I'm reaching that stage where I'm a bit terrified about where I'm going. I know from experience that it's pretty well downhill from 50k--thank goodness. However, the more I write, the more things are deviating from my [extremely loose] outline/plot guide. I'm already seeing the need for tons of scenes to be added earlier in the draft, freaking out about the heavy lean towards romance [though it's not a bad thing], and generally wondering how the hell I can communicate without their #$*@ eyes.
In short, I'm making progress.
Tonight will be Sigo's last night with Evan and me. We're going to Nashville this weekend, so we'll be taking Sigo to her new home a little earlier than expected.
She had a fairly stressful weekend visiting the in-laws and their cats.
Lots of toys lying about, though.
Herbie just wanted to be friends, but he's a big boy & a wee bit intimidating (even though his legs are three inches long and he's declawed...)
I"m reading my first Jodi Picoult book, Nineteen Minutes. I'll withhold judgment until I'm finished.
In the meantime, I'm curious about your genres.
What genre do you write?
Sometimes Blogger seems inundated with YA authors--not that there's anything wrong with that. Just wondering where some of the other genres are!
