Well, I’m happy to say I’ve finished another “short” story. Ended up with nearly 21K words, but I haven’t started editing yet, so I’m sure it’ll change. I like it a lot. So, that leaves me with a growing pile of finished manuscripts that need editing. Maybe I should concentrate on them instead of writing something new.
But you know me, always have to have a dozen irons in the fire. I’ve started a new story and I’m not sure who’ll be my models are going to be. I like to have models when I write. It helps to have a solid idea in my own head as to what my characters-at least my main characters will look like. Which leads me to my question–
Maybe I just watched too much The Office yesterday.
Well, last Saturday my DS competed in a game called Hit Pitch and Run at the local rec center. I love my son, he’s the best, but an athlete he’s not. Still, he tried his hardest and that’s what counts. The overall winner in each age group (we thought) would move up to the state level (this is a nationally sponsored competition that will eventually end up with the winners of each group competing at Yankee stadium (I think a Red Sox jersey would be in order). Well, DS got a 2nd place overall out of 2 people (though he did win the Hit portion). Yesterday I got an email saying that he qualified to go on to the next level, which is the state level.
So, he has a week to practice. He’s pretty excited though. Who’d have thought.
Okay, time to squeeze a little writing into my morning.
