Today, I have admitted defeat where Pompeii Fire is concerned. After three years, I have 35K words. Clearly the story is not working the way I wanted. I’m moving it to the proverbial parking lot and trying something else entirely.
I have the beginning inklings of a story for Bronwen, one of the side characters in Rose in Bloom, and already have 2.5K words after just a couple of days’ writing.
It’s time to stop banging my head against the wall of one story and let others come out.
If my Facebook memories are anything to go by, I always have a head cold at this time of the year. 2022 is no exception. I’m not collapsed in bed or anything, but I am working from home.
I am, however, adequately befogged that I forgot to do Music Monday yesterday. So, here’s a bonus track by my favorite guitarist, Laurence Juber. Enjoy!
Hi, everyone. I’m back from my mom’s place. She’s recovering well after her surgery, and I felt comfortable with leaving her in the hands of good friends who are checking in on her, bringing food, etc. I had a great visit with the friend who drove me to the airport, and I’m now pretty much caught up on day job things.
I’m off all next week, with MD, DMV, and hairdresser appointments arranged in the early part of the week. I’m looking forward to a quiet, peaceful Thanksgiving holiday.
