Did more revisions on the printed page, and updated some of it. It still needs to be compiled, but the thing was to get things down. Later that night, I wrote what I thought were good and simple descriptions of areas. I know it will reduce my word count, but that’s fine. I can always add more. For the moment, the writing is having a “cool down” period so I hope to start up later, or when inspiration hits me.
On a side note, I joked with a friend on how much I love to torture my main character(s). It’s true, there’s some suffering going on, but they typically have to overcome their struggles. I haven’t done a noir/crime type character, but I’m guessing if I keep torturing characters, one day, one of my stories will have a bleak ending. For the moment I’m not looking for bleak, it’s a tale of triumph over adversity, which is a repeating theme I like. Being swallowed by adversity would be a whole different theme, and kind of scary.
I have some other things to get done, so I gotta go. Just wanted to put the blog post down, and dip off into some library adventures.
As always, happy creative endeavors.
