I’ve read the first draft of Mystery in Morocco – at least as much of it as there is. I feel excited by it. The first third is good and introduces the characters gradually. I found the last third so exciting that I just had to finish reading a chapter before I went to sleep…even though I know the story because I wrote it 😀 The middle must go because nothing happens.
Today I’ve spent:
2 hours on my short story (4 scenes revised).
1.5 hours on Mystery in Morocco
I found a folder with Holly Lisle’s Create a Character Clinic – had forgotten all about starting this with my Mystery in Morocco characters! It’s reminding me about my characters and I’m making changes in line with changes needed to the story.
Have also done 1 hour’s exercise and some housework but now, as it’s nearly 5pm I’m feeling totally whacked and I need a break 🙂
I hope you’ve all done something towards your projects, whatever they are.
