Well, I survived the weekend in North Hatley. We tweaked the show, worked in our new cast member (who is perfect in the role of Fifi) and I now have the French script by my bedside table. I'll be going over it every night until we perform in New York City in October!
Right after I got back from the Piggery, I began my first round of edits for Deathly Quiet, my short-story being published November 1st 2011 with MuseItUp.
My content editor is Christine I. Speakman and she's wonderful! With her guidance, she's helping me take Moira's story to another level. I couldn't be more pleased! Every comment she made, every suggestion she offered and every bit of advice she shared was right on the money. Applying the edits was a wonderful exercise that had me revisiting my research notes and referring to online sources to ensure all the details were correct for the time period. I'm loving how things are going!
After this next round, the story is sent to the Line editor. I have yet to meet her but I'm looking forward to working with her as well.
I wonder which artist MuseItUp will assign to design the cover art? I guess I'll know soon enough.
Right now, I'm in the mood for a little paranormal romance, so I'm be dusting off a file on my laptop entitled "The Guardian of Secrets". I've just submitted the first chapter to my online writing group. I'm looking forward to their critiques, they're always so helpful and a great way to kick-start my muse!
Hopefully, I'll have a novel-length story ready to submit in September!
