So, that f/f novel that I wrote very quickly and sent to beta came back from first-round, got edited (and expanded to ~52K so yay that) and is with another beta. I'm hoping I'll get it back this week, or maybe Monday. I really want to get it turned around and subbed as soon as possible. Assuming it's worth subbing. I wrote the draft of the synopsis yesterday. ... I hate writing synopses. But you know that already. I hope the book is better than the synopsis, because, dude, seriously. You know what I mean?

Also, I just started to re-read my YA novel. I finally put it into a font that won't make your eyes bleed. (I guess it's been long enough since I finished the first draft that the main character is willing to let go on that point.) It's really good, IMO, and I don't even feel like I'm bragging because I don't feel like I wrote it. I just channeled the 13-year-old in my head. She's the one who wrote it; I just typed it and clarified a few small points. I think I'm going to ask the YA book club that I'm in to read it. I'd love to hear what they think, get their feedback on it. Then I have to decide whether to sub it somewhere or just self-pub through amazon.com. I really don't know.

Okay. That's it. Summer was yesterday. It was gorgeous. I look forward to it again next year. :-P
