A lot of thankless grunt work goes undone while I’m working on a novel. (Of course, there are times when writing itself feels like the thankless grunt work . . . but you’ll never hear me admit it. In fact, forget you ever read this parenthetical. Let’s move on.) I try to keep up with the basic maintenance tasks, really I do, but after a while, just getting the words out becomes such an effort that the rest kinda piles up.
Which is why I spent my first post-Apocalypse Pictures Presents week updating my submissions tracking database and getting manuscripts back into circulation. Got a bit more of that to do yet, and some other correspondence to take care of. A couple of rewrite projects loom on the horizon, both of which figure to be major challenges.
In other words, after this grunt work, I have different grunt work to do. (OK, forget I said that, too.)
No updates for Write Club.
