Progress is slow....but first must check I am not cheating...



I am full of diversions as is normal with me, and today I got back to writing. I have this awful horrible feeling that I am cheating, so have decided I will go and ask the Forum on NaNo...

What I have done is write about the last couple of awful days through the eyes of a character - so it really is biographical - but I have ended things differently and taken a what if stance....

My conscious is pricking me, but rationally I think this is a sensible way forward, and I can get back on track over the weekend. I now have two "scenes", and my original Blog and the authorly comments.. what a blinkin mess. A bit like my mind and my life really :-)

I am very frustrated about leaving behind Secret Deeds again.. and I have a character stuck at a piano - an elderly lady, who is reminiscing about a babe in arms - now who the heck is she? I am becoming delusional through tiredness I suspect.

I have decided I am going to book a long weekend off before the end of the month and write deliriously happy prose as a kind of "constitutional"

A long weekend to write? Sounds like a great idea. That would be tremendous not only for my word count but for my soul :)

You say you may be delusional? Well at least your delusions are making it to the paper ;)
