Waiting and Giveaway Reminder

August 23, 2010

If you follow me on Twitter (@LifeinFiction), then you might know that my critique partner has my manuscript and is currently going through it with their red pen in hand. Well, I’m assuming it’s red. Either way, I’m extremely nervous. We’ve critiqued each other’s writing before, but never have I given them a finished draft to read. So far, they’ve told me they’re absorbed in it and enjoying it. That’s good, right? 🙂

Anyway, while they’re working their way through my MS, I’ve been working on a new project. It’s going okay so far, but I frequently send my crit partner frantic emails asking for feedback because I’m certain something is wrong with what I just wrote. I’m a very insecure, nervous, and doubtful writer, and I hope I can get to the point where I trust myself. 

I’ve also been working on a new song inspired by Lauren Oliver’s upcoming novel, Delirium. I have a copy of it, but have yet to read it, so the song is inspired by the concept of the story. It took me a while to write the song, but I finally finished it the other day.

*Please don’t forget that today until midnight (12:00 EST) is the last day to enter my ARC + A Little Swag giveaway. To enter, follow the link found under my header.*

Well, that’s all for now and I should be posting a couple of reviews in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for those. 🙂 I hope you all are doing well!
