Finished the first draft for Lost Pages last night. Once I got to the middle of the story, it was flowing pretty well. As I mentioned earlier, I already wrote this story once. The climax came pretty easily, with only a few minor adjustments from last time. So now I just need to edit it, then out the door it goes. There is a polish challenge coming up at Liberty Hall soon, so I may post it there too.
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.
has arrived. I’m looking forward to getting back home.
I didn’t write over the weekend. Largely, I was lazy. No other reason. I can very clearly picture several blocks of time where I could have been writing. I just need to keep reminding myself how I should be slicing up that free time.
Took the kids to the Carnegie museum with some of their friends on Sat, which was a lot of fun. Then on Sunday we took them both to the live show Elmo Grows Up. They both loved it. Though I got a good laugh at the parents readily shelling out $15 for an elmo balloon, which is most likely out of helium today. Next weekend is Tori’s birthday, which I’m hoping she’ll enjoy.
Comes a story.
Free Fiction Here!
It’s almost 2009. In general, I don’t get too excited for New Years Eve. But it is definitely a time for me to be introspective about the year prior, and the changes I’d like to make for the new year.
I feel like I’m on the verge of a break through with my writing. My goal for the next year is to spend less of my free time on “frivolous” pursuits, and more time writing. Frivolity certainly has it’s place, but at the same time, it’s not helping my writing along. Granted, it won’t be instantaneous, but I’ll feel a lot better about it if I’m working toward that goal.
My goal is to hit the market Beneath Ceaseless Skies. I really like the mag, and I’d love to see my work there.
Well, the party is starting soon. We’ll have a good time. Hopefully the kids decide to sleep in tomorrow, otherwise it will be a long day.
Just getting this blog set up and seeing how things look.
