So some of you might remember this post where I declared that February would be the month that I Got Stuff Done(!). Namely revisions on my WIP Whisper. Such big plans I had. Like finishing revisions, working on my query and synopsis, maybe even wrapping up my other WIP. Two hours after my Focus February post, my grandma died. What followed was a month of physical and emotional exhaustion taking care of my grandma's stuff. It's been difficult and what free time I did have I was just too drained to revise.
But I did manage to do a few things. I posted my opening on Secret Agent and got some great feedback. And this week I posted a section of dialogue over at Miss Snark's First Victim's Talkin' Heads crit roundup. My entry is (#48) here if you're interested. I've already gotten some great feedback and done some revising again. "Mutual Attraction" is not really a good description for what's going on in that scene but I was in a time crunch and couldn't think of anything better. Still, it's one of my favorite scenes in the book. With one of my favorite characters.
Anyhoo. I've declared February a loss as far as revisions go, but I'm all set for some of my own personal March Madness! I have to get my WIP revised because the one good thing that came out of my time away from writing is a very Shiny New Idea that I really really want to start working on. It's so different from anything else I've written and I can't wait to get started on it, but I won't let myself until I finish my WIP revisions and get it out to my Crit group.
I'm on a mission in March to Get Stuff Done(!) for real. And maybe have a contest or two. What about you? Do you have any March Madness goals?
