Been failing to plug away at the novel, which usually means I need to fix something. In this case: the plot.
I’ve been seat-of-the-pantsing the current Work-in-Progress novel long enough. I like it, I’m interested in it — I’ve bought-in, as they say. Phase 1, falling in love, is done. Time to have an idea where I’m heading.
I sat down tonight and cooked up a pretty solid-looking plot. 60-or-so scenes in mind, following a three-act structure.
It’ll change, of course. I’d be scared if it didn’t. But it also helps me know all is not void and darkness. Yes, just like the working title of this one, “Sometimes There is Light.”

I was so sad when I read the news. I've been lkooing at photographs of her on various sights, and she was a true beauty. Poised, elegant and refined.
