So, the past week has been a "good news/bad news" sort of week, here at the Means Ranch.
Good News: I found a job with a great, stable, company and a lot of potential/staying power.
Bad News: They don't hire on full time, so it's only part time, for now.
Good News: It's money coming in (which we need) and they're giving me more hours than I expected.
Bad News: No benefits....yet.
Good News: I'm working on a new writing project that has me excited about writing.
Bad News: That, along with the new job (as well as looking into helping my wife and sister-in-law set up another business), is cutting into my blogging/commenting time.
As far as the blogging/commenting goes, I want to apologize for not being as visible, as in the past, and let everyone know that I'll be trying to catch up very soon.
It's a blessing in disguise, though, as I've been grumbling (a lot, recently) about my habit of 'writing about writing more than just...writing'.
Now I'm "writing".
At this point I have:
- A genre
- A (working) title
- Some protagonists
- A vague inkling of antagonist(s)
- Story framework
What I need to delve more into is:
- World building
- An outline(!!!)
- Story tone
Did I miss anything?
Have a great week!
