I wrote the sweetest 1,000 words scene today. Super innocent and adorable, although I’m not sure it will actually make it in the final draft. It all depends on how well it fits once I’ve written up to it and past it. That Keane song “Spiralling” and this picture of Aly Michalka (Teagan in my eyes) inspired it and while I think it really highlights the development of the friendship between Bryce, Brynn, and Teagan (which is important primarily for Teagan) I’m not sure how important as a whole it actually is to the story. It’s really cute though. Maybe it will be a bonus scene to share one day if it doesn’t make the cut.
I also wrote a little over 2,000 words yesterday for a scene I was mulling over last week, but thinking about it now I know there definitely needs to be some changes. Like Teagan has a dog and he’s with her in the scene, but I failed to mention this and that’s a huge error on my part because any dog fans would immediately catch the mistake. No biggy though, I wasn’t finished with it anyway so I can make the minor adjustments and wrap it up hopefully in the next few days.
I’ve been writing a couple of chapters at the same time because rather than let one stump me for long I just sit it aside and move on. Now it’s got me straddling three at the same time though which kind of sucks. I am really close to completing one of them though after what I wrote this past weekend. I also finished making all of my redline edits (on the actual word documents) so those chapters are good to go. I will not look at them again until I read the entire thing through.
Outside of writing, some of my new books came today, but somehow not in the right order so I have to wait before I continue with the next book in the Dark-Hunter series. But I can start reading my Dark-Hunter Manga today (which is backwards BTW – I did not expect that!)
Also, I have a small update on the Mayo Thief (for those who were entertained by his antics). He bought a new bottle. A large one too and didn’t even mark it as just his. I’d say our little prank taught him a lesson, even if we didn’t get to enjoy the fire we were expecting out of him.
And lastly, I’m going to be starting a “Post your Bookcase” chain style thing probably on the first of September. I was waiting for Heather (edgyauthor) to get home so she could participate too and even though she’s finally back, I’d like to give her time to *clean her room, like she stated in her last post* and settle in. I’d also like the rest of my books to arrive so my shelf is looking full 😉 Be ready to post yours too friends. I want to lavish in all the books you have and I want. I know I only enable my book wanting/buying habit further, but oh well.
Peace – Sarah
