Snippet Sunday

I don't know if it is because I'm not in a writing headspace now (and haven't been for a more than a year now, I think), I'm having the hardest time getting this chapter right. It is the same one I've been going over and over, trying to find an opening that I like, that leads to a sequence of events that is all the things an introduction to a POV needs to be.

Instead of writing this week, I've been thinking a lot, hashing out fuzzy plot bits in hopes of gaining clarity for the opening. I've come up with some important stuff, but so far, the shape of the scene--what needs to be in it, what will interest and not overwhelm the readers--is still escaping me.

I finally had the idea of approaching it as if I plan to tell only Baxente's story, as if there are not four other POVs in the trilogy. I think I'm on to something and will try to pursue it more this week.

However, the Christmas season has begun, and we're doing advent with Sprout this year. I plan on posting every day (maybe) about what activity we are doing. So between doing the activities and other projects (like sewing), we'll see how much time I have make for writing.
