Just a quick post to say that my story "Gran's Balloon Magic" is out now in Take a Break Fiction Feast along with TWO from fellow Story a Fortnight member Karen. The really exciting thing is that all three stories were written to prompts within the group. It's a SAF triple bill!
In other news I'm still plodding along with novel 2. Actually 'plodding along' is a bit unfair as I am enjoying writing it (apart from a brief freak-out after I'd written the 9 scenes I'd plotted and wasn't sure what happened next!).
One thing I am doing differently from novel 1 is that, whenever I hit a chunk of the novel that makes me want to stop writing (like a paragraph of description or a bit of back story that I'm not sure about yet) I'm putting a note in square brackets
[put in something about B's relationship history here].
Then carrying on writing.
I just don't want to ruin the forward momentum or get horribly blocked by agonising over tricky paragraphs. I just want to get this draft written!
So far so good and I'm on target for getting the first draft done by the beginning of June - I'm just trying to avoid looking at the scary post it note on my wall that says "15,000 words a month"!
13,479 / 90,000 words written (15.0%)
