I've reached the point in my revisions where it's become a raging obsession. I'm skipping meals, avoiding my family, and even dreaming about this project. I woke up at 5(!!!) this morning and couldn't go back to sleep because I was thinking about a certain scene, reworking it in my head. I finally just got out of bed so I could work on it.

The good news: This kind of obsessive behavior means I should be wrapping things up fairly quickly, so I can go back to doing normal things, like eating. And showering.

The bad news: You guys have no idea what I'm talking about because this isn't a project I've even told you about yet. (That should change soon, though!)

Also, I just got word that Denmark has joined The Body Finder ranks. So a huge shout out to Politiken, my new Danish publisher, for being brilliant enough to snatch up TBF! Tak (thank you), Denmark!!!

This is so funny because I was thinking about writing a post about this very thing this very morning!! I'm exactly the same way... when I'm really into it, I don't want to do ANYTHING else!

I just finished the final touches on my final draft, and now I'm feeling the post-book let-down. Not that I don't have plenty to do (like eating and showering), but I don't want to do them. I want to be in my manic-writing stage again.

Sigh. I'm even thinking of starting another book before school starts in January. Possible suicide?

Congrats on Denmark. The world keeps getting bigger for you!
