Okay – so I’m almost 2,000 words into the story, and a little bit stuck. Â I need a bridging event to get me from the set-up to the end. Â So I decided to stop for this check-in and let my hind-brain work on it. Â There are a few more writing hours today, anyway.
Crit on my first fifty was full of good ideas, some big enough I have to really think about them. Â I want to start working on fixing things right now, but I’ll have one more feedback session this week and I should wait. Â Besides, I want to finish this story and get one down on my goals for the workshop. Always, there is more than one thing to do.
Not to mention I’m now reading a GREAT YA I downloaded after I heard about it over dinner last night. Â Thirteen Reasons Why. Â It’s a brilliant story. Hanging out with writers always results in more stuff to-be-read. Â Sigh.
We are back at the Caribou, a pile of writers staring at various screens and doing nefarious things. Â The sky remains full of water and dark clouds, threatening but not yet following through. Â They tell us we’ll have real thunder-storms tomorrow.
