When my kids are quiet, I assume that they’re up to something and investigate sharpish.
Same applies. I too have been up to something.
I have started a LARGER PROJECT.
I have got a trial version of Scrivener, which is an amazing writing programme and I just hope I can remember all the things it does.
I have folders. I have a plot summary. I have a target word count (scary). I have character sheets. I’ve drawn a map. I’ve been reading as research.
If you’re wondering what the picture above is, it’s a hot potato. That’s more or less how I feel about the work in progress. On one hand I’m juggling with it and at every touch ‘Ow!’ – another thing I hadn’t realised. But I also worry that it’ll cool off into a dispiriting lump before I’m anywhere near done. Or that I’ll handle it clumsily and end up with an explosion of scalding mash.
Despite all the complaining, though, I’m having a lot of fun writing it.
So if I’m quiet, just assume I’m up to something.
