Today's the first day of the rest of my...summer? Ha! Yep, Zoe graduated kindergarten yesterday, and while my thoughts on that subject I'll save for another day, it has put into sharp focus the fact that my summer is here. Less time to work, more time to play. Which is all well and good, but I still have plans. Big plans. I want to write a book in my *spare* time, but Zoe and I are currently in debate about which book I want to write. She thinks I should finish a kid's horror novel I've been mucking with for a while; I'd like to finally tackle that adult Holocaust-themed magic realism thing that won't leave me alone. I'm not sure who's going to win, but either way I can't wait to start writing.
That'll begin next week....I'm taking today and tomorrow off.
The other decision I have to make is this: I've got a book, called JO, and I'm thinking of releasing it this summer. I love it. Charles loves it. My brother loves it.
I'm just terrified of that thing called "formatting digital files." The learning curve would be steep and intimidating, so I'd like to feel like it'll be worth it in the end.
Anyway, I figured I'd crowd source a bit now...and maybe build up some momentum that'll carry me through publishing this beast. So here's the first chapter of JO. I'd love to know what you think!
