I started a new project last month that I will affectionately refer to as TAoCBS. I brought the first chapter to my critique group for a thumbs up or thumbs down vote. They voted up. Whew.
Those guys are really smart, though, and they mentioned many aspects to consider and work on. I knew my plot needed some filling out and filling in. Little did I know how much it needed.
Inspiration hasn't exactly been forthcoming.
Going on a long walk every day might help with that inspiration problem. Today, I will walk for sure.
In the mean time, I've been reading my previous work-in-progress (CBL) out loud to check for rhythm, flow and repeated words. I repeat words too often. (See?) 60,000 words is a lot say out loud (more repeated words). I've been indulging in herbal tea and peppermints.
