Wow, this season has been a haze of allergies so far. I have no idea what I am allergic to, but I haven’t felt this way in years. I’ve actually had to take benedryl on top of my 24 hr medicine (don’t try this at home, kids).
My Gotham workshop ends today, and I was very happy with it. I learned so much, even though I’ve been writing for publication for ten years. It was fun, and the ladies I met there were fabulous. I hope we can all keep in touch.
My historical romance has been going OK, but I think I need to let it sit for a little while, and sort of age like a wine or something. There is something with the story that’s not working for me, and I need to figure it out before I can move on. Last night my characters spent about 1000 words talking about nothing… it was getting ludicrous. So for a little while I will be working on my fantasy romance. I have about 25k words written on it so far, which takes things to the second turning point, or the threshold of act two.
I might also give the next quarter of Writers of the Future a shot. I have a fairly decent story idea, and have about 8000 words written on it, so it won’t hurt anything to get it done.
