So the most wonderful thing happened yesterday. Mark got to call me! My husband is in the army, stationed outside the state for basic training. We got to talk on Monday and I was afraid we wouldn't talk again for a week. Of course after we talked on Monday I got news about my offer.
And I'd just sent him a letter too! So of course I started a new letter (I would've anyway) but knew we'd talk on Sunday probably before he got it. And I was dying to tell him! My husband, of course, has come along w/ me on this journey for the past few years. Well, turns out he won some relay competition yesterday, and they gave him a 30 minute phone call!!! I was so happy to tell him about the contract. He's excited. He's ready for me to be the next New York Time's bestseller. Alas! Who isn't?
Today I get to work on chapter 10 in Branca. There's a lot to change in here. I have half of it in Prince Charming (Dejan)'s POV. I don't want to use his POV anymore. First, b/c I have too many POV in this book. Yikes. I didn't really understand POV when I wrote it four years ago. I mean, I knew what it was, but I didn't know that you had to follow a format in books!
Anyway. Second, I chose him as a person to cut b/c he's not really that interesting. Interesting from the outside, yes. But too much like my main character to be interesting when we get in his head. At first his voice sounded just like Branca's. So I changed it. And now he sounds kind of stiff and boring. So I'm not giving him as much screen time.
That's my biggest project today. And watch the mail for the arrival of that contract.
