I’m still working on the second draft at a snail-sloth pace (Thanks for the new word, Sarah!), but progress is being made. So that’s a plus. Thanks for all the positivity sent my way last week – it certainly helped! I’m not sure if I mentioned it before, but this will be a duology, a new feat for me. It’s not something I planned, but the characters let me know their story wasn’t finished, and with YA books, it’s generally frowned upon to have a word count much higher than 80K.
I can’t believe I forgot to mention this last week, but have you guys ever tried Escape Rooms? My oldest son and his girlfriend were here a couple of weeks ago, talking about how they did one with friends and how much fun it was. I knew there were a few facilities where we lived, so the four of us (hubby is included) scheduled a room. Our mistake was choosing a scenario (Murder Hotel) with an 8 out of 10 difficulty level. The first ten minutes convinced us we were the stupidest people on the face of the planet – then we started putting clues together. We had to ask for help a couple of times, and if we’d only had a couple more minutes, we would have escaped. It was loads of fun, and we plan to give it another try the next time they’re in town.
You guys know I’m a Stephen King fan. Did you know they’re doing a remake of Pet Sematary? It’s been a while since I’ve seen a good horror movie. Enjoy the trailer.
