SPECIAL EDITION – REMJUWRIMO UPDATE

“She looked so familiar to me, but I couldn’t place her… But she reminded me of someone…         It couldn’t be her, though. She was dead, we had all watched her die. Floating away like that in the swamp. Her lavender dress billowed up like a balloon, her dark hair fanning out on the black water. We had made a pact, Pearl and Scarlett and me, never to tell anyone what happened.”

 

I jumped back into Scarlett’s story without stopping to think how long I had been “away” from her—three or four weeks. I didn’t account for taking time to have a read through to catch up with her. At roughly 21K words and 60 pages it took me two day reading aloud to get through the MS.

 

 

 

So now I’m in the groove and managed a few words Saturday…

Still not on track but it’s a decent start. While I like to take Sunday as a “day of rest” (whatever that would look like) I do like to stay with my writing. Yesterday, however, was an exception, totally out of the norm for me…

… and as you can imagine I did not make my goal of 2000 words. I wrote a few words (185) and will jump back in today.

I’m excited about this story, this series, and look forward to spending time with Scarlett to discover her story and share it with you.

 

 

I exited the fading lushness of the little park, the leaves of golden and crimson holding tight to the only home they had ever known. Was I now doing the same? Holding tight to what was familiar to me, Bastille House, and Fontaine’s iron rule? Was Bastille to me as those branches were to the leaves? Was I destined to flutter away from Bastille as the leaves surely would flutter to the ground?

 

“I’ve always had voices—er, stories in my head. I once said I should write them all down so someone could write them someday. I had no idea at the time that someone was me!”

SPECIAL EDITION – REMJUWRIMO

 

“She looked so familiar to me, but I couldn’t place her… But she reminded me of someone…         It couldn’t be her, though. She was dead, we had all watched her die. Floating away like that in the swamp. Her lavender dress billowed up like a balloon, her dark hair fanning out on the black water. We had made a pact, Pearl and Scarlett and me, never to tell anyone what happened.”

 

I’mma give it another go, the personal 50K in 30 days challenge. RemJuWriMo. In April I thought if I did less on the blog I’d have more time to write my stories. And theoretically I should have. But the mind does strange things (and life does stranger things) and although I did get a bunch of words written—I did get a respectable 23K words—but the story needs to be 100K+ AND the third book needs to get started. See my dilemma???

 

Yes, it’s all self-imposed deadlines. And yes, I can always move it back. Thing is, if I did push it / them back, it would have to be a whole year—the series is Seasons, and Book 1 is Summer. Yeah, I did that to myself. Er, I mean, they—they—did this to me. The characters. At least it’s one ginormous story, split into four “installments!” All the same peeps (mostly), the same setting, same research. That helps.

 

So Seasons is a go. The Long Shadows of Summer (see?) is on target for August, and The Tilting Leaves of Autumn will be ready for November.

BLOGWORDS – 27 May 2017 – NEW WEEK NEW FACE NEW MONTH NEW ME – SPECIAL EDITION – SWAMP MODE

NEW WEEK NEW FACE NEW MONTH NEW ME – SPECIAL EDITION – SWAMP MODE – writing recovery continues

 

Bronchitis is GONE—PRAISE GOD—and RECOVERY MODE

is now SWAMP MODE,

aka CAVE TIME

as in WRITING CAVE, which we writers are notorious for hiding out in to get some words done, as in writing.

 

This story, though, this series, is set in a tenuous, as in fabricated setting, sort of a mash up of river and marsh / swamp, otherwise known as black river which is prevalent in the South. Saisons is a town somewhere between Columbia and Charleston, along the Santee River, close enough to the ocean to host marshes.

Ergo, SWAMP MODE!! Ergo, WRITING MODE. As in #AMWRITING, gotta make some words.

 

Interviews are back with a fun feature this Thursday (contain your excitement) but Wreading Wednesdays and What’s in Your Kitchen are still suspended. RemApWriMo flopped, sort of, but I have designated June as a second chance, RemJUWriMo!

 

Did I mention, IT’S GOOD TO BE INDIE!!!
