What's Alex Up to Now
But I hope by the end of April (that's what month this is, right?), I'll have finished the rom-com contemporary m/m romance I'm working on. I've crossed the 50K mark and I'm happy with what I've got so far. Now it's just ripping out hearts and stomping on them. Um, lightly, I guess, since it's rom-com. And then making it all okay again.
My other current project is doing revisions on my trans cowboy story, which is going fairly well. My beta gave a lot of feedback suggesting some heavy additions, and I've been working them in. One fear I have is that the scenes will make the story drag instead of developing character and relationship like they're meant to, but I'm sure a re-read (in a different month) will clear that up. Again, I'm hoping to wrap up the revisions by the end of the month, which is going to mean putting my nose to the grindstone, but I've already added 4K-6K words? So it feels like good progress, even if it makes my end goal further away.
I want to say that's all I've got on the writing front, but last night, while mixing up tea flavors at Adagio, I suddenly wanted to write a story focused on a tea shop and then make teas for all the characters!
So now I'm sort of brainstorming that. I love the concept, but it's not a story that's jumping fully formed (or even vaguely shaped) from my head, AND I don't want to get distracted from my current story (plus all those stories I started and haven't finished yet). So it might end up coming to nothing. But we'll see!
For now, sexy motorcycle nerd...which desperate needs a title!
