This week went way too fast. I'm not even sure where most of it went. Oh, yeah, at least a good chunk of it was devoured by Evercrack (um...I mean Everquest).
I had the most difficult time revising when I sat down to do it earlier this week, and was only able to accomplish 250 words in an hour and a half. Don't ask why - or if you might know why, please tell me. ;) Did about another 500 the next day to at least finish off the scene, and I think the scene ended well at least. I'm learning more and more how Bastian works - I thought he was going to be too stubborn to agree to something (that he agreed to much quicker in the rough draft when I didn't know how much of an ass - and I mean unmoving donkey - he really was), but Tessa baited him right, which is one of the things she's good at doing. Of course she'll make a good High Priestess, she's a manipulative little bitch. *evil grins*
The next scene is a longer one (at least in my terms), and the next scene/chapter is even longer than that. Maybe that's why I'm procrastinating. I know my butt will have to be glued to the couch and my laptop soldered to my lap for a long while, since I hate stopping in the middle of the scene; if I do, I lose my train of thought and next time I sit down to revise, I suck up lots of time by re-reading the stuff through.
Oh, look at all that commentary above. And I thought I'd have nothing to say when I finally decided I needed to do a blog entry.
I haven't submitted any of my stories that I received rejections back for. I'm thinking some might need another revision or two. I might just break down and revise "Cold...Oh So Cold" again, even though I said I wouldn't. Maybe just a tense change. Now to find the time to revise. I have a few other older stories that if I just had the time to revise them, they might actually be up to snuff to submit to places. I think I'm going to have to make a "This is what needs to be done" list for all my writings. Something to put on my website? Perhaps. Perhaps not (might just be too boring for most people - not everybody is as list-oriented as I am).
Oh, yes, there hasn't been much progress on the website. I'm ready for it to go live once I get the metadata from my friend, but all the pages off the main page are currently awaiting content. I might work on some of that after this post. It would be fun to send the new site live on Halloween (also my wedding anniversary), but I don't think I can be that patient. I'm hoping it'll be up this week sometime. Here's hoping I can get the search engines to pick it up.
Okay, enough blather. I should be doing more important thing, like revising (and playing Everquest...I didn't say that, really). Happy writing!
