Is it too soon to revive this thread? Haha. I was looking forward to a long relaxing weekend of actually getting some writing done. Well, maybe not relaxing. My little has the flu and yesterday was down for the count all afternoon and evening. I was kind of looking forward to her being sudued by illness so that I could get some work done. Luckily for her, she seems to have recovered in record time. She is currently bouncing off the walls swearing she won't disturb me "like last time" while my husband is sound asleep. I think I'll be waking up early and fleeing the house tomorrow.

At least I have a solid start on my story. Probably won't have a draft done tonight, though. That's disappointing, as I was hoping to be able to send something out tonight for feedback.

Hope you're all faring better!

I'm feeling good about the direction of my story, but like 2k words is waaaaay too short for what I want to do! Yikes!! I guess I'll get out the first draft and see what can be cut... (Won't be done with a draft until tomorrow, mind you.) 

Also, I have never written suspense. No idea if I'm doing it right. :/ I guess that is what betas will help with!

I WAS freaking out earlier (Heat 6: Sci-Fi, Long Term Parking, Electrician)... because it's sci-fi AGAIN for me and I didn't feel like it was my strong suit during the first round!

But I got an idea and I'm writing words... it's going to be too much... but right now just trying to get stuff going... and hopefully find out where this is going to go.

Good luck all!!

I was okay-ish yesterday. I had a fairly solid idea sorted in my head, which is quite advanced for me on day one. But today I've got up, determined to write and decided I just don't like it at all. It's not that it's bad, it's just not anything special. I think I'm getting the Round Two Fear Pinch
