Day 22 is dragging.
I’ve only gotten in 454 words today. Maybe a spurt of inspiration will get me through the night, but I doubt it. I may just end up reading about swords tonight or another chunk of A Dance with Dragons. Or (gasp) I might watch some TV on NetFlix.
Either way, I’ve been afflicted by this overall malaise for a couple of days now, and I managed to stave it off yesterday by working on another concept for my book cover on my first book in between stints of writing. Here it is:
Keep in mind that the stock image will go – that’s just a place holder at the moment – and so is the text in the upper, left hand corner (I’ve been told it’s too cheesy – ah, I answer, but I am cheesy…). I’ve scheduled a commission with Sonia Verdu to do a proper illustration for the top half. Here’s a sample of her work:
I know, I know – I shouldn’t be spending money on a cover image before I even get the darn thing edited (shopping around for an editor – know of any?), but Sonia is busy for the next four months so I figured that’s enough time for me to figure out whether I’m really doing this or just fartin’ in the wind.
So…thanks for the distraction, now back to writing!
