So far, this week has been...interesting. Writing-wise, anyway.
Ghostly WV Story: On hold at the moment. I got about 60 pages in before realizing that the plot makes no sense and I can’t push forward because there’s no logical next point to push forward to. I love it to pieces, but for now I’m letting it stew because, honestly, if I try to continue now I’ll probably end up burning it.
Mermaids & Neverland Short Story: Going well. The third draft’s finished and I’m getting ready for the fourth. At this point I’m SO TIRED and just want to finish things up, which means I’ve got at least four more drafts to go. I’m never satisfied with my own writing style, and plots are tricky for me, but I really hope this one comes together in the end.
Other Short Story: Midway through a first draft. This one has a lot to do with memory and family (at least I hope it does). Also, superheros. Hopefully I’ll be able to talk about it a little more once the first draft’s done.
Other Ideas: I have a backlog of ideas right now, but they’re not necessarily all ones I want to write about. A couple MG contemporaries, something to do with 1920s speakeasy werewolves, something to do with flying ships (because Treasure Planet), more contemporaries….I need a break from dark and broody stories. I’m not in the mood for whimsy, exactly, but something lighter and fun.
What have you been working on this week?
