Maybe, Possibly, In the Can

Stylish picture, just because
I don't know what that means but I heard the Woman say it last night. She said it as she hit SEND on an email sending the next book to the editor. That doesn't mean it's 100% done, but it's done enough to show it to the person who will say how awful it is. It's also done enough to start the graphics train moving, finding cover art and picking a spiffy font, and done enough to try to figure out what the blurb will be.

I leave that part to the Woman, and she hates it. She says if she could condense something to a paragraph, she wouldn't be writing book-length things.

While we're waiting on the editor, we're plowing ahead into book three. We have the story, some notes (which will be expanded) and know what's going to happen. It's just the process of getting it written. Sure, no biggie, right?

I think the rest of this month will be notes and stuff, and the actual writing will start in November. The Woman is thinking about doing NaNoWriMo with it this year, even though she loses a week to the 3 Day Boobie Walk. We can write enough words in a day to cover that, I think. It works out to around 2700 a day for three weeks, and it's not unusual for us to get 5,000+.

Now, when she works alone, the Woman is lucky to hit 1000. She needs me. But I bet you anything, at the end of November when we're way over 50,000 words, she keeps the winner's certificate.

Wow! You look great as "kitty art" (for lack of a better description). I am so excited about the book!

Books are nice. But that isn't why TBT started reading your blog. It wasn't all about books then.

Max, we're thrilled about the book, and can't wait for it to get past next stages!

Sweetie, I love that you're so excited about your work and your books, and that you want to share that with us. I can't wait for the next one!

Max, You are looking good there. Did you fix that up yourself? I mean, we kitties have to learn to do things for ourselves, what with these useless and unhelpful Humans. Phfft.
