Okay, I have three quick things I want to run past you.
1. If you haven't heard, Blogger finally implemented threaded comments last week. That means you can actually reply to comments now, without having to use a third-party like Disqus. (And the peasants rejoiced!)
Of course, there's a catch. For those of us who have (or, in my case, had) customized templates, it doesn't seem to work yet--which brings me to my second point.
2. I redesigned my blog (and its button)!
...Okay, I'll admit, I was going to revamp it this month anyway. I wanted SYAW to match my website and personal blog, so I gave it a nice woodgrain. The ability to have threaded comments? That was just a bonus.
3. Last, but not least, I want to talk about progress. Last week, I caught up with crits and started writing the sequel to STRENGTH. Can I just say how much I flippin' love the early stages? You get to do all the fun, exploratory writing, without worrying (too much) about structure. It's been too long since I've gotten to hang out with my characters in their world. I'm on cloud nine.
Unfortunately, as we approach February, that'll change. After I get my last couple of crits back on STRENGTH, I'll do another round of revisions, and then it'll be query time. (Why hello, harsh reality. I didn't see you lurking there.) So, what are you guys working on this month? Making any progress? :)
Oh, and are you going to take advantage of that new comment feature? So far, I love it.
Have a great week, guys! ♥
