At the end of May, shortly before Mini's birthday, I reread part of Karen Weisner's First Draft in 30 Days, as well as Blake Snyder's Save the Cat Strike's Back, to make sure I have all my writerly tools ready for a fast draft.
I still have a short list of research topics to take care of before Friday, and I'm still tinkering with the scenes in the finale stage of my beat sheet, but for the most part I have everything I need in place to get this story off the ground. Wish me luck!
