That’s what I’ve been doing for the past few weeks with Survivor — I know exactly where I want to end up, but I’m taking a few little detours and letting my muse play a bit. It’s been interesting, to say the least. I made yet another complication to the main character’s recovery. I don’t know alot about deprogramming someone who’s been brainwashed, but between my own research and a friend’s help, I have an idea, and that’s enough for now. Because the condition is fictional, loosely based on a real one, I think I can improvise a bit with it.
I’m very close to the end. I don’t think I can get it finished before the wedding, but after I get back from my honeymoon, I think I have a good chance of doing it then.
Also, I’m bringing Flamebound with me on vacay, in case I have some time to write. I doubt that will happen, but hey — you just never know. And I can’t imagine not writing for a whole week. 😦 I need to do something, even if it’s another read through and making comments. Got to feel productive.
Flamebound will be undergoing yet another rewrite. I’m still targeting it to Nocturne Bites, and if the changes I plan on making work, it might end up the right wordcount for them (15k). If not, there are other e-publishers that take novellas.
What else? I’m starting to get nervous about the wedding. Not so much “what am I doing?!” nerves, more like anxiety that something’s going to go wrong. I just want a smooth day. It doesn’t need to be perfect, but I want it to be a close to perfect as possible.
Also considering my next big project. I have something in mind and what publisher I will be targeting. It’s Soulfire, of course. I’m pretty excited about that.
Pirouette is being critted by 6 people. I hope to have the crits back within the next few months so if there are changes needed, I can make them and get it out the door. Very exciting to be this close.
Okay, well I probably won’t be back till after the honeymoon. So, wish me luck and I’ll see you on the other side.
