It used to be so easy. A quick web search, some clicking and verifying, and BAM!–tweets auto-posted to my Facebook profile or page, and these blog posts auto-posted to my Facebook page.
I guess it’s not so easy anymore. For one thing, Facebook’s gotten a tad full of itself and won’t allow cross-posting with Twitter now. A year ago I could, and I turned off the function a while back because I wasn’t getting much traction with it. I’d like to try it again, but……no go. Looks like I’ll just have to deal with manually copy/pasting the links for the blog posts, and I’ll just have to figure out how I want to post excerpts from my works-in-progress and finished works to my Facebook page.
Competition is great for some things, but sometimes it sucks.
Revisions have been stalled as I’ve kinda been foggy lately, but I have the whole afternoon off today–plus tomorrow morning–so I think I should be able to knock them out soon. I’m over halfway done, so it’s just a matter of sitting down at the laptop and focusing. I’ve actually got roughly thirty pages left to revise, so I’m closer than I thought I was. Cool.
Then, of course, it’s back to the publisher for the next round of edits. I’m a little disappointed in how long the first round of edits took to come back, but my publisher is growing, and with that growth comes an influx of manuscripts that need work. I can’t expect them to be as speedy as they were when they only had a handful of books to edit. As soon as I’m done with these revisions (and with the multitude of embroidery projects I have) I’ll have to reread Book 3’s draft and remind myself of where I was at and what changes I wanted to make. I know, I know, most people say to knock out the first draft in its entirety first before revising, but I’ve had an epiphany of where the story needs to go, and it’s not where it was going before.
I’ll also have to do a bit of research for Book 3’s new direction. There’s a plot thread I want to use that I have no experience with. I want to make it as authentic as I can–for a sci-fi novel, that is.
