Guess what? I’m back at the writing!
The other night I wasn’t planning on doing any, and I churned out a page
after a quick format check of all my documents. It seems that the
manuscript submission guidleines have either changed, or become slightly
less strict in the past few years. I like to
adhere to those as I write, that way I won’t have to worry about
formatting later on.
I’m going to try and get more in from time to time, but I take that
‘random spout’ as a good sign. You can’t rush or force this. Sometimes
it just comes, and other times, you just aren’t in the mood to sit at
the computer. I’m also in the progress of migrating
from my old main pc to my new main PC. It’ll take a little bit before
it’s entirely back, but I’m up and running now.
All of my book titles are 'as of now.' I'd like to to use them, and
explore what they could mean, or how to tie into my work. This may go
against writing, in that you write first, and have your book title near
the end, but I sort of had some titles first, then developed its meaning
or a plot point about it. I have a general idea on my story, but
sometimes a title can help the story out. For example, both "The
Fellowship of the Ring" and "The Return of the Shadow" both work because
they hint at what happens, or what "The Lord of the Rings" Part 1 is
It looks like I may still be able to make my Oct. deadline. Not for Volume I, but for the short story I’m working on.
