Ah! Thank God it’s Friday! How do five days feel so looooonnnggg? I don’t know, but I swear this week lasted an eternity. It’s been a good week, though. Let’s see, what have I accomplished?
Got the word count on the 2YN story. I met an unexpected character as well, who has a beautiful house. I really had no idea she was going to show up, and she just sort of popped up, waving at me and saying “Hello, there! I’m over here!” I love it when characters do that. They just spring to life on the page, fully formed and ready for action. She’s great, too.
I finished this round of edits on Through Shadowed Stone. I got all the edits keyed in (Yay!). And I’m about to email it to one of my crit group partners who agreed to read it (Thank you, Myriddin!) It will be good to get an unbiased opinion of it. Even if it’s a negative opinion. I’m really okay with that.
I haven’t started writing the zombie story yet. Maybe tonight. If not, definitely tomorrow, since I have to have the first chapter done for our Sunday meeting. I did do a little brainstorming last night, on paper, so I think I’ve got a good grip on what needs to happen. I just haven’t quite had the time.
I also started outlining my NaNo story. I actually have three phases fully outlined, and a basic idea of the next two. After that, your guess is as good as mine. Hopefully, it will all come to me. At least, that’s the plan. I’ve found that thinking about the story right before I fall asleep helps a lot. I usually wake up with whatever problem I’m wrestling with resolved to some extent.
And that’s about it.
