Time for critiquing was in short supply, but I was back at it today. I had two novels to critique before the conference this month (I'm well on my way). You know what's hard about that? We were asked not to fool with our own manuscripts while we work on the others so that we'll have some perspective when the workshop rolls around.
I'll tell you what, I'm going nuts. Reading the other MSs, I keep noticing things I did or did not do. I have little virtual sticky notes all over my screen to remind me what to fix when I can get back to it. It's making my eyeballs itch.
I decided to distract myself by diving into my new project. A bit. I'm taking character and world building notes, naming people, and starting to recognize songs I'd like on my new soundtrack. Here's what I've got so far.
This one's gonna be fun.
How was your weekend?
