so last night I finished BP ch 1 edit and I THOUGHT I posted about it.

But it seams the post got eaten.

I did some trimming. Ch1 1 started with 2985 words and is 2968 words. I added some I took away... I hope it improved it. Trying to get into Zander's head again. I always enjoy writing/working on his stories.

Now on to ch 2.

What makes a person to decide to write on one project over another?

They say to write what calls to you but I've got so many screaming at me that it feels like there is a deafening roar in my ears. Then there are the old standbys, the stories that are familiar and dear to me as a loyal friend. The stories where I know where it is going. It is just a matter of writing it.


As I said in my last post, when things go haywire my brain latches onto Zander's story. It has changed and morphed, twisting and growing.

And yet again I opened BP reading over the story, working on a risque scene which may never actually be included in the book itself. Reading and pondering over how I can make the story better and debating on whether or not I just need to restart the whole damn thing.


Not like I'm going to do ANYTHING before we move aside from reading it and taking notes.

I have too many ideas.

so I'm in between writing projects and so, predictably, I am poking and prodding at BP again.

Damnit I LOVE this weird epicish story.

I adore Zander. Even if he is a man whore. People will probably bitch. Oh well. This is his story and when I am tired, drained and stressed it is usually his story I turn to. After all no matter how crazy stuff gets in my rl it is nothing compared to the shit I put Zander through.

Bastard Prince is sortof a pillgramage. It is an epic story following the life of a runnaway prince. I ground to a halt in writing it when I hit the really tough emotional part of the book. You know the part that starts everything falling apart for him.


I picked it back up a few days ago in an effort to try to keep from starting working on the NaNo.

I just wrote one of the hardest scenes in this book. I cried.

Maybe it is just me.

There will be more. Lots more. Cities will fall betrayals will happen. Hearts will break.


I'm writing again! :D

Writing Schedule through Dec.

Mind you this is very tentative as we are also planning a move.


Editing.
Oh man I have so much stuff that is just languishing on the hard drive (flashdrive actually). Playing for the Dead needs to be edited.


Writing/Finishing.

Last night I wrote up a list of half finished projects that really need to get finished. Bastard Prince, though smooshed with the old version of Crossroads still has placecard areas that need to be finished. So I would really like to finish it.


Fresh Writing.
NaNo.
A survival type romance set in a Polynesian-based culture. Mind you it is a fantasy world, not earth but it has a very Island feel to it. This is for fun, a different type of story. A huge writing exercise for me.

Gots to go.

I just blew an entire evening re-reading old projects. The theory was that I was going to list off all of my projects and what needs to be done for them to be 'finished'. The reality was I opened up Crossroads and found myself doing a few editing things. Just fixing punctuation mainly but also adjusting some phrasing.

I finally tore myself from Crossroads, got the word count then opened Bastard Prince and lost about twenty min re-reading over a few fight scenes and fixing some punctuation. I forced myself to get the wordcount and open another Avaria project but not before thinking that some of it wasn't as sucky as I thought it was.

Then another idea struck me.

For nano, seeing as I have actually won it a couple times, perhaps I should just chose a half-finished or mostly finished project **cough Bastard Prince cough** and use Nov to finish it. My goal for BP for instance is something like 120k and it is sitting at 60975k.

I dunno, I do have a nano idea I was thinking about. (actually drew a map of it at church today **hangs head**)

My NaNo idea (officially) is about a group of tribal people who have to flee their Island home because it goes Krakatoa on them. It is also a romance (I don't write anything but :P ) and I really like this idea and I adore my main characters and even have a bit of an outline to it.

So what to do. I suppose it is stupid to sign up for nano at all. Nov is our busiest month. But I love the energy, the friendships I have made through nano have been wonderful. I love cheering people on I love seeing people's progress. I can't NOT do it, you know?

Anyways, I think what I'll do is poke at BP until Nov then write the Survival story then when I finish it (I don't see it being longer than 50 tbh) go back to BP to try to finish it.

**shrugs**

Ok time to go to bed.
