What I’ve been doing on my summer vacation

June 15, 2013

In addition to making mid-course corrections on the WIP, I’ve been reading a bit more than usual. Yay! Finally got to Chuck Wendig’s Blackbirds, a great, taut thriller dressed up as kick-ass urban fantasy. Also read Robert Evert’s Riddle in Stone, the opening salvo in a fantasy series featuring a bookish, middle-aged protagonist whose attempt to go on an adventure leads to dark, dark places. And extremely well-spoken goblins. Very different books, both good reads. Next up, my friend Anne Nesbet’s middle-grade fantasy A Box of Gargoyles.

Minor house projects: my wife and I painted two walls we’d had to do major patches for after removing built-in or -on cabinetry.

Birthdays: My son’s, and mine. Catching up from vacation time at work.

Itching to get back to actual, you know, writing. But I’m at the point in the WIP where I feel I need to pin down the contours of the rest of the plot, and it’s slow work, slower than I like. I keep telling myself once it’s in place I can zip through the balance, and that may be so, but I want to be producing prose NOW.

I suppose I could do one more chapter. I have more than that plotted out. What harm could come of it? *cue ominous music*

And now, the family unit and the Oregon Dunes.
