- Ivolet's about to get queried and needs some fine-tuned writing that is getting closer and closer to the non-edited stage. Writing speed: slow and intense. Listening a lot to the inner editor as I prepare to condense the first three chapters into one so that the story stars "as close to the ending as possible."
- The Mistress Facade (my NaNoWriMo novel) is being written at the speed of light with no care in the world for repeated phrases and actions, poor grammar, or two-dimensional characters. First-person, (now) present-tense, the narrator is a bit shy and insecure. When I sit down to write this one, I'm on a timer to see how many words I can whiz out in 15 minutes.
- And then there's Aftertaste of Revenge (or something like that - title still in the works) that I began in October. I'm writing this one without hurry, but it tends to come pretty fast. The narrator is, believe it or not, pretty snarky, and I love her to death because we all know snark usually isn't my thing.
It's messing up my head. I can't switch from third-person princesses to first-person chamber maids to first-person murderers just like that. I'm not that amazing. ;)
But I want to write them all. Now. Here. To linger on one is to ignore the others, and I have an addiction to them all. Technically, Ivolet's editing is the most important, because she's soon to be queried. But then NaNoWriMo only has twenty-ish more days for Facade! And what about Revenge...it's the story that keeps having brilliant little things pop into my mind without warning. It should be at the bottom, but I don't want to leave it...
I guess we'll know at the end of November if I survive, eh?
