ROW 80 update
I am so far behind, and I have so much on my plate, that I feel this portion of the week was a miracle. I am way too weary to talk about why. I can only say that I think I found the element that did not feel good enough or fun enough, and with much persistent work, I am finally able to go after it.
Wednesday Day 3 - Nothing -- this is the long day at work. Still recovering from the migraine.
Thursday Day 4 - 3 sessions. I was brainstorming to get momentum up again. I had really bad sinuses though, so I was still battling health and weariness. Still, I think going back and redoing a short scene that didn't satisfy into a foundation scene for the story might be just what I need.
Friday Day 5 - 3 sessions. Some fruitful brainstorming. I am moving into the Mess Of The Full Blown Book stage. I needed one more thread to carry what I've been writing, and I finally found it.
Part of the problem was that the idea was originally a novella or even novelette -- so some elements were a tad "light weight" for the story. But it's also a risky transition time -- when you pull out the threads and can get into a bigger project than you expected. Still, I think this will make it a much better book. And tomorrow I can get back to writing.
Saturday Day 6 - 3 sessions, 60 minutes (writing). I had hours and hours of prep work, but I think I'm finally almost caught up on all the work I missed last weekend. I really feel good about the work I did today.
See you in the funny papers.
