Ken went to his parents this morning, leaving me all alone at home. I couldn’t be happier. I have gotten through one manuscript (Defenders of the Land) and gotten it to the pre-production stage. This is a hundred thousand word manuscript so it is a lot of work to go through.
I also worked on budget, talked to the girls via text and phone, and finished editing the second Wayfarer book. The last five hours have been productive.
I’m about done with sitting at the computer though. My legs are hurting and I’ve got an idea I want to get down for the third Wayfarer book. It is one more scene. With the other two the scenes just popped into my head and flowed the way I thought they should. I’ve reached a point in the third one where I know where I’m ending up but feel there should be more in between where I’m at and where I’m going to end up.
While that may sound complicated, it isn’t. It just means I need to work on other things while the story mulls. This is why I have one scene in my head and I want to get it down. I’m pretty sure that scene will lead to other scenes.
I haven’t a clue when Ken will be back but I still have a LONG list of things to work on. I have two manuscripts sitting here that need to have the edits entered on the computer. One is the final edits for the manuscript which means I need to get it to the same pre-production stage as the Defenders of the Land. The third one is a first edit on a brand new story.
A nap is sounding really good but I hate wasting alone time sleeping. When I’m alone, I don’t have to feel guilty about spending all my time working on writing, or having my music loud. It is a guilt-free Saturday!
