Sad To Be Skipping a Blogfest

Tessa is hosting The Blogfest of Death at:

The entries I have read so far have been great. Check it out.

Sadly, I have nothing to contribute. I have a few paragraphs about one of my leads grieving about two of her children that were much too premature -- but something about dead babies completely out of context rubbed me the wrong way.

I almost wrote something new, but it would be something for a project that is just sort of hovering in the atmosphere around me, yet to be realized in anything more concrete than an "I have this idea..." stage. And I don't have time to write something not immediately applicable because I challenged myself to finish my wip before August 1st (I have to go back to being a teacher).

The good news? I am writing. I found the problem in my story, attacked it, and the characters are back on track, developing how they should instead of how I wanted to force them to be. At this rate, I probably will not finish by the end of the month, but, in the long run, I'm going to have a much better book.

Kudos to all the participants who actually participated. To the people who signed up and did not contribute (if there even are any, I haven't seen one yet for this blogfest, but there have been a lot lately), stop doing that! It makes me grouchy.

There's always more blog fests:)

It would be nice to see a death scene with Ned in it. I'd bet he'd have some choice last words.

You know, I could have a flashback on the scene when Ned killed Mary's fiance back when. Hmmmm. It could be in the dream sequence coming up (icy river memories, foreshadowing).

Candace -- Yes, there will be more blogfests. And I'll be ready.

At least you're writing :) and feeling good about it.

I wrote something new for this, using my same characters but from a different POV. It was fun.

Good luck with your new creativity rush.
