I've been working on Jane, I swear. I've pretty much decided to choose a cadre of beta readers, some of whom have already been chosen and received what I had to date, and save the rest of the book for publication instead of posting it here. Sorry guys, but when it comes right down to it, the more new stuff is in the paper version, the more likely it will be that you fine people will buy it and stuff my pockets with lots of lovely royalty checks.
What? A girl can dream, can't she?
The latest scene still needs work, of course. For one, I have to remember that my character has knives in both hands before I have her picking something else up to run away. Especially something live.
I'm setting myself a goal, at least four pages a day of new writing, and at least three edited to what I consider suitable for others' eyes. It's a minimal goal, but more is always acceptable, and it ensures that I make some progress every day.
And the more progress I make the sooner I'll be collecting those lovely royalty checks, right? Right.
