is poking me to tell her story. I know, I know. I’ve got 3 projects in various stages of completion, and I don’t need another one. But the siren call of a conspiracy involving quantum mechanics and a girl who has rare magic just won’t leave me alone. I know very little right now — just her name (and I know the Lord of the Rings connection, although I didn’t when the name just popped into my head). I know that she’s going to be a regular person, or so she thinks, in the beginning, but then stumble onto the conspiracy and such like. I’ll admit it: this is partially Lost’s fault. Obviously, I won’t be copying any of the ideas in it, but it has inspired me to do something with the idea of alternate universes and maybe even time travel. One of those, ‘here’s what could happen in one universe, and see how it affects the others’ kind of thing. It’s still really nebulous. And it is making me crazy.
Pirouette the Third is coming along. I’ve had to rewrite a few scenes due to getting better ideas after the fact. The Muse seems to be a bit slow on the uptake. I have one more scene to fix, then I’m back in business. My goal is to finish this draft by the end of June.
Flamebound‘s revision is also coming along, a bit slow as well, but that’s okay. Going to try to finish lesson 7 this weekend if I can so I can move on.
And finally, I have the shimmers of a possible next scene for Broken. One thing I’ve decided: I can break a bit and work on something else a bit if it doesn’t interfere with the others. Just to help me feel like I’m making progress and while I’ve got these ideas, it’s best to use them, right? Right.
So all in all, for a very lean month for new words, I think I’m doing okay. 4,561 words on April Fools as of today. Less than 500 to my goal of 5k.
