Mid-Week Machinations & Insecure Writers
What's the 'craftiest' plot twist you've encountered in a paranormal story? What plot/storyline(s) do you like/not like within the paranormal genre?
It's Time For February's Insecure Writer's Post...
Greetings, comrades in insecurity! What troubles you this fine day? Wouldn't it be great to hear that no one has a singular vexation this first Wednesday in February?
I cannot answer for anyone else, but I find myself unable to conjure the least troubling thoughts. I'm having a blast, and expect it to continue! January surpassed any expectations I imagined, leaving me absolutely nothing to dare complain about. Believe me, if I dared to complain, it would simply provoke bad karma...ha! Not this girl....No Way!
* 1500-1800 words completed on story ending. I'll probably add at least ten more pages, adding around 3000 more by the week's end.
* Still waiting on cover design. Sigh. I'm bursting at the seams...
* Second read-through/edit will begin tonight/tomorrow. I want to nail down the areas where the story drags and evaluate for weak dialogue. Sharpening...it's a good thing.
* Two hour brain-storming session with my sister has some great details taking form for the new historical novella! No one can toss around plot options like my Claus...
