Good morning, friends! I forgot to write a blog post over the weekend, so this is a bit of a late update. I’m really trying to get back to weekly posts.
Revision work is still going pretty slowly. Yes, I’m still procrastinating. Other things just seem to be more interesting! …Like scrolling through Twitter for the millionth time, or playing Candy Crush. Priorities.
Right now, draft 4 of the still-titled-In the Shadow of the Necropolis (for now, anyway) is at about 25,000 words. I’m still aiming for a final word count of 80,000 or so! Clearly, I didn’t make my original goal of querying by July 20, and I’m doubtful I’ll be able to start by the end of the month, but we’ll see.
That’s all for this week! Hopefully I’ll have more (and better) news to share next week 🙂
