I’m at 31,000 words on my first draft and very happy about it. New ideas are pouring in, there’s a dead body, a mysterious guy, a first kiss, and a gruesome doll with a handful of mayonnaised corncobs (the kind on the stick that are good for defense – like the corn in Nacho Libre). I would have added the video, but my daughter told me it wasn't funny at all - and too too gruesome. Corncobs in the eyes? Ewww.
Yes, things are rolling along.
My awesome critique group and I spent the afternoon the other day, laughing it up and plotting my character’s next move. Those characters are so dang funny! Plus they always surprise me (Why did that girl write that poem in the first place? I mean …really?).
My goal. To have my ms finished by the New Year. Revise and hand it over to my gay-not-gay agent man. Hum…he might not like me calling him that. It’s okay, he is awesome…and destined to by my agent (he doesn’t know that, so don’t tell him). Hee hee hee hee. Oh I mean, mwa ha ha ha. Really, he is an amazing agent.
*sigh - wiping a tear from the corner of my eye from mwa ha-ing too much*
Yes, things are moving in the right direction and I hope they keep going that way. I just have to keep on writing.
Woo hoo for greasy corn on the cob! Sorry, that just came out of nowhere.
OH I forgot to thank everyone for their help last week (finding time to write). That's why I got so much done! Thanks, thanks, thanks!
