Progress so far

One of those good news/bad news posts. The good news is that I'm writing. Every day. I'm thinking about writing even when I'm no where near pen and paper/computer(that may classify as bad news for my bosses). I'm only on page sixteen of rewrites for Alex but that's because I've had to do some research for some of his scenes. That's page sixteen, single spaced, eleven point font.

Bracken and Kelly are being a bit more difficult so I've decided to let them drift to the back of my mind while they figure out what's keeping them apart. Besides the external conflict and her need to fit in and be normal. I need something bigger, something over-the-top, something on par with saving the world or a soul. How do you follow up those kind of story lines?

While I figure that out, I'm going to continue to focus on Alex and Nea and the pretty little soul turning black in the corner of the room. And increasing my word count every day.


  1. While you're getting your colors done, why don't you do Nea and Alex's? Or Bracken and Kelly's Seriously.

  2. I bet that Bracken and Kelly's conflict will pop into your mind when you least expect it. Concentrating on Alex and Nea sounds like a good idea. You're moving forward and allowing your subconscious to work on the other couple's story.

    You're doing great. This is the way you work. It works for you. Once you've got it settled in your mind, the words will flow onto paper. Count on it!

    Hey, you redecorated around here!

    It will probably come to you in the shower. Stock up on crayons.
