We’ve been passing a cold around our family this past half-week. It’s my turn now, blech.
However, in spite of it all, I did get words!
Kai’s novel (total): 63,872 words
Kai’s novel (new): 4, 158 words
I also got 700+ words worth of notes on a story idea (not Secret Project, but another project—Secret Project 2?) when a character popped into my head and started talking. When Right Brain dictates, I transcribe. Simple as that.
I took yet another stab at writing a synopsis of Quartz. This time I went hunting for some how-to tips, and came upon this post by Diana Peterfreund which led me to these workshops by Kathy Carmichael, and the result is that I’m much happier with my current draft. It still needs a lot of work–which I was going to do tonight–but *sigh* I might just stay in bed and nurse my cold and save my energy for school tomorrow.
How’s your writing coming along?
