I took yesterday off (day 6) from writing, post-doctor’s appointment for my annual physical. Today, I was feeling under the weather, but I knew I needed to write something, so I pushed through it and did 791 words. Yay!

My character and plot evolution continue to amaze me, as I let the story take me where it wants to go. I’d always wanted to include an element of rebellion in the plot (e.g., the little guy takes on the big guy), and this new direction is definitely including that as a major plot element.

I also like how my main character is evolving in the face of this particular plot element. I am much more pleased with how she is shaping up. I never really connected with her original iteration; I had her as young and naive and since I am neither in real life, it was hard to make those traits come across convincingly on paper.

Now I need to turn my attention to more final edits on my upcoming book. Woohoo!

As for what I’m reading, I finally finished The Cocaine Chronicles and am debating on what to read next. Stay tuned.

Thanks for stopping by.
