But We Can't Check Out
Why do I have this sudden feeling of deja vu?
Seeing as I just did a lengthy post a few days ago, and you're all probably tired of my voice, this will be quick status update. And so:
BIG DANG PROJECT:
Goal: Reach Midpoint by 7/31
I managed to complete Act I before the beginning of Round 3 (gasp), so now I'm plugging away at the first half of Act II. I've spun down the page like a crazed repelling enthusiast for the next few scenes and am now tap-tap-tapping away putting it into words. We're building walls around FK's hometown and dealing with the overflow of refugees, plus having a heart-to-heart talk with Mama Bear. I'm also spending some time going through Act I with the Red Pen of Death in anticipation of providing it to Beta readers and posting chapters to OWW.
KEEPERS OF THE FLAME #2
Goal: Finish Prep Work by 7/31
Finished redeveloping my plot yesterday, which involved a new Aristotle's Incline, a reworked Mythic Cycle, Spinning my revamped plot down the page and nailing down my sacred objects and attaching them to characters. I also used my spinning work to table up a chonology of scenes. Now it's on to reworking character.
Finished with my goal check-in commentary yesterday like a good little sponsor, and will continue the trend on today's linky list. Today I'm going to pull another First Chapter I've got queued in my list and get to work in anticipation of posting my review this weekend. I received a nice thank-you from my last review, and used an appropriate opening to participate in ROW80 as the anti-NaNoWriMo. My guest bloggity-like thingamajig went up at Literary Rambles yesterday, and garnered some terrific commentary.
So! Now it's time to cheer on the other brave participants! Make with the clicky, if you dare. Bwa-ha-haaaaa.
