Tomorrow is the D&D game I run. Usually this happens on Sundays, but Cheyenne would like to play and the only time this is possible because of his new work schedule is on Saturdays. Now I need to change gears mentally and work in a completely different vein.
Every time a certain area pops up the WIP comes to mind and I (1) feel guilty I’m not working on it, and (2) think of how the scenario could actually work in the book.
Since the complete first draft of the story is handwritten, I realized yesterday note pages and unused scene pages are taking up quite a bit of space in the notebook/binder being used. To solve this I’m ordering another binder from Amazon just for the unnecessary pages. I don’t want to throw them away, or shred them. because some scenes can be useful later.
Right now the poor love interest is looking at the fact her mother isn’t nice. in fact, her mother has aligned herself firmly with evil. She did so willingly and sacrificed her husband and the girl’s father to do so.
The current scene isn’t exactly perfect – this is why there are final drafts and notes. I am also thinking the second book may center on her character, the love interest’s, and what she has to do in order to save the kingdom and thwart her mother’s desire for power and position. (I still can’t help but feel guilty for messing this poor girl’s world up. Crap happens to good people. It depends on how the people handle said crap that’s most important. You either lose your humanity and hope, or you come through it stronger and better able to handle what life throws at you in the future.)
Well, it is time to get down to work. Hope your Friday is wonderful and your weekend awesome!🍀
