Ray gave me an early Christmas gift, a book on description and setting, a few days ago. I’ve read most of it now. It was interesting but mostly served to tell me that I’ve already got the essentials, I just need to elaborate some.
I’ve been writing slowly. as you can tell from my sidebar count. Still haven’t cracked the ‘write-at-work’ barrier, and my lamp burned out in my office, and other excuses.
Basically, though, I’m reaching the blahs I apparently always reach in the middle of a novel, when I’m ready to be done and, in this case, working on rewrites. Hopefully further polishing of the development process will fix that. We’ll see. Meanwhile, I have at least another 45k words to write.
