I know this is coming really late in the week, but we’ve been busy. There are only 68 pages left of New Beginnings, book 5 of the Hartland series, left to edit. It’ll go through a few more edits but this is the major edit where things tend to change. It’s also the edit where we discover whether someone’s appearance keeps changing, such as hair color or eye color. It’s happened to us before. So far, in this book it hasn’t. I think we’ve gotten better about this.
For the first book in the Ordinaries series, we’re 33k into it and I decided to redo the first part of it as I want the story done in first person instead of 3rd. I was playing around with it a few days ago and realized it worked better in first person. So there’s that huge change. It’ll set me back a little bit but I think redoing it in the first person perspective will actually help advance the story as I’ve been stuck on it for a few days now.
And for book 2 in the Magna Luctus series, we’re still hovering over 30k. Haven’t made too much progress on this one, but more story ideas have been coming to us and we’ve had to hammer out a basic story plot for each of them lest our scatterbrains forget about the story. This has happened far too many times to be comfortable with which is why we’ve deemed it necessary to sometimes pause our progress on stories to get these out of our heads and in a workable condition for the future.
I’d also like to report that my back is doing better as long as I don’t overdo it. The horrible pain incident reminded me that since we’ve moved to Savannah, GA I haven’t exactly been keeping up with my daily routine of stretches and going on walks. I’ve been attempting to do this more often in an attempt to eliminate most of the pain. It’s definitely been reducing it.
And yesterday, it snowed here in Pooler, GA. I was so excited to see snow again. I really missed it from when we lived in Casper, WY. It made me more eager to leave this town behind. I can’t wait to get back to where it snows occasionally. Watching the heavy snowflakes fall was so peaceful. I smiled most of yesterday because of it. I probably could have written more had I not been watching the snow so much, but I wouldn’t change it. it’s the little things in life that you tend to enjoy more, and for me, it was the snow yesterday.
Everyone have a great rest of the week and enjoy the weekend. We’ll be continuing to work on our stories.
