Edited: I added a deleted opening scene for The Best Thing, written in Elizabeth’s POV but discarded when I realized it wasn’t right for the story. Also, apparently my host is upgrading my server next week or so, so at some point, things might not work for a bit. I don’t know much about it, because it’s beyond my technical experience, but it’s just an fyi.
I know my posting has fallen off drastically in the last few weeks, so my apologies for that. I’ve been super busy with a lot of offline nosense. I had a friend staying with me for a week, I went to Ireland for my birthday and then I had a major dissertation conference a few days ago, so I really had to get moving on that project.
I’ve been tired as a result and haven’t done much writing. Here’s where we stand:
– I have five scenes left for Damaged, Episode 004. My plans are to finish those up today and tomorrow, and post it sometime late tomorrow night.
– I have fallen behind on writing The Best Thing, and have been stuck on a scene in Chapter 7 for almost a week. Not because it’s difficult to write, but it’s an important scene and I keep restarting it. I hope to get that and Chapter 8 done tonight. Once I break through this, I hope to get a chapter done a day.
– Despite those ambitious plans, I am only posting on Mondays for a while. I still have a lot on my plate this summer: the dissertation has to be written by August 25, so I can go home to New Jersey by August 30. I have another friend coming to London at the end of June, and I, myself, am returning to the golden shores of the Delaware River for a week in June. So it’s just easier to post one day a week.
I am constantly thinking about my fun writing as a break from the relatively dry constiutional and Parliamentary legal literature I’m reading from the eighteenth century. I hope to get back into the swing of things shortly. Until then…um…I love you all very much 😛
