Current Project:The Baby's Bodyguard
Status:page 226 (I think)
Hey everyone, it's that time again, time for (drum roll....) Saturday Check-In!!!!
I had a real productive streak at the beginning of the week, then production fell off as sleep issues (thank you Uber Puppy) set in. By the end of this weekend, I'm hoping to have another twenty pages or so. I'm not worried about finishing the book on time as it's gathered its own head of steam, but I do have a few, er, chasms behind me that are going to need a little tender tough love to figure out. Quite by accident this week (while talking to a friend), I thought of a more meaningful way to impart an important piece of news between the characters and then in the middle of the night woke up with what will follow the reveal. Don't you love this stage? It's challenging and very fulfilling when the characters assume dimensions that make them stand out. You all know the feeling.
Hope your week was a good one; I'm anxious to hear if you're happy with what your accomplishing. If you are getting ready for November Nano is there something you do in preparation? I was just curious if you try to have the plot of scenes or characters firmly in mind before the month begins.
