Wednesday's Writing Update

Welcome to Wednesday's Writing Update! I actually have some great news today.

First off, Daily Bites of Flesh 2011 should be out soon. I don't have an exact release date, but I've seen the proof for it. My "Zombies Don't Exist" is in it.

I'm also hoping Oil and Water...And Other Things That Don't Mix comes out soon too. Last I heard, it should be out sometime in December. I really want to encourage people to buy this anthology when it comes out, since it helps the oil spill victims in the Gulf. They are still struggling down there. My story "Tradition" is in it.

Also, I am now officially a freelance proofreader with Passonate Writer Publishing (PWP). The senior editor said she will start sending me things to proofread next week, or by this weekend at the earliest. Thank you so much, Lisa, for telling me about this position!!

As for NaNoWriMo, I've slowed down a lot. I typically do when I come to the end of a novel. I'm on the last month in my outline, and I'm still hoping to finish the novel this month and having it be around 60,000 words. Right now, I'm at 38,495 words. By the end of the day, I need to be at 40,000 to keep up with the word count. I really plan to write a lot this weekend. *crosses fingers* I've also been updating and adding excerpts from my NaNoWriMo novel on Raven and the Writing Desk.

I reviewed Jeremy Bishop's TORMENT on my reviews blog yesterday. To read the review, click here.

Don't forget to check out the blog for my Flash Fictions Fridays and Promo Mondays.

That's all my main news so far. I hope everyone else's writing is going well!
