3 Pages, Writing & Surfing the Web

All I really want to do today is write. It's been a long time since I've felt that way. But there are things I need to do before I can indulge. Ideas are swimming around in my head, I hear snippets of dialogue. It feels good to be back.

This morning I did my three pages and I changed my mind about the explosion. It just doesn't work. But I was able to come up with something else that works equally as well for the story, if not better. So I'm a happy camper right now.

There is a breeze coming in through my windows. It actually feels nice today, not as humid as the weatherman said it was going to be. In fact, the forecast is for 82 on either Tuesday or Wednesday. Wow. I'm having a hard time remembering what 82 degrees feels like.

I finally finished up the things I needed to do and was able to sit and do some writing. I got three pages written, that scene was something I worked through my Morning Pages a few days ago. Those Morning Pages (MPs) helped me get into the head a the secondary character my heroine was dealing with, to understand why he was doing what he was doing. The MPs helped with his characterization, I know him better and understand his relationship with my Heroine better.

I did take some breaks the day to check email & surf the web. I visited Stephanie Bond's website and read her blog. She's just announced her new deal with Mira for a romance trilogy. So she's writing about what goes on when you pitch, brainstorm, plot and write a trilogy. Check it out when you have a chance.

Have a great rest of your weekend!
