I give so much love to Blogger, and I swear they hate me. They erased ALL the comments from Wednesday, and Tuesday, too, I think. Darn outages! Grr... So if you posted a comment here and it's now missing, I'm terribly sorry. *points finger at Blogger tech people*
I printed up Chapter 9 of the OMGICBIGTFAQ wip so I could tweak it on paper. It's the only thing that works for me with those really messy chapters. I started red penning notes on it earlier, and I've got my post-its out to mark passages, but it's hard to concentrate with Mini singing to Diego and alternately climbing in my lap and tugging at my T shirt. I decided to put it aside for now and pull it out again in a few hours. Basically, I'm gonna massacre this chapter once the kids go to bed tonight. *evil hand wringing*
Until then, I'm working on plot cards for a second piece. It's another one of those I can't believe I quit pieces, and it's sitting at around 40-50k because I have no idea where to go with this story beyond the first few coherent chapters. (Hm. I'm seeing a trend in my own writing...) This story a contemporary romance, and I absolutely love the beginning of this book - but after about 7 chapters it fizzles to nothing. *sigh* I'm hoping note cards will help me find the right direction to take the book so I can see it through to the end. I'd really hate to waste a beginning like that.
Oh, yeah, note to self: Idiot creature, never, never, ever attempt more than one project at a time again!!! It's definitely more trouble than it's worth. :S Honestly, I don't know how so many authors do it.
It's rumbling thunder outside and the wind is blowing pretty strong, so I guess I'll find a stopping point for today. I hope you've all had a great day, and if not, take heart - tomorrow's Friday! *dance, dance*
