Well, the weekend’s over, and I gotta say, ’twas pretty doggone good all in all.
I got a LOT of writing done. I added another 5K to the ol’ WIP, so now I’m within site of the conclusion. After that, I’ll be going back and making some of the changes y’all suggested in the first six chapters, maybe cutting some of the opening scenes so the set-up isn’t so LOOOOOONG, and then re-writing chapter six, which almost everyone hated universally. (I’d love to know why though; I never did get my head around why that one was such a stinkburger.)
With the conclusion in site, but not set in stone, I’m in a quandary as to what to do with a couple of characters. I don’t want them to come across as pointless or as throw-aways, but I also need to close this loop and that loop, and I need to accomplish certain things, and I’m not sure why I did this or that or the other, but that’s all said and done and now I have to figure out what I should do with these people. I mean, with the best interest of the story at heart.
Other than that, not much happened over the weekend. I got a lot done online, it seems, and I covered a lot of ground with respect to writing, and even had a pretty doggone good weekend with my back pain. The computer chair doesn’t seem to be an issue — maybe I had to get used to it. Sometimes it still hurts, but that’s just a way of life for me at this point, I think. We continue our weight loss odyssey and as I get thinner, some of the back issues will alleviate.
How about you guys? Did you have good weekends? Do anything special? Sound off — I wanna hear from ya!
