Taking a deep breath...

Great news! I finished the massive re-write of the first half of Forsaken! It is such a relief to have it done! I have to say, I am SO much happier with the new stuff. I really did hate most of what I had before. It was overwhelming to start all over again with it but I’m so glad I decided to do it. And it was so nice to just copy and paste the last 30,000 words onto all the revisions. Guess I rewrote the first two thirds of it… lol. And it took me just under a month to do all the rewrites. Not too bad.  Now just 2 more rounds of editing and it will be FINISHED!

That being said, my brain is totally exhausted with editing and revisions! I went from not having worked on Forsaken in a few months to rewriting most of it! I think my brain needs a bit of a break from it for a few days. So, I’m going to take a step back from it till, um… Saturday I’m going to say. No, Monday. Jenni and I are having an epic all night writing marathon this Friday that I am so excited for! Hopefully I can get a ton of writing done in Eden! I’ve been itching to get back to it! I even had a fan add it to Goodreads, even though I’m not even done with the first draft. I think over 30 people have already added it to their TBR piles!

Next on my ramble: I’ve been having a LOT of different people asking for friend requests on Facebook. Most of them are book bloggers or something like that, others are just people who have found me. I think I’m going to make a new fan page on Facebook. My current one is too hard to find and it’s just for Branded specifically. I’d like to make one that is just for all my writing. I think that will make things easier and cleaner for me. I think it’s important to keep some separation with personal life and work related stuff (work = writing, couldn’t ask for anything better =) ). I’ll let everyone know when I get the new fan page up and running!

Lastly, the latest review for the Branded Tour! http://booksbytheirstory.blogspot.com/2010/11/branded-by-keary-taylor.html

Oh yeah! And I totally agree with you needing to separate your personal life from work (the best work ever ever! haha) I'm a fan...you know it :)
