New words! WOOT! 1262 wordcount for a new scene in Chapter Twenty-Five of Broken Trails, wherein Lainey’s first qualification run (the Kuskokwim 300) is detailed. She eats snow. Not by choice. LOL!
Started editing the next scene of that chapter, as well. Not finished yet. I need to show more of the residual awkwardness between Lainey and Thom Fuller, the result of Lainey’s drinking binge the previous month. I’ll continue on Saturday. (Tonight is Poison Night – arthritis meds – and I’m going to be worthless on Friday. Friday will be my official day off of writing from here on out, I think.)
I’ve been reading the Blood Books by Tanya Huff lately. Working on number four – Blood Pact. I like them better than the television show they inspired. (Was it True Blood? Don’t remember.) Saw the first episode of that series and, while it followed the book quite well, I didn’t get into the characters or the sense of anticipation. The book covers several days, so I think the loss came from cramming so much material into the one or two hour block required for TV.
Last night after work, I did some editing on my website. I discovered that while there was a link to a short story called ‘Dancing,’ it had never been uploaded to the site. The information page for On Azrael’s Wings also had the wrong excerpt (it showed Castle Walls, instead,) so I changed that, as well.
