The weather that is. I feel like my writing is heating up on the other hand. I finished a scene I’d been dreading because of what happens. But, it plays an important part not just in this story but also to set up another character’s story. I already know a good bit of her story even though it’s a couple down the line in this series. And I have another dreaded scene coming up as I head toward the climax. I’ll probably get to it tomorrow, or at least start it tomorrow.
I’m glad for the cool down. I got a text from my husband Friday wanting to know if I wanted to work the gate up at the racetrack yesterday. It’s a local track and he works for the rescue and clean up crew on race nights. They needed someone to work the gate for the pit, and I didn’t really have any excuse not to. It wasn’t too bad really. There were a few boring moments, particularly the last hour before I clocked out. I basically just sat there, tearing off stubs for the pit passes and making sure the people who tried to go through had the right wristband and ticket. But, it gave me a chance to do some people watching(and character sketching in my head) and block out some upcoming scenes for my WiP. And it got me out of the house. Plus I was able to watch the last couple races and even got to see a fight.
·Demons Rising: write 10000 words – Done! Actually managed 10552 for the week. I’ve written through chapter 23(of 30 planned) and have at least 10 more scenes to go. I may finish this week, but should certainly be done by the end of the month.
·find readers for Slow Revenge – I’ve found one and have sent her the first five chapters.
·Guarding the Heart: novel notebook – finished this on Thursday.
·Read: Not Until You Surrender (Roni Loren) – read this on Tuesday then read The Selkie Enchantress by Sophie Moss and The Disappearing Girl by Heather Topham Wood. I may have my goal of 100 books for the year finished by the end of the month. Shouldn’t be difficult as I only have 1 more book to read to reach this goal. So, I’ll probably be raising it.
