Vote For Me...

And I'll set you free.

Yeah. Like that'll happen. I just like the song.

And okay. I'm not being original as I've stolen this post from my other blog.

Writtenwyrd's having her 4th bloggaversary flash fiction contest and I entered. Appreciate it if you stop by and vote for your favorites (even if mine isn't one of them). Voting ends this Sunday.

I'm working heavily on two projects right now, gearing up for the SCBWI-L.A. Working Writer's Retreat.

Yesterday, I spent many hours taking two episodic manuscripts and squishing them together to create a complete story. It's getting there.

The issues:
The style of each manuscript is different
The focus on each manuscript is different

And yet they do share a strong common bond. Shoving two into one is forcing me to flesh them both out to smooth the transition. Looks like they'll actually reach a respectable book length as a single entity.

On the MG side, I'm plowing through a long rewrite. More than halfway through the manuscript, but the second half requires more work.

Feeling productive this week and that feels really good.
