No traffic yesterday, just words, and some fine mashed potatoes I made for dinner.
Many thanks for all the music suggestions. I will be dipping into iTunes this weekend trying them all out. I wrote a lot in the library yesterday. It’s proving harder than usual to write at the apartment because where ever I look, I see things I need to do as part of the upcoming move. Concentration is easier to maintain in the library or coffee shop. After some exercise and breakfast, I’m headed back there today.
purplefairy1688 asked for another photo story starter. (I did this back in March when I was in Kalamazoo.) Using the two photos below, construct a story. You can keep it to yourself, post it here in a comment, or post it in your own journal and link to it here.
how are these connected?
How many of youse guys are interested in story ideas or writing stuff like this? I’m still trying to figure out the purpose and focus of this LJ. I really like it a lot, but I want to make sure it’s interesting to readers. Let me know what you want to see more of. (BTW, brace yourself. Tomorrow’s entry will be answering some piled up mail.)
I’m still working on the barbeque scene in my WIP. I finally figured out what was wrong with the first part. The character was standing around giving us paragraphs of backstory instead of actually doing something. Late yesterday I wrote the climax of the scene (which I love). This morning I have to go back and fill in a couple missing pieces, then begin on the following chapters which deal with the aftermath of the Bad Thing that happens at the barbeque.
Tonight is Mer’s second to last band concert. Her prom is Friday. All of the “lasts” are adding up… she’ll be graduating in a few weeks. She is my youngest biological kid. I can’t begin to express how strange it is to watch her finish high school. I have to stop writing about this now because it is way too early in the day to start crying.
