Sunny and cold
Got a tiny bit of work done on Tokens and Affections yesterday, and a bit more this morning. Didn’t get anything done on “The Merry”. Very frustrating.
I’ve taken a slight tangent for ten or so pages in Tokens, which reflects and refracts on the main story and sows the seeds for something else. I have to be careful that it doesn’t pull focus, and doesn’t feel like it has nothing to do with the main story – because it does, and it reflects character traits that are important farther down.
I need to do a smidge more Christmas shopping at the bookstore this weekend, and then I am DONE. I also need to get to JoAnn’s for a couple of things.
Back to the page – I want to get some more work done on both Tokens and “The Merry” before I leave for the show.
Even though it looks like Tokens is almost done, word count wise, I’m simply trying to boost my ego by letting it hit 100% and THEN pushing back the count.
Oh, yeah, and there’s no hot water in the building today – again.
