It's been a week since my last post and I'm pleased to say that its been a productive one. The weekend was spent in the garden with the manuscript which I have split into 4 folders for ease of reading. Part one of four is currently covered in red pen and black might I add as I wrote a scene which I was quite pleased with. I started writing the novel with one main character in mind but I felt she needed someone else there, not just as a secondary best friend type character but as a strong lead who she can learn from. That was the reason for the extra scene as in the beginning there isn't a great deal about character 2.
This week so far I have sent out three womag stories so now I have 6 stories out there and 2 left to rewrite and sub. I now have to work on a story for the next fortnight and as such I am drawing a complete blank. I spent last night visiting various places such as Inspiration Corner and the S/Cally Generator and even here which I quite like but I wasn't getting anywhere. I think the problem was I was proper knackered last night and ended up retiring to bed at 9.30pm!! - its this healthy eating kick I'm on which means no choc :-(
Anyway I won't lose heart - the generators have worked for me before and I have my Womag 2 Weekly prompts so I am going to try again tomorrow night. Tonight I am off out to a Thai restaurant for my Dad's birthday. They do delicious food here http://www.patchareethai.com/patmenu1.html mmmmm must stop reading menu and drooling.
