Reinforcing a minor character’s importance can be a difficult thing to do…

I have been challenged to finish Model Species by the end of the month. We’re within striking distance of finishing a “first draft.” We’ll still have to clean up a few things, maybe add a few things, but we’ll have a set-aside version by November. (If I kick major ass in the next two weeks.) November brings NaNoWriMo and WFC. The plan is to knock out 50K serviceable words on the next book. Eric’s already doing some of the planning for it. As though fall wasn’t busy enough.

I am, of course, in firm procrastination mode.

The weather is cool and rainy. I want nothing more than to curl up with a book (not my own).

Amenable music this morning:
Massive Attack, Mezzanine
Dave Brubeck, “Take Five”
David Bowie, Low
Sisters of Mercy, First, Last, and Always
The Judybats, Pain Makes You Beautiful

One thought on “

  1. First Draft?

    I would say that Model Species will just need some clean-up. It is far beyond being a first draft. The re-writing is pretty much done on parts that have already been written.
