We had some lovely weather this week! I like being warm. It makes me think of days like this one, when a friend and I went tromping through a state park.
There were no more Legos involved in revising this week. I read Violence: A Writer’s Guide by Rory Miller. This was fascinating and gave me a lot of information on how fights really go, though I’m not quite sure how to translate it into my fight scene. I’m not sure I want my novel to be as graphic as the real deal. There will be consequences to the violence though, and the book was very helpful there. I gave up on that scene and moved on to other things that are easier for me to write currently. I can always go back.
And so it continues. I don’t know if I’ll hit my March 1 goal for this draft, but that’s okay. It was not based on much anyway. I’ll just keep revising, one chapter at a time.
The Other Idea
When I tire of my current project, I daydream about my next one. I don’t have much going on there, but I did watch Everest: Man vs Mountain on Amazon for research. I’d watch this documentary regardless as it is interesting. It also lacks in the fake drama found in most reality TV. There’s nothing to fake when climbing Everest.
I also watched Atomic Blonde. It had nothing to do with either idea unless I call it research for fight scenes. Yes, let’s do that!
Progress toward my 2018 Goodreads goal of 60 books has slowed thanks to The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson. I think they should count for more than one book! You can find my review of Way of Kings earlier this week.
