Running, and Writing, and Covers Oh My!

I have been struggling with the editing of the third book of my Darklands trilogy. I have decided what I need is a deadline. So, I have given myself until the end of this month to get it done. I want Sheri to be able to make her final pass through it and have it published by mid-April or sooner.

I have also decided it is time for me to get writing again. I have several novels bubbling up inside of me and I am going to have to release the Kraken (I know this made no sense but I have always wanted to write it in a blog). Originally, I had planned to edit Incarnators and Dragonroot back to back. This is not going to happen. I need to write a novel and then I will edit my next book. Kind of nice having a book ready to edit.

Speaking of Dragonroot, I have its cover in hand. I really like it but I am not ready to share yet. I will let it into the wild when I actually start the final edit. I feel like I have been treading water a little on the writing side lately. It has given me a chance to read a lot of books though and I have to admit I really needed that. Now it is time to get busy again (including this blog which I have been somewhat neglectful of lately).

On a completely different note I have broken my elliptical machine. I worked that damn thing to death. Luckily, I have an extended warranty on it so it will get repaired as soon as the parts get here. This has forced me to venture outside and start running again.

I have said it before but I really love to run. I know this makes me even weirder in some of your eyes but running is a great thinking time for me. It doesn’t really surprise me that I am all jacked up to write after spending the whole week running. I was a little worried at first because I have been losing weight entirely on the elliptical, but everything went great. The elliptical has actually improved my stregth and I have run a 5K everyday with little problem (considering I have been sick I am really happy with that).

My weight is almost all the way back to where I want it to be. It has come off slow but that was always the plan. Slow and steady so that I knew I could keep it off. I have about an inch on my waist left to go. I am also only about 7 pounds away from the weight goal I set. So far I have lost 30 pounds and this time I plan on keeping it off. I am in a terrible spot with my clothes though. I don’t fit into my final goal pants and the ones I am wearing are starting to get clown-like loose. I have had to buy smaller sizes as I went down but there is no more smaller sizes. I hope I get there soon. Looking like a clown accidentally isn’t any fun. Now on purpose, that is a whole different story.
