It's been a while since I've posted, primarily because I have been taking a break from my novel altogether — I didn't even do the research I'd planned to do in December. It worked out well, though, as I was quite busy in December. Plus, I was able to get caught up a bit on my reading, which was very nice.
With the start of the new year, though, it's time to get back to business. This week was a bit disorganized as I got back to my normal schedule, but next week I plan to get started on the research and planning for the second novel — and maybe a few things to add to the first novel as I revise, too. Revisions have been pushed back a few weeks. I'll consider February 1st my targeted start date.
I'll also be posting to this blog more frequently. My plan is to include two types of posts: writerly posts, with information on word counts, the writing process, etc., and posts on the actual subject matter, i.e., vampires and the 1920s.
But for now, let's take a moment to admire 2012, stretched out before us: a blank slate, full of possibility!
Happy New Year!
