hope settling in goes nice and smooth for you and Rebecca.
