Happy Friday, Aledan Merfolk! This week the slow season at work officially ended, abruptly, and I’ve been insanely busy. Which is why this update is going up rather late, and Science Tuesday never happened. It’s also why I haven’t sent my critters new StO chapters all week long. Not that I haven’t been writing – in fact, I bought a new writing notebook at lunch 😀 Is there anything better than finishing a writing notebook? Other than ponies and wine, of course?
Speaking of ponies, I have merponies coming to the blog for Custom of the Week! Hopefully lots and lots of merponies, and maybe even a sea pony! Why yes, there is a difference, which I’ll explain if I’m allowed to feature the sea pony 🙂
As far as chugging along on StO goes, I’ve reached the muddy middle, where I’m not sure if what I’m writing is working, or if I’m going to have to scrap it and re-write. There doesn’t seem to be enough driving force in this section. I’m also not quite sure how to get to the midpoint. I know what happens at the midpoint (you’re going to love it), but I don’t quite know how to get to it without rushing everything. Once I get to the second “pinch point” as Story Engineering calls it, I have everything set and ready to go. But yeah, still climbing that hill to the midpoint.
Speaking of climbing hills, let’s check out those #WriteMotivation goals:
1. Continue writing Speak the Ocean. I’ve hit the muddy middle section, but I’m still writing daily.
2. Start writing the query for StO. I still need to work on the middle and end.
3. Do better with visiting the other blogs. Um, oops.
4. Run 2x per week. Yoga once per week. I haven’t run for my second time yet this week, but maybe tonight, since it’s so nice out.
Not bad, except for the other blogs part.
Have a good weekend, Aledan Merfolk. I’ll see you back here on Sunday for a merpony custom!
