Day Three
Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

Hellion’s back. Need I say more?

But I did manage to get the paragraphs I’d written into some semblance of order with proper transitions, and they made sense (always a good thing). I completed a rough draft of chapter one and dove into two. I got to thinking after I closed down for the day that I was making the opening more complicated writing-wise than I needed to with this darn flashback, so I may turn the first few paragraphs into a prologue that is the future event so I can dispense with all that past perfect crap. I’ve done it (flashbacks) many times before—and effectively (I hope)—but this time it just felt damn hard.

Okay, so all of the above is pretty boring to read about, but since I’ve been on this retreat I haven’t had anyone to talk to about the writing, so I’m pretty much talking to myself here. Wish I found me more fascinating!

    LOL I guess I’ll have to call you tonight. Wouldn’t want you to have no one to talk to. *cackle* Besides, I have a new idea for a story involving ghosts. Want to bounce it off you.

    I start my own writing retreat on Sunday!! I’m excited.

    I have 10 days off work, adn I’ve told my family and friends I have a deadline. :) It’s actually scary how well they leave me alone when I write.

    Since I am left so alone, One of my BFF emails me usually to ask. “Answer me so I know you’re alive, and haven’t fallen in the shower and cracked your head open.”

    Sasha!
    I hope you get a ton of work done during your “retreat.” Mine hasn’t been as productive as I’d hoped. Maybe I need to be in my own surroundings with my established routine. *sigh*
