What's the old adage or saying that "if you think you're crazy you're not, because only crazy people think they're sane" - or something like that...
Well today I have dubbed myself crazy. Why? Because as usual I've bitten off too much and am determined to get it all done.
I'm writing two books at one time, something I've tried before and failed at miserably. With one book I'm writing 2500 words a day in order to have it done by the 2nd week in August and the other book, I'm shooting for a mere 1,000 words a day to have it done at the same time, or earlier.
Tonight I got confused and thought Iphi, in her own book, was actually the other character, Amaya, in the other book but they're so very different.
So there you have it - undeniable proof that I am insane for writing 2 books in the same world at the same time.
I got the loveliest email from a reader earlier that's going to spur it's own blog post or two. In particular she asked why Aurelia is the way she is and so I'm going to address that in another post. I'm so glad she asked too because Aurelia has a great back story. Originally she was going to have her own book but then she went ahead and did something unexpected and ruined that plan.
OK - here I am procrastinating because I don't want to write my other 1,000 words. I'm putting myself back to work now so I can sleep soon - that is if the nightmare upstairs neighbor *ever* shuts up! And if she doesn't - she's getting a book too but that one will either be horror, dystopian or a murder "mystery" ;)
