Hey, all! Today is the day in which I talk about a current WIP of mine. Also, I'm going to talk about Dragon*Con, Carrie Ryan, and robots, so stick around.
First today's menu is a gigantic helping of cool excuses as to why I haven't exactly been working on my MSS this past couple of days.
It's been a busy week for me. My husband and I went to the Decatur Book Festival, for one thing, where I heard Carrie Ryan talk about her zombie books. That was cool. But it did interfere with writing.
Also we did stuff with friends and family.
Then we spent a day at Dragon*Con:
|Cute little lego stormstroopers!|
But still, no writing.
But I'll talk about the WIP anyway:
I'm still having trouble with the flow of the story, and perhaps this is where some of my procrastination is coming from... I'm slowly uncovering the motivations of various characters and figuring out their convoluted back stories, but even then the writing itself is feeling clunky to me. Slow. Clogged. I need to do something, but I'm not sure what it is yet. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.
The problem MIGHT be the POV (I'm currently writing in 3rd, but the story is beginning to feel like it needs to be 1st ... since I'm 30k in at this point I rather dread the prospect of changing it...)
|He could look like this.|
I really really really really really wish I had a robot that could change the POV or tenses for me when this happens, because it is SO TEDIOUS to do myself. I would call him Robob. Will someone invent him for me, please?
Thanks. I'll be eternally grateful.
