Making very slow progress on Pirouette the Third. I’ve been ripping it apart, deleting scenes or condensing them, and rewriting others. I’ve got it down to 117k which is really cool.
I’m focusing on Alisia and Lucien’s relationship arc, as well as the subplot. I realized that I may not have been as brutal as I should have been when I did the One Pass Revision. I also found out some big flaws (thanks to my critiquers) that needed fixing. But that’s okay, because I want it to be stronger, and it will be when I’m done.
I like what I’m getting.
Although sometimes it feels like I’m juggling three balls.
As for Soulfire, got a tentative plot in mind and things are starting to gel. I’m very happy about that. I have a possible first line, and the theme song. And a 73-song playlist. The theme song is Baba O’Riley by The Who. I realized that it could be a metaphor for the future dystopic Earth I’m creating. That really made my day.
Nanowrimo in 19 days. I can’t wait.
Also did a major overhaul on my website yet again. This version is simpler and cleaner, and I love it. Check it out at http://www.erinkendall.com. Most of the links aren’t live yet, however. The Writer link is.
And lastly, I’m beginning to have problems with my wrist again. So it looks like I’ll be voice reccing Nano again. Was hoping to avoid that, but hey, I’m glad it’s possible. I still have a good chance of getting 50k that way.
So that’s what’s going on.
