Edit My Face Off

It appears that I have already broken my own blog rules by not posting for an entire week.

Nice, Swenson, real nice. 
I was imprisoned by an evil sapling?

No, no evil sapling to blame. It was writing that kept me from blogging. I have been committed to keeping my Oct 1 deadline to be Done Done with Children of Utrøst.  And boy-howdy is my work cut out for me.

The ending is a big hairy mess which needs rewriting. My villain needs a good dose of evil juice, which is currently bubbling on the back burner, still needs a pinch of unicorn blood. And somehow I must trim my word count so it looks good in a bikini. I am all for a good Brazilian, but I think I've already done all the major clearing and will have to get out the tweezers. (Classy-no?)

Can all this be done by 10/1/11?  Without resulting in this?

Not That Uncommon.

You'll be the first to know.

A week late.

Not blogging in order to finish a novel is noble and wise. Best wishes!

Kate Swenson said...

Thanks ladies!

I need to follow your example and get off the interwebz and go finish my novel. Seriously! That's some good advice.

Hey! That's my deadline, too! I'm a chapter away from being done, but the ending is such a mess that I've got to clean it up before I'll feel good about saying, "DONE."

Good luck! I'll be checking back to congratulate you in T-Minus ten days :)
