OK, I just put together the magic and can see the end battle for Dictates. Took long enough, didn't it? That's what I get for writing without a template. However, the magic is AWESOME. Can't wait to put down those words. Then I only have to figure out how to get the characters to a HFN point in the story. (I may end it with Lewellen and Petra getting together...we'll see)
I also took Acts (first half that ends at the duel with Alina) to my camping vacation and dared to leave it on a table...quite nerve wracking, I have to admit. Feedback was good. Of the readers who took the time, there were some interesting suggestions. I left the book with a beta reader who will mark it up with red ink. I'm still awaiting her opinion.
I queried a publisher about the autism stories. I'm still waiting to hear back. He is one of my first choices for a dream publisher, because he does High Fantasy as well as Blog-to-Book. I don't expect much, but it is nice to hope and I'll hold out until my (first!) rejection notice comes in. Then I'll tape it to a bulletin board and throw darts at it every couple days. (maybe I'll make it into a drinking game and get a beer if I hit the publisher's name) Hmmm.
Still doing twitter. Still doing Facebook. Still overworked at work. It is still summer and I'm surrounded by injuries that follow weird patterns. Today's Soup Du Jour is eye injuries. A globe rupture and a different patient with facial fractures.
