Happy Sunday all. It’s been a pretty relaxing weekend around my place. Got in a bunch of writing on a couple of projects so that is always a major plus. The biggest one was getting back into Living Victorious 2, tentatively titled The Bass. This one has been giving me a little grief over the last couple of weeks, but I think it’s back on track. I got myself hung up a little on one scene so I did something I’ve never done before – I jumped to the next chapter to keep writing like that scene was done.
I’m still working on the scene that caused so much grief, but it’s not my sole focus. It’s the sort of scene that can be added in later on since while it’s a necessary scene to the progression of the book, it’s not a scene that makes or breaks the story line. So onward I continue in writing the stuff that pushes the story forward, and creates complications for my characters. Oh yes, there will be many problems for the two leads of this book. The biggest, and deadliest, distance. Since the lead male is in a band they have to tour. The lead female has a job that doesn’t allow for much flexibility to go with him. This will test their resolve to be with one another, but if they make it (which is sort of a given knowing me) then it will make their relationship all the more solid.
Not much work on the paranormal story I have on my WIP list, but I am puttering on it off and on. It helps to pull out of one story to poke at another to get the brain churning. It’s why I pulled another WIP out of the “draft” stage to something a little more solid. While I may not get it done any time soon, it’s another welcome diversion to get my mind working a different angle so that when I head back into LV2 I’m not sluggish on the plot. Not that this method works for most people. Usually it doesn’t work for me either but on this one book it’s been very helpful. Let’s my mind take a breather, and allows the muse to regroup for when I dive back in.
Well that’s about all the news I have to share currently. I need to dash out for some more necessary supplies to the writing process (pop and snacking foods) before I buckle down again at the keyboard so I’ll end this post quick like. Have a fantastic afternoon and evening ~ Moira
