Claiming The Prize(Goodness it feels terrific having a title to type in here.....) is moving rapidly toward its conclusion. I will probably meet my weekly word goal today, leaving me a few days to get ahead before Wednesday!
This weekend I am writing a difficult scene. Completely from my hero's point of view, this fight scene has drama.....and getting the logistics right while including only his perspective is a linguistic challenge! I'm halfway finished, and today's work should conclude the scene nicely. With around sixty pages to wrap up my novel, I'm feeling the crunch. I get the sense that the first half of my novel plays out more slowly than the second, and am anxious to have my critique partner assess this situation, although I like that the story builds in intensity as it unfolds.
A Novella In The Wings......
Last week inspiration came upon me for a new novella. A few hours with a fellow writer to craft a concise storyline enabled me to plot seven out of the ten chapters completely over this week, and I'm more than excited to get writing! (Whoa there Noddy......first things first.....) I did tackle the opening, not being able to resist, but have decided that I will only allow myself the pleasure of sneaking in work on the novella once my weekly word count goals have been reached on my novel. Let's just say that the dark, dangerous, brooding Baron I've conjured for this novella is currently consuming my free moments........mmmmm, de-lish!
Research subject number one displays ultra sexy body language....and those hands...."I can believable...", while subject number two has a physique delightful to behold.....
These two will still be here later....come back and enjoy them as often as you'd like.
