I Missed You Last Week


Posted by Jodi | Posted in Some spare thoughts from a writer | Posted on 01-08-2018

This time last week, I was missing in action. I needed to take care of me. That included some dental surgery.

This week I’m back and ready to dedicate even more time to my writing. I have two sets of edits from my critique group to work on, as well as another chapter to finish preparing for them.

This edit is feeling really good. One of the things that makes this possible is that I’m getting input that helps build dimensions to my story. I also find myself in the position of defending some the science that takes place in the book.

The latest of these is where an evacuation takes place and why. I had thought that it was because of the defeat of the army of my male protagonist. I find it is not the defeat by the other waring faction, but by the inhabitants of the planet where the battle takes place. This just happens to be the nursery of the species represented by the antagonist of the story. Now, I just need to work this into the book, and also foreshadow some of the evil to come.

Whatever your creative passion is, I hope that you find it as mesmerizing as I find mine.

Until next week, keep the coffee flowing.

Respectfully submitted,
