Standard

Woke up thinking about the novel.  Went to bed thinking about it.  Now, though, I know how to fix some of the things that were slightly off before.  Sleeping on it can make all the difference.

The main characters are charging forward, but there’s something waiting for them, more than they were expecting.

Dad … You said what?

Standard

I love my father.  I inherited his height.  Being a woman and over six feet tall makes me definitely look like his side of the family.

My husband, while not short, isn’t as tall as I am.

After we were first married, we did laundry at my parents’ place.  We were on our way up North (something my father definitely didn’t like).  Anyway, my dad called me into the laundry room with a frown on his face.  He was holding a pair of blue jeans.

“Baby,” he said.  “I’m sorry, but I think we shrank a pair of your jeans.”

“No, Dad,” I replied.  And I let him know that those jeans belonged to my husband.

Dad gave a whistle and then said, “Well, honey, your husband’s a good man, but I think that boy was picked when he was green!”

AH, JANUARY FLU, SO WE MEET AGAIN

Standard

Every year.  I mean EVERY year.  I thought I had escaped this time.  I didn’t catch it when the kids were sick.

But no.  Someone typed the word FLU online and I think I caught it.

Doesn’t matter.  This novel is getting done.  Flu or new flu.

UP AND READY TO WRITE

Standard

Still recovering from a migraine, but ready to write.  I think the “kiss” scene is just about resolved.  Time for the action to start.  Not that kind of action.

The monsters are ready to plow through.  And then a fight with the villain.  It’s time to finish this thing.

GOT A GAME PLAN AND READY TO ROLL

Standard

Realized that something I was trying to fit into the scenes right before the climax (something that kept me from being able to go forward) is something that I can take care of earlier.

Instead of continuing to beat my head against the wall and making it fit, moving that scene made all the difference.

After that, on to the church scene that I’ve been trying to write.

FORMATTING

Standard

Since the first three parts of the book have been edited, I’m starting to format those for Amazon.com.  Creating the interactive table of contents can be a pain, but worth it, to the writer and the reader.  And doing it bit by bit, means I don’t have to do all of it at once.

Going through everything again from the beginning is helping me make sure that I’ve covered everything I need to and that I haven’t repeated myself a ton.

A NOTE FROM OUR HERO

Standard

We’ve heard a lot from the villain of Lott’s Mountain.  Today, we have the hero with us.

Dylan Caid is from … Dylan?  Wait, he’s leaving. Dylan, I haven’t asked any questions yet …

I guess, um, well, I guess we’ll try this later.
