I finished Chapter 7 of Raven and June today. Actually, I’m really glad I did. It’s all new material that will bridge “Raven for Lunch” and “Happy Fucking Birthday.”
That’s not why I’m happy about finishing it.
I’m happy because I woke up in a really bad mood today. I wasn’t happy with anyone about anything. I didn’t want to do anything, I didn’t want to see anyone, I didn’t want to read anything, or watch anything. I didn’t want to post here. I didn’t want to check my dashboard at Smashwords. I didn’t want to check my email. I didn’t want to go on Facebook.
I was a serious grump.
But I did all of those things anyway. Then I started working not just on Chapter 7, but on several previous chapters, just so I could add in a new character to help out June a bit in Chapter 7. In fact, some interesting things happen to June in Chapter 7 that will probably have to be followed up in Chapter 8, and possibly Chapter 9, before I can even get to converting “Happy Fucking Birthday” into chapters for the book!
I helped out June, and now I feel better. I accomplished something.
Oh, and oddly, Oops! has already sold as many copies as Waking Sleeping Beauty has. I’m not sure how I feel about that. We’ll have to see.
So, yeah, now I’m not such a grump. Yay!
