Oops - got distracted by summer. Today was 21C and sunny for a while, so I took advantage of it to get out and about. We may not have many more of those before next spring. I spent the day wanderin the hood and stopping at various cafes for coffees and/or beers, reading a book and tanning my face and arms. The book is for our sci-fi book club - we meet Sunday so I had to get at it.
- Did another story for Flash Fiction Fridays - a western, with a list of words to be included
- NaNoWriMo - OK - have a plot idea now, yay! It will be based on this Flash Fiction, featuring some of my Fairy Tale Folk. There's a plot workshop tomorrow night downtown, maybe I'll attend. Need to work on details of both plot and characters.
- I bought an editing program, Master Edit. You load in a scene/chapter and it assesses various elements, such as sentence length, weak or repeating words and phrases, and conjunctions. $30 one time charge, and site also has links to a number of writing lessons.
- Read Mindscan, by Robert Sawyer, for sci-fi club. Interesting concept, but got a little preachy at times, once he had my attention. Have two others at top of the pile, If You Want to Write, by Ueland, and How to Grow a Novel, by Stein. Both were recommended to me, need to take a few minutes on each to see if I want to read them now, or later, or never.
