I bring you *gasp* Writing News

It's been awhile, hasn't it? Let's see, what's been going on on my writing front?

Well, first there was a loooooooooooooong spell of Nuttin' Much. Then came two lovely writing-help offers from two lovely people. (*hugs frigg and kmkibble), which encouraged me to get back into wordslinging, albeit by dribbles and drabbles. frigg's comments have led me to trim some of the fat from the chapters she read, and yes, there was fat to be cut--5015 words of it, all without breaking a sweat--in hopes that it would help me tighten my focus and increase my momentum. Can't say, though, that I'm feeling rekindled passion for the project. Not yet.

So, what did I decide to do? Tackle NaNo. Yeah, that should be a torturefun-filled month. I have no direction, no set plot, no inkling of an ending; just a character and an incident that destroys her life and puts a price on her head. Throw her in the water--boiling, no less--and watch her swim, that seems to be plan for this one. I hope she's a swimmer and not a sinker.

    I know exactly what you mean. I once knew a woman who would read teh last chapter first to see if she wanted to give a book her time. While I hope to never get to that point, I do now see the value…

    When I was younger, I would usually finish a book I started, even if I didn't enjoy it. (Well, if I'd read more than just the first couple of pages, that is. Everyone can try a page or two as a test…
