My weekend is nearly gone and I've hardly put a dent in the WIP. At least this weekend I have a valid excuse. My hubby went up north with a friend to replace a cabin roof and in addition to my two munchkins I had two extra kids underfoot for two days. For the first time since Friday afternoon I have peace and quiet. I hope the boys' naps last for at least two hours. Selfish of me, I know.

What I did accomplish on the WIP felt pretty good. I did some editing--it's too hard to actually write when you have four children clamoring for your attention. I also did some more world and character building because I found the niftiest program to help get me organized. Unfortunatly the software is a demo and will only run for a total of 20 times. If it were a $30-50 program this would be no problem but I'm not in a position to dish out $200 at the moment. So, I'm conserving my useage and settling on printing whatever I'm managed to input on the 20th session.

You're a Sapphire. You seem to be unreachable, but
deep inside, you are really a nice and warm
person. You are elegant and get along well with
people once you know them.

I really wanted to be an emerald but even when I took the stupid thing twice (purposely changing a few answers to second choice options) I still managed to be a sapphire. Huh.
Nothing and Nonsense

I really have nothing much to say this morning. I think my brain is still sleeping. Maybe some hot chocolate would help--picked up this nifty new Butterfinger flavored stuff. Yeah, that sounds yummy.

I'm hoping to wake up enough to get some work done on the WIP. I also think it's time to look for some publishing and/or agent contacts for Dragonborn. Although, I think I'll read it again with an eye for cliches and lack of exposition. I have a feeling the cliches will be harder to fix than the exposition. Go figure.

ASWK is coming along. I'm on Chapter Six. This would be the scene where Vryc and Davne come to an agreement on her leaving Glamyr, then they break out the slaves, and...you'll just have to read the rest to find out. Let's just say this is a chapter where crisis number one comes to a head. At least...I think this is crisis number one. This plotting stuff can be difficult.







Changed the look of this again. I really didn't like the last template I used...the font was too small and I was too lazy to try to modify the html text.

So...let's see if I like this any better.
