So, as anyone reading this journal knows, I've been working on the sequel for Long Gray Twilight. And it has been finished (at least in hand-written format) since Friday/Saturday (12/13). I had thought I'd get it typed up by Sunday, Monday at the latest. Guess what? That didn't happen - there were just more hand-written pages than I thought. But I did get the thing completely typed up Monday - now the delay is me and my proofing.

You see, I like to let the type version (especially when I did a hw version first) set for a couple days so then I can come back to it with fresh(er) eyes. I really planned (originally) to do that last night, but by then I knew I was going to have to get up earlier than usual today. So, I decided I'd wait until tonight to go through and proof - mainly because I'd like to do all my proofing/editing in one go and I just knew I wouldn't have time for that last night. Trouble is, I'm not sure I'll be able to get it all tonight - so it'll probably be Friday before it is ready to send for outside edits.

But, hey, at least I've finally got it all typed up. And if (big if) all goes well, maybe it'll be ready for posting soon.

Thankfully, I believe I'll also be able to get to work on Unexpected American Vacation again after I finish proofing and editing on Long Gray Twilight (the sequel), because the ideas for that one are starting to knock around my head again. Hopefully, after that I will FINALLY be able to go back to good old Blood Ties and do some rewrites there, but I'm almost scared to try and plan out THAT far ahead.
