June is nearly over and I needed to get a post on the map. I can’t leave a gaping hole in the sidebar – even if mother nature has decided not to bring any summer to Seattle until nearly July. I’d obsess about my missing month of June for the rest of the year and we can’t be having that.
In terms of actual writing, I edited up to and some of Chapter 3 in Wishful Thinking. Passed it to my beta/husband/amazing guy and he gave me some great feedback. I’m waiting until the next chapter to see if he still thinks the same way about one of the characters. In the meantime, I’ve been writing new ideas in the “idea file” for future use. How fun it would be if I could mix the ideas up.
I’ve also dabbled with writing by the seat of my pants – no outline, no plan. Just a story I’ve started and will keep going until I see where it wants to go. If nothing else, it’s consistent writing and flexing the spontaneous muscle I let stiffen up most of the time.
But enough of the stuff I’ve done that counts as productivity – the fun stuff was, well, fun. And needed. Started the month off with a good dose of camping fun. This year, I’ve learned that late spring/early summer is just too volatile for tent camping out here. So off I went to a heated cabin with a futon bed and table/chair set. Oh, and electricity. That’s a must.
Dance recitals, end of school year activities, planting/gardening, Alan Wake for the XBox 360, way too many blogs to follow, IronMan2, Green Day:Rock Band…. it’s been a fun month. A nice break.
Now, bring on the summer. I’ll be writing out in the sun.
