Thursday Thoughts

Next year, I will buy the latest Jasper Fforde novel and this will be Thursday NEXT thoughts for a week. So there.

Not accomplished much this week. Been swamped and snarly - connected, but not a complete 1:1 correlation.

I have consistently kept up with my self-imposed boot camp, though, and turning out some starts that look like they could be fun stories. When I'm done, I'll browse back through and pick one to work on - for now. Amusingly, there are a lot of stories with romance aspects, more so than I usually do, because Plots Unlimited is heavily weight to those kinds of plots and subplots. Of course, I enjoy romance - every novel I've done that I can remember has had a romantic subplot or five, and I do short stories that either feature it or involve it - but it's never been a central concern. (That said, look for "The Weatherwoman" in a couple days, and that IS definitely a romance.)

I finished rereading the first six or seven chapters of Scylla and Charybdis. I had forgotten I made Valasca the chief doctor, which makes some changes to the timbre of this more recent sequence. Ready to pound the pavement in the next few days.

Ha! I get snarly when I'm swamped, too! Good luck with your writing. :)
