Last week's goals:

Create a better subplot for a key supporting character: Grr, still no.

Finish the rough draft, minus the subplot: No, but almost! I re-outlined the very last section of the book and did a mock-up of the scenes. Down to the final five scenes:)At last, a completed novel is on the horizon...I may actually be learning to finish things!

This week's goals:

Take care of that pesky supporting character.

Finish the rough draft!!

Do a happy dance.

Good one Owasm.


I managed to work once on my two WIPs. Interesting enough both are involved with a fight with a super natural creature. Completely different creatures though.

I rewrote a few sentences on one so I added more new words to one than the other. But it's still only about fifty to a hundred-twenty-five words to each.


Two Struggles is still in the hands of the critters. One suggested more emotion in one sub-scene and I decided it would be better-she my MC's inner fears--and be a hint for a later scene.


That's it for novels.
