Progress Report (in which there is some progress)

Well, it’s been a busy week. Princess and I celebrated our 11th anniversary yesterday, AND…I actually finished a rough outline for my short story! (and the crowd goes wild!)

Yes, once I did some work on a character write-up for the protagonist, the plot seemed to come into focus more. Imagine that, having some character development was actually good for the story!

Next week, I’ll begin writing the story. Or rather, rewriting the story. I have a couple pages of a first draft that are totally awful. The opening paragraph isn’t bad, but the rest…yuck! I think I’ve left the story on the back burner for a while now because of this first paragraph. It was good, and yet didn’t work at the same time. So, like the wise man once said, kill your darlings. I will probably rework the opening or scrap it all together.

Hopefully there will be more good news to tell by the end of the week. In the meantime, keep cranking!
