Critiques, Posts and other Random Stuffies

The Boston terrier woke me up at 3:00 AM to be let out.

I want to be grumpy but have you seen a Boston’s face? It is irresistible. Irresistible, I tell you! Plus, it was 17 degrees F outside. I am sure he needed to go.

Anyway, made some revisions on Bunny Trouble (story of my life) making a portion of the novel that was Tell into Show (here I thought those were all gone). It was a net loss of about 100 words, so that makes me happy. The conversation I added seems a tad stilted, so it will take more polishing.

Added about 2500 words in The Baby Dancers. I was going to dive strait into the action but decided to go into action of a different sort (mouhahahaha!). The result was upping the stakes. The stakes are high for my protagonists, and the manuscript is about to burst with tension. The stage is now set for the big action scene. And what an action scene it will be.

Why? Oh I am so glad you asked. Because I have GOBLIN NINJAS, that’s why!

Ahem. I also critiqued ten chapters of a fantasy manuscript. I had pointed suggestions, but all-in-all, good stuff. I feel the writer has a new idea to an old myth, and that’s just yummy to read. I cannot wait to read more.

Finally, I am working on a big post explaining not guns, but the “gun” culture for writers. It is a slow slog. I wanted to post it yesterday, but decided to let it slide a bit, the work in progress is consuming me (because, of course, there are GOBLIN NINJAS).  I have picked up a couple of additional readers. Having looked at their blogs, I am tailoring my post so it is effective for them.

    There is a large pent-up demand for Goblin Ninjas. Who am I to resist such a pull?
