Some news! Amazon managed to secure the government aid for the vaccines and your frustrated artist is finally getting vaccinated! 5th July, if all goes well. I’m not looking forward to going back to the office (my writing time will be turned into commute time) but I’ll be able to go hiking again! Can’t wait to find out how useless my muscles have become over time.
What else… Still working on Historia, there are I think 6 CGs left right now. Not much! And I’m done with the second revision of The Mind Drummer (YA horror novel I’m writing) and my trusty alpha-reader is now reading through it. I’ll probably start brainstorming something new in a moment because I can’t seem to force myself to edit out those 10k words from the novel I wanted to query (The Cleansed Ones). I want to try checking if there are some useless words I can get rid of easily, but I’m not sure if it’ll be enough. Maybe I can remove 6k and then round it down hahahahahahahaha…
I’ve finished reading Sailing to Sarantium and I liked the characters and prose but it was a slow book. We’ll see what the second volume will be like. I’m listening to Magic for Liars now (as I draw Historia’s CGs) and it’s also a pretty slow book. Not sure about it yet. I’m somewhere in the middle and not much has happened. I’m going through the fantasy books published in the last 2-3 years to find good comparison titles for my query, but no luck so far. Every fantasy book is about a chosen one realizing their potential when my main character just… punches people. She’s nothing special. She just happened to be in the middle of a really big mess… If you guys know of any fantasy books with a strong female protagonist and fast-paced action that got published in the last 2-3 years — let me know!
