FICTION FRIDAY: Well, could you resist an awesome arc?

I took another freelance job.  Yep, in the middle of my revision.  Why?  Because the book description looked SO GOOD that I didn't want anyone else to get the chance to write the reading guide.  Plus, I've set a deadline for my revisions and I've promised myself I won't read ONE WORD of that tantalizing arc until I've sent my revised manuscript to my awesome editor.

BUT, the BIGGEST reason is...

I feel more normal and am more productive with less spare time and plenty of deadlines hanging over me.

Wishing all you fellow writer-maniacs a happily stressful weekend (if that's your scene)!

I agree. The busier I am, the more productive I am. Well, except for laundry.

JEM said...

Oooo, when can we know what book it was?

Stasia said...

Agreed about the laundry, Theresa.

JEM, the book is called NEVERMORE by Kelly Creagh. I love stories that connect with literary classics which was why I was drawn to this project.

Happy Friday! -Stasia
