I’m up to 15k on Alpha Female and I fear that I’m stuck again (I’m also talking in Natasha’s voice…by sheer accident…oops). I wrote 1,001 words today but it was like pulling teeth. I think it took me 2 to 3 sessions spread over 5 hours. Ye Gods. I admit that I’m a bit lost on the transition from before the hunt to beginning the hunt, and I wonder if I even need it at all. For now, it stays. I’ll make a ruling once I start revising.
Sooooooo I know basically what happens next. Luke and Natasha bond some more, discuss her becoming Lupi. They talk about Meaningful Things, possibly even Natasha’s deceased nashan (husband). They may get intimate, I’m not sure. But then I know where to go from there. It’s just the execution.
I’ve got 10k more to finish this. I suspect I might go over, but hopefully not by much.
As for other things, I just finished edits on Life as a Moving Target. It’s been approved by the others, so now I need to figure out formatting and find a cover. I want to use one of my own pictures for that. I actually had a concept come to me recently but it would require a really complex image. Not sure yet if I want to go that way.
On Pirouette: unfortunately I haven’t had much extra time to work on the plotcards. I’ll try to get some don this week. I feel like I’m losing touch with it, and that’s not good.
The song stuck in my head today is “Lost in Life” by Sirenia.
