The UF ground to a screeching halt. Why? I'm not sure honestly. The idea is there, I think I am missing something in the translation between brain and computer though.

It is marinating and I have taken BP off the shelf and poked at it a bit. After some poking and realizing a few things I also realized something else. I am truly LOVING BP.

So I've decided while I let my subconscious work on the UF idea I'll do some editing/rewriting of BP because at this point, when I haven't written much since the move I just want to work on something. Moving takes a lot out of you you know?

Something that needs to be fixed with bp is the emotion. The darker the story gets the more detached I seem to be from the mc. A scene which should have been heart-wrenching fell very flat due to lack of emotion.

Definitely need to work on that.

So as of right now BP is sitting at 60,974. I feel like I'm missing part of it but I don't know where it might have vanished too. I thought it was at least twice this size.

In other words I am still here. busy as heck and still determined to get this book written.

I also need to find some BP friendly icons :P

I found and successfully added the original scene for ch1 into the UF bouncing the story up to 1659 words and I am currently poking at it some more before getting ready for church.

I like the way it is going so far. I am trying to come up with a fictional Oklahoma town. Which sucks because I keep coming up with actual names of little towns.

Anyways, I have rl things to do so I'll have to sign off.

Is anyone interested in snips?

The plan was to start writing on the UF idea mid Jan 1, but I went to bed instead. Yesterday found me napping throughout the day.


Today I started working on it. I'm thinking the bare bones of the story can be told in 90k.

Visited the library this morning. Was a wee bit disappointed, until I remembered I can go online and request books to be sent to this branch. Oh happy days. So I just requested a whole bunch of books including ones suggested by my flist. Thank you! :D


It is funny how we grow and change. Once upon a time I loathed the idea of first person. Yet my favorite books are first person. Go fig. I realized that and pushed that loathing aside and have found myself enjoying first person now. Shocking I know.

UF I have long detested. But then I hate fads and it felt very faddish to me. But I have several 'friends' here on lj (most on my other lj actually) who write UF. So it felt like I was betraying my 'friends' by being stubborn and disliking UF. So I started reading it and I found myself liking some of it (God forbid!).

I might even admit to being a fan of it.

But that is what self-education is all about, isn't it? Teaching ones-self to change ones opinion. Learning how to open your mind up more than it was before. Lord knows I have a long way to go, but I really hope, I truly believe I will be a better person because I am pushing out of my comfort zones.

Anyways, I'm not even sure if that makes sense to anyone besides me.
