Flu or No Flu

I was sick for a few days, and I took time off from my writing. I slept and didn’t do much else, so it was terrific to come back to the computer today! I got into a wonderful groove and wrote for over 2 hours straight, and I think I can see the finish line up ahead. I have a clear idea of where I want to go and how to get there, and I’ve even gotten some ideas on how to clear up the middle without too much disruption to my characters. It was a great day for writing, and I have to say I think it might have been a bit inspired by the morning sky :-)

Cruising

I’m still going strong! The Elements is at almost 70K, and I’m getting to the good stuff now. I’m going to need a lot of editing time on this one, but I’m really pleased with the characters and storyline. I set out to make it something I would like to read, and I think I’ve done just that. I stayed true to my original plan and didn’t try and fit a mold of someone else’s idea, and I think that made all the difference!

Editing

I sat in the waiting room while my son had therapy yesterday, and I was able to do some editing. What a great feeling to be productive when you’re forced to be somewhere! This whole “cloud” thing has changed my perspective on writing, and I’m happy to say that I’m even more motivated now than I was. I feel less pressed for time since I can take my writing with me wherever I go and not worry about losing it or syncing the changes, and that makes this ADHD person very, VERY happy!

Raising the Stakes

Well, I spent a lot of time mulling over where this current novel is going. I’ve done a lot of outlining, some character switches, even changed the plot outcome some, and I’m much happier with it. I’m going to participate in Camp NaNoWriMo┬áthis April with a goal of 75,000 words total (not as in “more” than what I have now. I’m not crazy!), and it looks like I have a “cabin” full of people around the same age and working on the same genre and I am. I’m also about 1/4 of the way through Writing the Breakout Novel and have been taking notes, so I should be ready to rock and roll come the 1st!

Break

I took a week or so off from writing. I’ve had a lot of stuff going through my head with regard to my completed manuscript and the one I’ve been writing, so I decided to take some time and try to make sense of it all. I’ve also been making connections with some other writers out there, and it’s been nice to “share” things with people in the same facet of life I’m living. I’m back at it again starting today (it’s raining and storming here, so what better day?), and it’s good to be at my computer again.

Just like our planet rotates and the sun’s rays lighten the darkness, in the magical world, Light consistently disperses Dark. However, even the world of magic has its storms, and sometimes the damage left in their wakes can never be undone.
