Lammas

First of all, happy Lammas to all!  This is personally one of my favorite holidays, and I plan on celebrating in style.  Also the new moon is great news for my writing.  New moon and a holiday?  I shall be in a writing flurry for the rest of the day I’m sure, talk about an energy peak.

Now for a novel update, I worked on editing a few more chapters and I think I’m losing steam.  I am editing, but finding that I’m not changing too much.  Whereas in the beginning I was adding about three times more stuff to it than I was taking out, I am not finding too much to add or subtract anymore.  I don’t know if that’s just a lack of focus or just that there isn’t too much editing to be done on this bit.  But regardless my beta *waves* has been indispensable for this editing.  Although he seems to think its all perfect, which I know isn’t true…but he humors my ego anyway.  At this rate I will be done editing this first time long before November when Nano rolls around.  And I have a pretty good idea what I want to base my novel this year on, we’ll have to see I could come up with something better later on.

This weekend I need to start working on my next writing assignment for my class.  Its interesting as I’m supposed to write the beginning only of a short story and give a synopsis of the whole thing.  That is difficult as I usually don’t write sequentially that way.  Usually I will write whatever scene strikes my fancy, then move on to the next scene I like…and so on.  Then I will string them all together during editing.  I can’t really do that this time, as I have to have the beginning.  We’ll see how it goes.

And now, for some shameless self promotion before I wrap it up for the day.  I’ve written a few more Helium articles, so links will abound!

I love writing the debatable topics.  I am overly opinionated so I love being able to choose a side to debate.  I wish you all a happy Lammas today, and a happy Friday…hooray for the weekend!  ~Stef
