WIP Update!

I broke 60K here in the wee hours of Sunday morning, and I finally got my MC and her man in bed. Sheesh. I'd been trying to make that happen all week but between their chaotic lives and my limited time for writing during the week, I only just now got to that scene.

Well, it was worth it, both for plot purposes and because what's the point of having characters if you don't torture them a little by making them wait and throwing a few needless (to them, not to the plot) deaths between them and their desires?

A lot of interesting things are happening with this story-- themes I hadn't planned are emerging and characters are developing in unanticipated ways. I'm a little concerned that I may have too many characters and sub-plots, but that's a matter for the editing phase. For now I'm just enjoying being in the zone with these characters, and I hope they keep talking to me and get me to the end with a minimum of difficulties. Ideally, I'd like to be done with the draft before I go on vacation next month. At my current rate of progress, it just might happen!

That's great news - congratulations!

I hope the story keeps flowing for you.

I'm impressed by how many balls you have in the air (reading the last post). If you could bottle your energy I'd like some!

WOO HOO, Aunt Bunnygirl! That is fabulous! You are smokin'!

Mom is still working on restructuring her WIP, Heart's Chalice, but she's making progress with the restructuring, and nifty things have emerged storywise. I know she's happier with how things are going because she isn't muttering under her breath like she used to. *giggle*

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

I don't remember. This is a very old post.
