1. I signed my first contract with an publishing house!
The day I learned my book Devonna was going to get published was just unreal.
I’m currently in the process of editing a book AND writing a completly different novel in a different language and I’m trying not to go absolutely crazy so I’ve been looking for tips online on how to maintain mental stability while doing that.
But I did manage to compile a few editing tips that are totally helping me keep my sh*t together!
I DID IT! I wrote a book in a month! More specifically, I wrote 40 000 additional words to an existing 35 000-word YA dystopian WIP I had, resulting in a 75K first draft.
As you may know, my goal for September is to finish my WIP (a YA dystopian/fantasy). That represents about 40K words to reach a first draft of approximately 75K.
And now I’m sharing the numbers of the second part of the month, aka THE FREAKING ROLLER COASTER PART BUT IT’S OVER NOW, MR. FRODO.
As you may know, my book Devonna is coming out in October and I thought I’d share a little bit about how the publishing process is going so far in my journey. What the publishing house (Evernight Teen) required of me and stuff like that.
I just figured this is the kind of post I would’ve liked to read a couple of months back to know what to expect, because right now I live in a bubble of unexpected emails and requests and it is MAKING ME REALLY ANXIOUS.
But somehow, I manage. (Because I must manage.) (And, yes, this is a The Office reference because The Office is life.)
