Hello fellow writers and dear friends,
I can’t believe it’s already the end of my 2nd day here! Granted, I arrived around 6pm last night, but still. Whoosh! Time flies when you’re all alone with your novel. So, here’s where I’m at, as of 10:44pm!
Monday: (2 chapters revised)
- Settle in, set up writing desk, explore local stores, come home with healthy food, finish up email so I can focus, find the local library, get exercise after 6 hours in a bus, watch a history show about the Moors in Spain (and take notes – as this is quite relevant to my novel), scan The Hunger Games for inspiration on shortness and “to the pointedness,” eat, take a bath, do some work to promote the passage of I-522, AND polish the new chapter 6 (which is comprised of the old chapter 6 & 7)
- Long walk (truth is, I got lost…), buy more ambrosia apples and discover raw, organic pecans and cashews and Dagoba Chocolate Chips, revise old chapter 8 & 9 into a new chapter 7, take another walk (not get lost this time…), buy those yummy nuts and chocolate, scan the library but find nothing to check out (boo-hoo), revise old chapter 10 into a new chapter 8, work to promote the passage of I-522, work to promote increased awareness about community and personal health, and review my “bare bones” outline for my novel, The Ghost Lords!
