Monday has that tendency. I get to thinking about everything I need to do for the week (appt in Concord, dentist, shopping, laundry, etc) and it wears me out before it really starts. That’s not even taking into account the list of things I need to get for my son to go on his first … More IT’S MONDAY, OF COURSE I’M FRUSTRATED!
I need some input. I’m working on a manuscript that has gone through an editor at a publishing company. She pointed out some things that I’m going to fix (my heroine was too perfect, and I guess I have to admit she’s right), but one thing she mentioned was my hero’s career. When the story … More CHARACTER CAREERS
I’m really bad! But I can’t believe it’s the last day of July. Where has the summer gone? Washed away by all the rain we’ve been having. This has been the strangest summer but it finally feels like summer. The kids have finally had a chance to go swimming but nearly every day we’ve had … More Wow….has it been a month?
Well, I’m not sure how to go about this. I’ve started editing a wip I’ve had around for a long time. While this will include mainly editing material I’ve already written, I’m also adding a bunch to it and changing a lot. Doing a lot of cutting and pasting (I think it’s easier to do … More Gauging Progress
I was digging through a closet looking for a box of photographs but instead found about a dozen old notebooks filled with bits and pieces of stories, some going back as far as college. God, they’re bad. LOL I was hoping that maybe there’d be something that I could use now, but I don’t think … More Notebooks Notebooks Everywhere
Okay, well that doesn’t sound as good as I thought it would, but it pretty much desribes what will be going on here over the next few days. I am nearly done with my NaNo project. I think I’m up to my last scene. So then I can start editing. Just throw it on top … More Editopolis
I decided since I did so well on my “new” word count yesterday that I’d concentrate on editing this morning. I’m at that very tedious stage of removing “junk” words like “that” and “just” and “really”. Such a long project, finding one little word in a 91K document and removing the ones that don’t belong. … More Oh Editing
So, will he or won’t he? We may get another storm tomorrow. But then again, we may not. The local weather people aren’t being too helpful. I’d be just as happy NOT having more snow but my kids are rootin for another snow day. Now we’re into February I have to begin my editing. I’m … More HAPPY GROUNDHOGS DAY!
Though I’m still not 100% sure I’ll participate, I’m still thinking about story ideas. I have a few.I have a question though. I have a Part Two of a trilogy I’ve wanted to work on. Part One is pretty much done though it needs major work. I started working on Part Two a few years … More NaNo Coming Soon!
