It’s Tuesday and it feels like Wednesday or later, this is the rare time where this is a good thing.
I cruised by 35K yesterday and my current goal is to hit 40K by tomorrow night (natch). I’ve got some good stuff on deck and I can easily fill 15K with it. I am good to go.
Writing group on Sunday was fun and productive. The weather was perfect to sit outside, so I made the most of it. I got to discuss writing and writing related matters with two of the most intelligent people I know. I got some great feedback as well.
They managed to put into words what I sensed was wrong with my short story “Kenneth” and I intend to do a serious rewrite in September taking those notes in consideration. That was a great learning experience. I will try to do better and I can’t wait to see the outcome!
We brainstormed my WIP and came up with some really great ideas and some things that I need to think about. More and more, I see that I’ve neglected my characters in planning this thing. It’ll be something to consider when I rewrite in a few months.
I also got a chance to discuss their works, which is something that I’m very interested in. I want to help as much as they help me. In helping them, I learn.
All in all, it was a success and charred meat was had in celebration! It made for a great day in a great weekend.
