It took a rainy sky and super-talented Jen Osborn's awesome Wednesday challenge (see her cute badge in the sidebar there to the right) to get me to the computer today. If I haven't been doing stuff purging then my head has been lost in ideas and paints. I am happy in that place but I lose crazy chunks of time there. An hour feels like a minute. Why is that? Does this happen to you?
The deal with Jen's challenge is to take a picture of your workspace on Wednesday and share what you've been up to. I love this idea!
Ok, here was my morning:
That, my friends, is a picture of the novel, the work in progress, of the last few years. Scary, huh? What you see are all of my handwritten pages: in notebooks, legal pads, whatever I could find at the moment words struck. There are also words on the computer. So...I am sorting the handwritten papers into folders labeled ACT 1, ACT 2 and ACT 3. I have a special folder for research and so on. I am hoping this will help things progress in the direction of a completed something to eventually share. I feel good about this. The story is tightening up and I am loving every minute of this project.
