Update on… Things?

   Posted by: Faith   in Rye Thoughts

flu20_2First, THANK YOU to everyone who weighed in on my voice dilemma. I wrote through it for a bit, then tried some brainstorming, then asked some questions… I haven’t done the interview thing in a formal way yet, so that’s next on the docket. I’m also going back in the story and trying to figure out if maybe things went wrong a little earlier. Or the issue may be with a change of tense. We’ll see. Either way, I’ll figure it out one of these days!

Beyond that, I’ve caught that stupid cold that’s going around and haven’t managed to get a whole heck of a lot accomplished.

Included in that pile of non-accomplishment is figuring out what I’m going to write for NaNoWriMo this year. I have little flashcards with all my novel ideas on it, and no idea which one to pick. I may just draw a big target and throw the cards on it one at a time. Whichever lands closest to the center “wins”.

How’s that for “writing to the market”? HAH.

Anyway, I’ll save you lovelies from my potential rambling (could be delirium from the sickness setting in) and send you off with this word of wisdom:


Remember that, the next time you have a sore throat. Then tell me it’s not a word of wisdom.

Popsicles sound perfect for after I’ve sang… Thanks.

BTW. the interviews don’t have to be all formal. In fact I’d say they shouldn’t be. Just keep it light and conversational. :-)

Let me know how it goes. Heck, if you need to, feel free to contact me and I’ll help you. I’ve been told I’m quite talented at it.

Barbara — I really *should* use NaNo to continue rewrites, but instead I’m going to try to finish the rewrites before November, which may kill me. ARGH.

Misha — Yes, that’s another perfect time for popsicles! I’ll keep you posted on the character interview. I think I may have solved the problem by changing the tense and the way the story is told from his perspective, but if it turns out my crit partners hate it, it’ll be back to the drawing board… and onto the interview!
