Just finished that scene I've been working on for what feels like a billion years! It clocks in at 3,547 words and I think it's pretty cool but that's up for debate when I get to the reread… I've really only got a few scenes left and they all flow together pretty much uninterrupted, but I think they're going to be difficult as well. :-/

But I'm getting there!!

Can't believe it's the last day in February! Where does the time go? Also, I need the next Artimes Fowl book. Might be bookstore time………

Just keep going, just keep going

As you can probably ascertain from the lack of post last week, the writing's been kind of rough lately. Didn't do much last week at all and was getting pretty depressed about ever picking it up again! Yesterday, though, a Starbucks session and an Earl Grey Latte gained me some momentum and last night I wrote nearly 500 words on my iPhone with my thumbs, so I think the ole grey matter might be working again.

The scene I'm in is a long one, but it's important, and one of those ones that needs to be written slowly. Only a few more scenes to be rewritten for this particular thread, and then I get to take a step back and consider some other elements of the novel. Here's hoping it will go smoothly!

Also, and hopefully I'll get around to some reviews soon, I've been reading the Artimes Fowl series over the last several months and I'm on book six now and I love them!! I'm way sad that I only have two books left after this one, but that won't keep me from busting through them anyway……

Here's to Tuesday! Go forth and prosper! :-)

Just a Tuesday in February

So, only a few more scenes left to rewrite, but they're doozys!! Juuuuuust finished one this morning that I've been working on for nearly a week, but it was one of those scenes that you just have to plug away at slowly. I THINK I made it better. Hopefully. We'll see how it holds up when I do my read through.

All the scenes I have left are going to be similarly slow in coming, I think. Which is daunting. And I'm fast-approaching the extremely important ending scenes, which frighten me immensely. This is so hard!!!! But worth it. Well, hopefully. :-D

Onwards and upwards!

ETA As of 3:00 I just finished another scene!! And I think it might be awesome! Woohoo!!!
