May is one of my favorite months. Not only is it beautiful and warm, but everything’s so green and lively! (April is hit-or-miss where I am, alas…!) Also May is when I try to organize my stuff, toss out things I no longer need, etc. Hero Material and I bought bunch of shelves and closet storage boxes. And I found the coolest thing called DropBox. It allows you to back up all your project files, etc. on their server. It also automatically syncs your files so no matter which computer you’re working on, you have the latest version of your work.
Perfect, huh? :)
Since my last update, I’ve been pretty busy. I found a project that I had totally forgotten about on my hard drive. I know, you guys are thinking, “How can you forget about your own project? Aren’t your stories like your babies or something?”
Alas, no. I don’t really consider my projects babies. If I did, I couldn’t be a writer since trying to sell babies for profit is a crime, and I do try to be a good law-abiding citizen. *grin*
Actually, I worked on the project all the way up to my wedding. But around that time we had lots of drama, including the bride getting ready to call off the wedding (not the groom’s fault), and so on…and in all the excitement the project kinda slipped my mind until I was going through my project folders last month to decide what to back up on DropBox.
Anyway, I revised it and sent it off to Agent, who told me she liked it. Yay me.
The mentor program with Kate is going very well. She’s been super encouraging, and I’ve learned so much from her already. I don’t know how she does everything though because she has insane deadlines this year. I’m in awe.
I may also have found a good crit partner whose interests match mine. She likes to read the kind of stuff I like to read and so on. And speaking of reading, if you haven’t done so, check out Larissa Ione‘s awesome Demonica series. She made my autobuy list with solid writing, hot heroes and strong heroines.
The rest of the month is going to be spent on reading and doing MayNoWriMo. I have some simple goals for the challenge and for the rest of the year. I plan to do a book giveaway in June, so stay tuned!
