Doing the work, but you drop that ONE thread,,,
Maybe I was mean,,,
Maybe I was distracted,,,
Or maybe I just didn’t type fast enough,,,,
This morning, coffee cup in hand, Mac in the lap, and. ‘wheres Athena???’
Its pretty silent in my head right now,,,, Maybe I have enough of her story written out, or jotted in notes, or,,, but,,, She’s not here today,,,, It’s jarring, Almost like losing that irritating friend that you somewhat sorta liked being around because they kept you on edge, just enough, without pushing you over: then one day, just gone,,, It leaves a void, not as deep as losing a loved one, but, something is missing and you can feel it.
Lots of notes. and thats unusual for this pantser, (and part of my goals thing from the turn of the year, ‘be more pro, stop relying on gut, and take notes’). so no, the story is NOT dead in the water, Actually, there is quite a bit of it written that YOU haven’t seen yet and even if I hadn’t taken notes, I would be able to pull some rabbit out the mess that is there. I have intro, crisis and tension built, but not the resolution as yet, so it could go several different ways,
but it may take a little longer now,,,, Unless Teena comesback/wakesup/climbs out of that mental hallway she wasn’t supposed to wander down in the first place/whatever,,,,
BUT, heres the fun part for you. I am not writing in Scrivener this time around. I busted out all what you have read so far in Vellum, and have options to post this in different formats. I am thinking I will make it a separate page with an option for DOCX, PDF or EPUB, and you get to choose how you want to read it, including in HTML as a webpage if thats what you would prefer. And Released under Creative Commons, so “Free” Again, like that taking notes thing, this is part of my learning curve to become ‘more pro’ since writing the stories is just the meat of the job, not the nuts and bolts, bones and cartilage, of the ‘job’.
