Work In Progress Wednesday
Okay, well, this week I focused on my non fiction WiP...more because I can work on it while my kids are buzzing around than because I really wanted to :) But I did go through two massively huge poetry books, combing through them for any hint of heroic couplets....I found a total of 20 heroic couplet poems....out of a hundred or so poets (I didn't take the time to count, but there were two books over a thousand pages each....so, a lot of poets) :D Now, that isn't very many poems...especially because I probably won't be able to use all of them.
Heroic couplets are good people! Why won't anyone use them anymore? *le sigh*
On the fiction front, I've got bubkiss (is that how you spell that?) I do have a really good scene floating through my head that I will madly scrabble down sometime tonight. I have no idea how it will fit in with my storyline, but when your MC is writhing on the floor in excuriating pain while her friends stand around looking at her...I gotta fit it in somewhere :D
I also think I'm going to try writing by hand a try again. Elana seems to be enjoying it :) Perhaps my problem is I'm trying to write in those large notebooks you'd take to class for notes...or maybe I'm using the wrong color ink. Perhaps composition books and blue pens will make all the difference ;-)
In any case, once again I will make the resolution to work harder and accomplish more :) In my defense, several very awesome books came my way this week (I will post about those tomorrow in my reading list update). So, the vast majority of my spare time was spent devouring other people's work....not a bad way to spend my time actually :D
