Draft and Peeky Sneak

So I finished a draft of The Osteomancer’s Son (a novel) last week, and then gave it a read-through/tweaking pass, and then sent it off to my agent for feedback, and while I’m waiting for that I’ll be starting another draft so as to make it’s the best book I can make it before my December deadline.

What did I do to celebrate completing a draft? I ate wings. People who’ve known me for a while may assume that I eat wings all the time, as I used to eat wings frequently and blogged about wings a lot. But anymore, I have wings a few times a year, so eating wings is a Big Deal for me. I also celebrated by cleaning the bathroom ceiling, which I do less often than I eat wings.

Anyway, in addition to eating wings this weekend and cleaning the bathroom ceiling this morning, I also worked on a character design for a project that’s not so much a sekrit project as it is one I don’t feel like talking about yet. It’s not under contract or anything. Just something slowly taking shape in my notebook. Here’s a very sneaky peek:

    Must be a regional thing?

    Yay for revisions, agent comments, and not-so-secret projects!!

      It might be more an illiterate thing than a regional thing, but I’m sticking with it.
