Well, I’m caught up from the notebooks. Everything is digial now. What a relief. The process was good to get me refreshed on where I was at in the novel too. It’s not world class writing, but it’s there, and I can work with it.
I’m tired. Currently nursing a diet pepsi. Will be a coffee night tonight. Anyone have a time travel device so that I can do what I currently do and get eight hours of sleep?
So my to-do list is as it stands:
- Novel – at least I know where I need to go with it for the immediate future.
- Edit Bingo story – figured out what I need the end to be, for a more satisfying conclusion. Sub that.
- edit pre-quel short stories or complete them. predates events that are happening in novel. Probably a total of three stories. Then sub them.
- short story cycle – i still want to finish this. probably the longest of my short projects.
Kurt mentioned he was having problems commenting. So if you’re reading here, please try and comment. Or let me know if it doesn’t work. Thanks!
I was wrinting along last night, all was going well. Then I dozed off and completely lost my train of thought. Picked it back up this morning and all is well again.
This challenge is 7 interconnected stories. Yet they need to be able to stand alone. ABDCE. While I am enjoying the project, it’s certainly not turning about to be short by any stretch of the imagination. Then of course is the worry about whether or not I’ll be able to sell it later. Maybe pick the best and send that one off, hoping a mag would pick up the others afterwards. Or try and sell it as a group. We shall see. I really am enjoying writing the story. I guess that is the main part. I’d just like to see something come of it after I’m done. Something more than my own satisfaction at seeing it completed.
edit: I guess I should worry about getting this done more than I should worry about whether or not it will be published.
onto my paper. At least until I got too tired to hold a coherent thought together (not sure if the Pink Floyd was helping or hurting this). We stayed up for too late last night. Which was completely my fault. Sorry babe. Anyway, off to bed shortly, maybe I’ll be able to catch up on some sleep. More writing to come tomorrow.
