Hee! I got the “start thinking about your blurb and excerpt” email from my editor at EC late last night. While I hate writing blurbs, I do like this end of the edit cycle that signals that the book is nearly final and ready to be turned in.
Of course, I need to work on Second Chances now and do those edits now. This is good, each time I go through an edit, it makes me a better writer. I just hate editing. Not as much as I hated filing or answering phones or having the cops have to escort me to my car because some crazy abusive ex of one of my clients had threatened to hurt me – but it’s hard to come back to a book once you finish it, especially when you’re writing something else in another subgenre. It just takes a bit of time to get back in the right headspace, to learn your characters again.
