I’ve been meaning to mention this for a while–I’ve been working on a YA fantasy concerning female werewolves for a while (working title: THOSE WHO FAVOUR FIRE). It’s going well, and it’s nice to have something completely different to work on when the fantasy novel is driving me up the wall. I’m hoping to eventually query it as well, when the time comes (fingers crossed). I’m enjoying it a lot, and it’s more than nice to have something where not as many expectations, so to speak, are placed upon it.
I finally realised this morning that I’m going to have to dump what I have of CR’s second draft and change it from third person limited to first person.
Oh, this is going to hurt. But I’m confident it will make CR better. *touches wood and crosses fingers*
Every so often, about once or twice a month, I drag my laptop to the nearest Starbucks without internet. I settle in with a venti coffee, plug in my earbuds, and start to write. I usually manage to get a lot of work done, or at least make some decent headway.
Yesterday, I managed to work through a pacing problem in the first draft that had been annoying me since last October. I nearly pumped my arm in the air, drunk on that ‘this is going to be so much better than my first draft’ feeling.
So, yes, yesterday was definitely a good writing day. *g*
