I've just watched one of the FASTEST Secret Agents in MSFV history. She sent me her list of winners yesterday afternoon already! And what a list it is.
(Who, me? Enjoy teasing you?)
So I've had a lousy week (the writerly me, not the *real* me). (Wait, are they different?) As in, I haven't been this unproductive while working on a story since--well, I haven't exactly approached working on a story this way before.
You know how I've always said once a pantser, always a pantser? Yeah, that. I'm all for more organization and getting main plot points in order. In fact, it's safe to say that I will NEVER begin a novel cold again. It's too much work on the back end.
But this planning-things-before-I-even-know-my-characters-well-enough? IT'S REALLY HARD.
I've stared so much this week that I think my eyes have shrunk and will soon pop out and roll away.
Funny, how I never stared while I was at the shore. Funny, how the beach lubricated my mind within minutes of settling into my early-morning beach chair. Too bad I wasn't working on this story that week.
Anyway. I'm not whining about it. Just being honest.
I do have one small bit of productivity to announce: I've finally begun the list of published authors with MSFV success stories. Not much more than an alphabetical list at this point; I'll be adding links soon. But it's a start, right?
HERE IS THE LIST.
If you are a published author who boasts an MSFV success story, and your name is not on this list, please email me ASAP!
That's all for now. Winners on Monday--and the start of a fresh, new week as well!
