Poorly Thoughts
Monday, April 10, 2006
I haven't been feeling too brilliant the last few days so have neither blogged nor written. No writing for my paid work, and no writing on my novel.

But the break wasn't all bad because I've been knitting and when I knit, I get lots of ideas. Everything's fallen nicely into place for Dan and Sherry so hopefully I'll get to the end without a sagging middle or any other such trouble. The problem I do have is knowing when to put the bits in so that it'll fit nicely within 55,000 words. Still, if it's out by too much, I can always go back and cut/re-write/add or whatever.

I've even managed to get past the stage where another couple of characters start nagging me to write their story. That's when I usually give up on the current story because theirs always sounds like the better one to write. But not this time. I've had a chat with them, written what I suppose equates to a synopsis of their story, and promised them that I'll come back to them as soon as I've finished the work in progress. So far they seem happy enough with that. Admittedly they've been popping up giving me bits of extra info but I've decided to be strict. I don't need to know any more about them or their story at this stage.

I've added a bit to the ongoing story today so I'm now just past 40% (22,122 words) but my 'proper' work got in the way. Oh for the luxury of a year's sabbatical.
