Life has been busy since we bought our house. Most of my weekends and spare evenings have been spent sanding, painting, talking with repair pros, or demolishing moldy cabinets in the cellar.
Fortunately, real progress is being made on our house, and we’re on our way to moving in in the next month or so. I’ll post some photos soon.
Unfortunately, my writing — all of my writing — has fallen by the wayside.
Life happens, and I’m genuinely excited about our house and proud of the sweat (and maybe a little blood) we’ve put into it so far.
But damn it I’ve missed writing!
My beta draft for The Warden of Everfeld: Memento is at 183,000 words currently. It seems like this draft will wrap up at more than 190,000 words, but I can worry about trimming it down later.
I’m still stuck on the final conflict. That’s where I left off about a week ago, the last time I really sat down and wrote anything of significance.
I’ve started to go back and rework previous sections, because the pieces just weren’t fitting together. I think I’ve figured out how I want this to shake out. I just need a few hours to get it done.
I told Present Wife that I’m going to write tonight. She totally understands and accepts that proposition, because she’s amazing. So the pressure is on.
Writing Goal for Tonight! — Finish the final conflict and move towards the resolution
And damn the word count!
