I am really excited about working on this novel again, which is a good sign. There are some major holes that need to be fixed, and my mind is spinning with all the different options right now.
It’s been a while since I’ve looked at this manuscript, and I’m pleased that I still like the concept and the characters. That makes me a happy writer girl.
It’s weird to look at it as draft five. Originally, I had two different stories intertwining in this novel. Last draft, I yanked out one entirely. I hope to be able to write a companion book to this one with that storyline. And maybe a third book where the two meet. I’m a sucker for trilogies, it seems.
Also, this novel needs a new name. I have no idea what it is yet.
Getting up early failed this morning, mostly due to sleep interruptions due to the husband getting called out to work. I won’t complain, because I wasn’t the one who had to actually go *out* and work. Poor guy hasn’t had hardly any sleep all weekend. It sucks.
The weather is continuing to suck, too. Really hot and humid today. Our air con (evaporative) is just barely working, and allowing me to not melt completely. Cleaning the house this morning was an interesting exercise, though. I kind of want to put in a separate reverse cycle cooling unit somewhere on days like today.
Tomorrow is going to be not fun, too. Weather will be not quite as hot, but just as humid. And I have a doctor’s appointment smack in the middle of the day. I don’t know if any decent work is going to get done tomorrow. We’ll see. Maybe I can keep my brain cool enough
